Winning run extended

VfL Women beat SV Meppen 4-0 – their 10th straight win in all competitions.

At the end of a busy week – and the beginning of an action-packed month – VfL Wolfsburg lived up to their role as favourites at SV Meppen, winning 4-0 to consolidate second place in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga.

Rebecka Blomqvist, Alexandra Popp, Dominique Janssen and Ewa Pajor – who was making her Bundesliga comeback – got the goals for the She-Wolves on their first ever visit to the promoted side. The Green-and-Whites are back in European action on Wednesday 10 March (kick-off 14:00 CET, live on WölfeTV), when they face LSK Kvinner in the return leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League last-16 tie. The game is taking place in Györ, Hungary.

“We created a lot of pressure”
