Seventh German championship
10: 1! Wolves unseat FC Bayern with a bang

Only one victory would have been enough, but it will be dismantling: VfL Wolfsburg overtake Carl Zeiss Jena and secure the seventh German women’s Bundesliga championship with a 10: 1. There are eleven scorers in an extraordinary match, last year’s champions FC Bayern can no longer catch up with the women of Lower Saxony.

After the shooting, the champagne corks popped: with their seventh shot, the women of VfL Wolfsburg became Bundesliga record champions. On the penultimate matchday, VfL won 10-1 (5-0) against relegated Carl Zeiss Jena and used their first match point to equalize with seven titles to 1. FFC Frankfurt (now Eintracht).

With four points clear of the dethroned champions Bayern Munich (52), the Wolfsburg women (56) can no longer be captured. Only SSG Bergisch Gladbach, who had triumphed nine times before the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1990, have won more championships.

VfL can even crown a season of upheaval for the team of coaches and the squad with two goals: in the final of the DFB Cup on 28 May in Cologne, the defending champion meets Turbine Potsdam. In the Champions League, however, she ended up in the semifinals: the FC Barcelona title holder was too big a size for wolf women.

Bayern kept in check

In the struggle for national supremacy, however, VfL kept rivals FC Bayern in check. All three duels with Monaco, including the cup semi-finals, were won by Wolfsburg: from 6-0 beaten in the second leg of the championship in early April, the champagne was cold. The championship trophy will be awarded after Sunday’s home game (14:00 / MagentaSport) against Bayer Leverkusen.

In front of 760 spectators at Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld, VfL achieved the highest victory of the season. Ewa Pajor (8th), Sveindis Jonsdottir (10th), Felicitas Rauch (25th), Lena Lattwein (38th), Jill Roord (46th), Alexandra Popp (57th), Tabea Waßmuth (81th), Pauline Bremer (82 ‘) and Svenja Huth (86’) scored for Wolfsburg. Own goal by Tina Kremlitschka (19 ‘), Julia Arnold (79’) of consolation for the hosts.

Two other decisions will only be made on the last day of play. The race for third place in the Champions League is still open behind the leading pair. After Turbine Potsdam lost 2-0 (0-0) to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, the two rivals will enter the season finale on equal points. The second relegated is still being defined. SC Sand, penultimate in the standings, narrowed their gap to SGS Essen (0: 3 at SC Freiburg) by two points by winning 1-0 (0-0) at home 1. FC Köln on Sunday.
