Bayern Munich received a second half goal from Marina Hegering to edge Freiburg 1-0. The win keeps the Bavarians at the top of the Frauen Bundesliga table after three games, ahead of Wolfsburg thanks to goal differential.

With numerous opportunities throughout the first half, Bayern should’ve taken the lead; however, Freiburg’s defense managed to bend-but-not-break and keep the Bavarians off of the scoreboard.

“We started very well, but failed to take the lead in the first ten minutes. The chances were there,” Jens Scheuer said. “Then Freiburg did well too, played along, but wasn’t necessarily dangerous.”

Summer signing Klara Bühl finally made her debut for Bayern, having recovered from shoulder surgery in the summer. Bühl came on at halftime and played well for her forty-five minutes on the field: “I was very happy about my debut. I was a bit nervous for the first few minutes, of course, but it was fun to play in the Bayern Munich shirt.”

Hegering’s winner would eventually come in the 66th minute following a Bühl free kick into the box. After the ball pinged around on the head of several different players, Hegering smacked the ball on the ground through everyone into the back of the net.

Bayern XI: Benkarth - Glas - Beerensteyn (46. Bühl) - Dallmann - Schüller (87. Ilestedt) - Lohmann - Magull (57. Zadrazil) - Asseyi - Wenninger - Hegering - Simon (62. Laudehr)

On October 4, Bayern will travel to Essen to kick off a week with three matches. The Bavarians will host Duisburg on Wednesday before capping the week with a trip to Hoffenheim on Sunday the 11th.
