FULL TIME: Bayern Munich 2-2 Paris Saint Germain
We are on to penalties to decide which team will play for the championship on Saturday. The loser will head to the consolation game.
90’- Four minutes of stoppage time. If there are no goals, we go to penalties.
89’- Vilhjamsdottir gets a shot, but it goes across the face of goal and out for a goal kick. PSG makes a trio of subs bringing on Khelifi, Fazer, and Hurtre.
87’- Bayern get a corner kick, but the ref blows it dead for a foul in the box. Free kick in the box for PSG.
81’- Bayern making their final three subs. Jakobsson makes her Bayern debut. Glas and Vilhjalmsdottir also come on. Dallmann, Rall, and Asseyi make way.
74- PSG subs: Cascarino and Diallo come on for Le Guilly and Hamraoui.
72’- Bayern get a couple of corners that come to nothing.
70’- Beerensteyn smashes a shot that Voll saves in the PSG goal. Magull played her into space.
68’- Asseyi receives a yellow card for an accumulation of fouls.
66’- Bayern are making three substitutions. Magull, Damnjanovic, and Beerensteyn replace Schuller, Buhl, and Kumagai.
62’- Däbritz sends in a beautiful free kick for PSG, but De Almeida isn’t able to make solid contact on it. The ball goes out for a corner.
57’- Goal PSG. Baltimore sends in a corner kick, and Hamraoui heads it into to the net to equalize the game at 2-2.
55- Asseyi brings down a switch with a great touch. She dribbles into the penalty area and drops the pass to Simon, but her curling effort goes over the crossbar.
49- ALERT BERNI IS ON THE DRUMS!

46’- The second half is underway!
HALFTIME: Bayern Munich 2-1 Paris Saint-Germain
Bayern will be happy with the first half. They controlled the majority of the match and were justly rewarded with two goals.
45+2- GOAL FC BAYERN! Simon bangs a free kick off the crossbar, but Schüller is on hand to head it into the goal for the 2-1 lead!
Goal, @FCBfrauen! Just like that, Bayern have taken the lead! Lea Schüller with the header after a stunning free kick from Carolin Simon hits off the crossbar.#FCBPSG | 2-1 | #TheWomensCup pic.twitter.com/wwUNVu7wDm— The Equalizer (@EqualizerSoccer) August 18, 2021
43- GOAL FC BAYERN! Schüller plays a ball wide to the edge of the penalty area for Kumagai who made a run out of midfield. She hits a low cross behind the PSG defense that only Dallmann can get to, and she passes it into the back of the PSG net for the equalizer. What a beautiful goal.
40- Geyoro is down for PSG. She’s getting treatment, but it looks like she’s going to continue.
36- Rall gets booked for Bayern. Baltimore had her beat again, and she just tugged her shorts to pull her back.
35- Dallmann feeds a beautiful ball to Schüller, but her shot goes just wide of the PSG goal. That was really a good play.
33- Asseyi gets through after a quick one-two, but the return pass is just out of reach in the PSG box.
28- Simon is down injured, but it looks like she’ll be okay to continue. The teams take a hydration break.
21- Bayern come right back down the other end and nearly find the equalizer! First, Asseyi gets a shot off, but Le Guilly gets her body in the way and blocks a probable goal. The clearance falls out to Zadrazil outside the penalty area, and her shot just misses.
20’- Goal PSG. Baltimore breaks down the left flank and lofts a cross into the penalty box, and Katoto nails a header to put the Parisians up 1-0.
17- Bayern have been controlling the tempo so far in this one, but both sides are staying organized and neither have had any true chances.
8- Bayern have PSG pinned back right now. Two corner kicks came to nothing, but Bayern keep possession and get a throw in. PSG eventually recover and pick up possession.
5’- Some back and forth from both teams so far, but it’s still early and nothing to show of it. Of note: former Bayern midfielder Sara Däbritz got the start for PSG.
1- The ball is rolling in Louisville as Bayern and PSG get underway!
Here’s Bayern’s lineup for today’s match, and it’s our first look at Saki Kumagai in the Bavarian jersey. She joined the club this summer but hasn’t played in any of the preseason games to date since she was with Japan at the Olympics. The other two Olympians, Sweden’s Hanna Glas and Sofia Jakobsson will start this one on the bench.
Twenty two year old Janina Leitzig gets the start in goal today, and one would suspect that Laura Benkarth will get the nod against the NWSL side.
Lea Schüller gets the start up top and should be a ball of fun!
The four-team tournament was structured so that the two American teams are in one semifinal and the two European clubs are in the other. This guarantees that there will be at least one American and one European team in the Final.
The first match on the day will feature the reigning champions of Germany, Bayern Munich, taking on the reigning champions of France, Paris Saint-Germain. Following that, the match featuring two NWSL clubs will take place when the Chicago Red Stars will take on Racing Louisville.
It’s Bayern time.
Location: Lynn Family Stadium, Louisville, Kentucky, USA
Time: 4:00 pm local time, 5:00 pm EST
