Despite Bayern Munich’s narrow defeat to Lyon in the UEFA Women’s Champions League Quarterfinals, the Bundesliga still has another hope at lifting the trophy in San Sebastián. Wolfsburg take on Barcelona in the first Semifinal, and the perennial Frauen Bundesliga champions are chomping at the bit to get back on top of Europe.
Barcelona made it to last year’s Final after eliminated Bayern in the Semifinal; however, they weren’t able to overcome the power of Lyon in the Final. This year, Barcelona are staring down another Bundesliga side, but it’s now one that is focused on one mission and one mission only — reach the Final.
Wolfsburg has been second to only Lyon in Europe for the last few years, and they’ve been hellbent on getting back to Champions League glory once again. They won the UWCL back-to-back before Lyon’s current run of four straight. Now, after Bayern showed Lyon isn’t as powerful as everyone thought, Wolfsburg are targeting a return to the top of Europe.
Come on Wolfsburg!
Location: Anoeta Stadium, San Sebastián, Spain
