The sixth matchday of the Frauen Bundesliga has been completed with VfL Wolfsburg maintaining their 100% record and opening up a four-point lead at the top of the table at the same time.
The weekend action began on Friday with Duisburg beating Köln 2-1. Miray Cin opened the scoring for the hosts on 68 minutes putting in a rebound after Doerthe Hoppius saw her header saved. Minutes later it was 2-0 with Hoppius’ header this time counting. Sarah Puntigam scored with ten minutes left to set up a nervy finish.
Despite storming into a 3-1 lead by half time, Eintracht Frankfurt were pegged back and eventually held to a 3-3 draw by Hoffenheim on Saturday. Sophia Kleinherne, Geraldine Reuteler and Laura Freigang all scored in the first period with Nicole Billa answering for the hosts. Two goals in the second period from Katharina Naschenweng saved a point for Hoffenheim.
Turbine Potsdam went down to a 5-0 home defeat to Freiburg to keep them winless this season. All five goals came in the second half with Jana Vojtekova, Chiara Bouziane, Giovanna Hoffmann, Cora Zicai and Judith Steinart getting on the scoresheet to move the Breisgauer up to fourth in the table.
After their loss to Wolfsburg last week and a last-gasp Champions League win in midweek, Bayern Munich beat Meppen 3-1 with all goals coming in the final twenty minutes. Bayern went two-up through Klara Bühl and Lea Schüller with Kristina Maksuti pulling one back. The ultimate winner came in the 82nd minute from Franziska Kett.
Bayer Leverkusen thrashed Essen 6-0 with braces from both Caroline Siems (both just before half time) and Kristin Kögel. The others were scored by Amira Arfaoui and Alexandra Emmerling. The weekend was completed with VfL Wolfsburg keeping up their 100% start to the season with a 3-2 win over strugglers Werder Bremen. Rebecka Blomqvist and Alexandra Popp scored before Werder’s Rieke Dieckmann pulled one back. Blomqvist added a third before a Christin Meyer goal kept the visitors honest until the final whistle.
