VfL Wolfsburg’s footballers can chill the master sparkling wine: The DFB Cup winner won his Bundesliga catch-up game at SGS Essen four days after the end of the Champions League semi-final against FC Barcelona (3: 1).
Two match days before the end, the leaders’ lead to defending champion Bayern Munich again is four points.
Dominique Janssen (16th, penalty/67th), Ewa Pajor (28th), Tabea Waßmuth (33.) and Sandra Starke (90.+3) met for VfL.
Vivien Endemann (36th) was successful for the Esseners who have not yet secured relegation.
Wolfsburg can make the seventh championship title perfect on Sunday (4:00 p.m./Magenta catch-up game) with a victory at the FC Carl Zeiss Jena, which is a relegated.
With a defeat by Bayern in Leverkusen, the championship would even be decided on Friday.
