FFC Frankfurt halt Bayern Munich's unbeaten run

New, comments

FC Bayern had to surrender to a 0-1 loss against UEFA Women's Champions League semifinalists, FFC Frankfurt. Following this loss and Wolfsburg's victory against Bayern Leverkusen, the gap has been reduced to nine points hence the Bavarian side missed the chance to seal the title.

The stage was set for Bayern Munich to be confirmed as champions of Germany, but the 2,000 spectators who gathered at the match remained disillusioned as FFC Frankfurt gatecrashed the party snatching the three points in Bavaria, thanks to the German international's goal, Saskia Bartusiak. This loss meant also that Frankfurt halted Bayern Munich's unbeaten run in the league after 40 matches. Bayern Munich are now leading by nine points ahead of Wolfsburg, but however with three matches left, it has to take one of the biggest bottle jobs from Bayern Munich for them to lose the title.

Following the match, Bayern Munich's coach Thomas Worle described Bayern Munich's first half performance as a passive one and that it was necessary to modify the team in the second half. He also added that his team was much better in the second 45 minutes, however Lady Luck was not on their side.

Still topping the domestic league with a nine-point advantage, Worle's team can be within reach of triumphing in the domestic league again if they see off SC Sand, next Sunday.
