Frauen Bundesliga round-up: Wolfsburg stay top and Bayern Munich secure win with three goals in nine minutes
The Frauen Bundesliga got back underway this weekend, one of the only women’s leagues to restart amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And it did not disappoint with 18 goals and some breathtaking last minute wins.
Here’s everything you need to know about the German league.
Bayern Munich beat Hoffenheim 3-0. The game had little to talk about until the last part of the match where Munich scored three goals in nine minutes.
Kathrin-Julia Hendrich scored Munich’s first in the 83rd minute which was quickly followed up by Jovana Damnjanović’s strike in the 87th.
To add insult in injury time for Hoffenheim, Lina Magull bagged Munich’s third in the 93rd. The victory was a crucial one as it meant Munich remained in second position and Hoffenheim lost the opportunity to overtake their rivals.
Elsewhere, Freiburg beat Turbine Potsdam 3-2 despite being 2-0 down at half time, Małgorzata Mesjasz and Caroline Siems the scorers for Potsdam.
Freiburg’s comeback began in the 55th minute as Klara Bühl scored and half an hour later she struck again to bring her team level.
Naomi Mégroz hit in a last minute winner to secure three points for her team.
Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen were defeated by MSV Duisburg 2-0 as Nina Lange scored two goals in the first half to secure victory.
And yesterday Wolfsburg dished out a dominating 4-0 victory over Koln to remain top of the table.
The league leaders headed into half time 2-0 up thanks to strikes from Pernille Harder and Svenja Huth.
As the second half got underway, Wolfsburg had to wait 20 minutes before Alexandra Popp added their third goal of the afternoon.
Koln’s Amber Barrett received a red card in the 76th minute and two minutes later Harder put another past the keeper to seal their win. Koln remain 11th in the placings.
Finally, FFC Frankfurt moved into fourth in the table after their 3-1 win over SC Sand.
Sand struck first as they scored through Dina Blagojević in the fifth minute, but Frankfurt hit back with Sjoeke Nüsken, Laura Freigang and Barbara Dunst all scoring to secure the win.
The next round of the women’s German league will start on Thursday with action right through until Sunday.
