The Bayern Munich Frauen shellacked Kazakh side BIIK Kazygurt in the UEFA Women’s Champions League 6-1. The victory was the team’s 19th in a row and puts the Frauen into the driver’s seat for the return leg.
“Of course, I am very satisfied with the result. Before the game we had the goal of winning the game by three goals, that would have been huge for me,” said Frauen manager Jens Scheuer per FCBayern.com. “We scored six goals and the girls did a great job. We played great football, especially in the second half, and laid the foundations for the second leg.”
Lineth Beerensteyn (10’) and Lea Schüller (27’) gave the Frauen a 2-0 lead heading into halftime, but the squad would completely take over the game in the final 45 minutes.

Linda Dallmann (47’), Hanna Glas (62’), and Karólína Lea Vilhjálmsdóttir (67’) all quickly found the back of the net in the second before BIIK Kazygurt’s Rachael Kundananji (81’) cut the lead to 5-1.
For Vilhjálmsdóttir, the Icelandic newcomer was on the pitch for two minutes in her debut with the team before scoring. Not a bad first impression, eh?
“I’m very happy about my first game for the club,” said Vilhjálmsdóttir to the team’s Twitter account. “Hopefully it’s the start of something big!“
Dallmann later converted a penalty kick in the 90th minute to give herself a brace and also effectively end the game.
“Our goal is for a commanding victory,” said Dallmann, regarding the return leg of the tie.
If the Frauen perform anything like they did earlier today, that should not be an issue.
