VfL women believe in the semi-finals of the premier class
London (dpa / lni) – Despite the narrowly missed away win in the first leg of the quarter-final against Arsenal, the VfL Wolfsburg players still believe in reaching the Champions League semi-finals. “It’s halftime now, we can do it at home next week,” Wolfsburg manager Tommy Stroot said after the 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
After Tabea Waßmuth gave VfL the lead in front of 5,018 spectators in the 19th minute, Lotte Wubben-Moy scored the well-deserved equalizer for the hosts shortly before the end (89). “The late goal hurt a bit, also because I had it 2-0 on my foot before, but unfortunately the ball bounced down the field from inside the post,” said striker Wassmuth. “In the end it’s zero now. Arsenal are coming to us and they can bundle up for now.”
The second leg will take place next Thursday (6:45 p.m. / DAZN) at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg. “Now we know how it feels to play against Arsenal and we want to progress perfectly at home,” said Stroot.
