Wolfsburg beat Freiburg 4-1 in the German Cup final.
Just over two weeks before the Champions League against FC Barcelona, Wolfsburg won their ninth consecutive Women’s German Cup by dominating Freiburg 4-1 late Thursday afternoon in Cologne.
Tied at the break (1-1) after an own goal from Freiburg defender Lisa Karl (4th), and an equalizer from Janina Minge’s header just before the break, Wolfsburg made the difference in the second half by Rebecka Blomqvist (58th), Alexandra Popp (84th) and Dominique Janssen (90th from the penalty spot).
Wolfsburg have won the last nine German Cup finals, a hegemony that began in May 2015. Adding the 2013 edition, the Louves are now the most successful with 10 trophies against 9 for Frankfurt.
Beaten last weekend in the league by Frankfurt (4-0), Popp’s teammates are four points behind Bayern Munich, who can secure the title this weekend.
Wolfsburg beat Arsenal in the Champions League semi-finals on May 1 and will face Barça in the final on June 3 in Eindhoven (Netherlands).
