In the last 15 days, Bayern Frauen has played five games, and three of them have been on the road. During that time they have won four of the games and earned a draw against the current second place team. To make it even more impressive, they have scored 20 goals during those five games and have only given up one goal. Someone needs to get those girls to Oktoberfest and fast.
Bayern faced MSV Duisburg at home today to end the hectic two weeks. Coming into the game Bayern was third place in the Frauen-Bundesliga and Duisburg was in last. The skill difference was clear from the beginning as Bayern had plenty of chances early in the game but could not convert.
In the 23rd minute, Eunice Beckmann finally broke through with a close range shot into the top corner of the net. Eight minutes later Vanessa Bürki made the score 2-0 with a powerful shot.
Late in the first half, Melanie Leupolz scored to make it a 3-0 game heading into the halftime break. Leupolz was substituted out at the half as Bayern brought in Mana Iwabuchi.
Bayern kept the pressure on during the second half, and Vivianne Miedema scored a pair of goals shortly after the hour mark. In the 85th minute, Katie Stengel scored to make it a 6-0 game.
Duisburg did not pose a threat to Bayern throughout the game and the home side took all three points. Bayern's depth has been tested during the last two weeks, and they have been impressive. Twenty goals in five games have helped Bayern stay undefeated in the young Frauen-Bundesliga campaign. After six matches, Bayern sits in third place with 14 points. They are two points behind league leader VfL Wolfsburg, and one point behind Turbine Pottsdam.
There are no midweek games for the Bayern Frauen this week, but they face a crucial test next Sunday against second place Turbine Pottsdam. The game will be an away match and will certainly test the young squad.
