Shortly before the end, VfL Wolfsburg gave away their first victory in the Champions League against Chelsea. In their home debut, however, the female wolfs didn’t let anything go and won by a clear margin.
The footballers of VfL Wolfsburg easily won their first home game in the Champions League group stage. The German cup winners defeated the underdog Servette FC Chenois from Switzerland on Wednesday evening 5-0 (3-0).
Svenja Huth brought the Wolfsburg women into the lead in the 18th minute in front of 869 spectators. Two goals by Tabea Waßmuth (26./43.) Made things clear before the break. In the second half, the two Dutch women Dominique Janssen (51st) and Joelle Smits (68th) met for VfL.
The Champions League winners from 2013 and 2014 had already impressed in their first group game against last year’s finalists FC Chelsea (3: 3). However, the Wolfsburg women are not among the closest favorites this season. On the one hand, the team of the new coach Tommy Stroot is in a state of upheaval. On the other hand, three important players – Ewa Pajor, Alexandra Popp and Pia-Sophie Wolter – will be out for several months due to severe knee injuries.
