FC Bayern Frauen are champions of Germany! Bayern Munich clinched their fourth Bundesliga title with a 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. The result leaves them at the top of the Bundesliga, two points ahead of title rivals Wolfsburg, who, despite their resounding 8-0 win over Werder Bremen, had to settle for second place.
Bayern were two points ahead of Wolfsburg coming into the final matchday of the season, and technically needed a win over Eintracht to secure the title, but due to their overwhelmingly superior goal difference, they really only needed a point. This did not deter Bayern from playing their own game, however, and two goals from midfielder Linda Dallmann found the Frauen up 2-0 at halftime. An own goal from Frankfurt’s Laura Storzel put the game out of reach, and Lea Schüller finished things off in the dying seconds.
This game oddly mirrored the season finale for the men’s team back in 2019. Bayern were two points ahead of second placed Dortmund, and they only needed a point against, guess who, Eintracht Frankfurt, to win the league. The result was a blowout win just like today, and there were also a few farewells; Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, and Rafinha bid farewell to the Allianz Arena, while Bayern Frauen midfielder Simone Laudehr laced up her boots for the last time in this game. What a way to go out. On a slightly somber note, both captains, Manuel Neuer and Lina Magull, were injured for their respective finales. It’s like poetry, it rhymes.
The ladies in red have played an outstanding season, winning all but two of their twenty-two league games and only losing once. They also reached the semifinals of the Champions League and the DFB-Pokal. All in all, it was probably one of the most successful seasons in the Frauen’s history, if not the most successful.
The Frauen’s title win means that FC Bayern can celebrate both their men’s and women’s teams winning the Bundesliga for the third time, after back to back triumphs in 2015 and 2016. After the great season that the boys had, it’s great to see that the girls had an amazing season as well, not to mention both rightfully claiming their spots as the best teams in Germany.
Glückwunsch, Mädels! We at BFW couldn’t be prouder! Enjoy that title, you deserve it!
