The FC Bayern women’s busy schedule continues after their 1-1 draw away at FC Twente in the Champions League, with a Bundesliga game lined up away to FF USV Jena this Sunday at 2 pm CET.

While FC Bayern looks to hold onto their lead in the Allianz Women’s Bundesliga table, Jena needs every point they can get after a big opening loss to runners-up Wolfsburg, draw with Leverkusen, a win against recently promoted Bremen, and a loss to Essen.

“Jena is a very aggressive and physical team that always fights to the very end,” said defender Gina Lewandowski ahead of the game. “We’ll be pushing ourselves to the limit in this game, especially now with midweek games it’ll be a difficult away game for us. We’re aware of it and we’ll be focused from the start and will get right to it.”

The record against Jena is in FC Bayern’s favor. Out of seven encounters at the Ernst-Abbe Stadion, the hosts were only able to come away with one draw, while the FC Bayern women were able to take home all points from the remaining six games for a goal difference of 21-8.

Lena Lotzen, Katharina Baunach, Sarah Romert, Veronica Boquete, and Mana Iwabuchi will not be available.
