VfL Wolfsburg footballers are German champions for the seventh time. After Sunday’s 10-1 (5-0) victory over relegated Carl-Zeiss Jena, the “wolves” can no longer be caught by FC Bayern Munich on the last day of the match.

The fact that the setting of the stadium construction site in Jena was anything but perfect for the championship party did not bother the Wolfsburg team and the entourage who had traveled with them at all. Minutes before the final whistle, substitute players were dancing on the sidelines in pre-made championship shirts, and there were loud chants of “This is what the winners look like” and “Stand up for Wolves” from the stands.

Cardboard shell in Jena, real trophy in Wolfsburg

At the final whistle no one held back, everyone in the middle circle hugged each other and held up a cardboard bowl they had brought with them. The real trophy comes after the home game against Bayer Leverkusen next Sunday (2 p.m., live on NDR).

The return trip to Wolfsburg should be wet and happy. There were “one or two cold drinks” on board the bus, said the injured Pia-Sophie Wolter. “We’ve worked hard for this, it’s sensational. I’m looking forward to the return trip,” said VfL coach Tommy Stroot with a broad smile.

Good VfL season despite all the adversities

The VfL entourage can then celebrate an almost perfect season. Coach Stroot’s team, which only came to Aller from Enschede last summer and defied all adversity impressively – personnel changes with nine departures, injuries to top players like Ewa Pajor, Alexandra Popp and Almuth Schult – suffered just one defeat.

More recently, eleven consecutive victories, including a 6-0 victory over now dethroned champions FC Bayern Munich. On May 28 there is also a chance for a double – in the DFB Cup final against Turbine Potsdam. The only drop of bitterness is the semi-final of the Champions League, during which the “wolves” honorably withdrew from the affair after the 1-5 defeat against the great FC Barcelona in the second leg (2- 0).

At halftime everything was already clear

The match in Jena started with a shock moment for the VfL women: Popp had to be treated for a long time for a head injury, but then continued playing with a bandage. After that, events on the ground took the expected one-sided course. Facing a completely overwhelmed Jena, the league leaders were leading 2-0 after just a few minutes with goals from Pajor (8th) and Sveindís Jónsdóttir (10th).

After that, too, the only goal was for the hosts, who conceded the third goal in burlesque best fashion thanks to an own goal from Tina Kremlitschka (18th). At the latest after Felicitas Rauch’s 4-0 lead (25th), even the last skeptics should have been convinced of Wolfsburg’s women’s title. Lena Lattwein made it 5-0 before the break (38th).

VfL women don’t give up

Soft after reboot? Not with VfL. 53 seconds were played when the ball was in Jena’s net again: Jill Roord scored from 20 yards to make it 6-0. Popp increased the lead to 7-0 a little later (57th). It was only then that the guests took it easy and even allowed Julia Arnold to score a consolation goal (79th). But it was just a small, short act of mercy, Tabea Waßmuth (81st), Pauline Bremer (83rd) and Svenja Huth (85th) eventually hit double digits and secured VfL’s highest win of the season with their goals.
