Bayern Munich Frauen return to winning ways

Bayern Munich Frauen's progressed victoriously in their march towards a Bundesliga triumph with a 2-0 victory over rivals Werder Bremen to cement their lead atop the Bundesliga table.



Two goals in a span of 4 minutes between the first and the second half were enough for the Bavarian side to register an important win over Werder Bremen, to return to winning ways following last week's 1-1 draw against title challengers VfL Wolfsburg.

German international Melanie Behringer and Spanish genius Veronique Boquete were the goal scorers, with the latter returning in action following her absence in last week's clue match away at Wolfsburg. Both sides put up an impressive display, sharing goal scoring opportunities but it was the leaders who managed to forge ahead late in the first half through a whipped free kick from Melanie Behringer.

Boquete immediately wrapped up the victory earlier in the second half with a low drive shot deflected by a Werder Bremen's defender following a wonderful footwork action by the same Spanish midfielder. Werder Bremen's reaction was immediate but they could not penetrate the Frauen's defensive line, who seemed very compact and on form.

The Bundesliga will now stop for a couple of weeks to leave the stage for the international break as the German WNT will be involved in the first edition of the SheBelieves Cup which will take place in the United States next week.

Bayern Munich Frauen starting XI: Korpela; Lewandowski, Boquete, Abbe, Behringer, Miedema, Holstad, Maier, Schnaderbeck, Rolser, Dabritz.
