2-1 win at FC Bayern Campus
FC Bayern Women beat Wolfsburg
FC Bayern Women beat VfL Wolfsburg 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. In the presence of club president Herbert Hainer, Linda Dahlmann (29') handed Bayern the lead, with Klara Bühl (37') doubling the advantage. Wolfsburg's Lena Oberdorf (62') pulled one back, but the champions deservedly won their home match in the Google Pixel Women's Bundesliga.
The victory means FCB top the table of the Google Pixel Women's Bundesliga on 14 points from six matches, one clear of Wolfsburg.
Head coach Alexander Straus made one change to the XI that saw off RB Leipzig. Klara Bühl replaced Lina Magull, who is still sidelined with a muscle injury. Munich had to do without long-term absentees Pernille Harder (ligament injury), Carolin Simon (cruciate ligament rupture), Weronika Zawistowska (cruciate ligament rupture) and Cecilía Rán Rúnarsdóttir (patella dislocation). Sydney Lohmann and Sam Kerr returned to the squat.
The 4,347 crowd at the FC Bayern Campus saw Munich in the driving seat from the off. The first big chance came after only seven minutes, Bühl teeing up Sarah Zadrazil. Georgia Stanway had a go from distance two minutes later, but Wolfsburg's Lisa Schmitz made a fine save.
Munich's dominance was rewared after 28 minutes. Schmitz parried a Bühl shot, with Dallmann on hand to mop up and open the scoring. FCB refused to ease off and soon won the ball in Wolfsburg's half, Bühl's fine low effort finding the far corner of the net from 18 yards.
Action-packed second half
Bayern picked up where they left off and were awarded a penalty after Maria-Koelle Wedemeyer's challenge on Lea Schüller, but Jovana Damnjanović hit the crossbar. Bühl soon hit the post.
The visitors pulled one back out of the blue when Oberdorf let fly from distance after the hour mark. FCB were unimpressed and went looking for a third goal. Munich dominated possession, with Wolfsburg looking to strike on the break. Bayern went on to seal a deserved victory in the top match thanks to defensive strength in the last quarter-hour.
