German soccer champions Wolfsburg missed out on an early group win in the preliminary round of Group B in the UEFA Women’s Champions League. In a one-sided match, the Bundesliga leaders never got more than 0-0 against bottom-winless Slavia Prague. Wolves had already made the leap to the knockout stage in the last round.
In front of 3,000 spectators, the hosts despaired again and again about Slavia’s goalkeeper Olevi Lukasova. In the face of overwhelming superiority, coach Tommy Strutt’s team squandered many good chances to score. North Germany can secure the missing point to win the group in their final group stage match on December 22 (6.45pm/DAZN) at SKN St. Polten in Austria.
Bayern Munich also booked a ticket to the quarter-finals on Thursday. Depending on the current situation at the table in the individual groups, the Munich team could meet the London club there. Both Chelsea and Arsenal, who are currently top of their group, are potential rivals for Bayern, who are likely to finish second. Dueling with VfL Wolfsburg is not possible.
