Bundesliga - step by step - sports
The Bayern women also convince in the 3-0 against the 1st FFC Frankfurt - and look forward to the Champions League.
The first home game in the new season of women's football Bundesliga was for Bayern once a groundbreaking importance: The first FFC Frankfurt was a guest, the German record champions and a team, the Bayern coach Jens Scheuer a role "at the top "trusted, as he had said before the game. At the top, that's exactly the place in the final classification, on which the Bayern wants to land after three second places in series after this season again.
And after winning their first game of the season against Freiburg, the Munich women took another small step in the direction of this goal: they deserved to win 3: 0 - after strikes from striker Lineth Beerensteyn (30./59.) And an own goal by Sandrine Mauron ( 64.). "I did not think it would be so clear before," said Scheuer. "We are doing really well now, against good opponents, so we want to continue, soon in the Champions League too."
The Bayern also started the game with the superiority of a title ambitious club. The ball ran safely through their own ranks, with increasing playing time they also sharpened the pace. Only: In the first half, the hosts rarely developed the means to surprise the stable Frankfurt coverage. The attacks were probably missing a player in the storm center, which creates by their physique spaces for their teammates - a function that could take over Emily Gielnik, 27, in the future. The 1.84-meter striker was presented on Friday as a new Bayern player, she comes from Melbourne Victory. For the Australian international, who was also present at the 2019 World Cup, but a mission came too early.
In the 30th minute, the Frankfurt women showed up but inattentive. After a long ball from Amanda Ilestedt Beerensteyn ran freely towards the penalty area, made a hook and hit a low shot to 1-0. It remained the only Munich goal opportunity in the first half. "We wanted to be defensive at first disciplined, because Frankfurt has extremely fast attackers," said Scheuer. "This requirement has been a great success for the team."
After the break, the Munich women combined from a safe, but also little demanded defensive fast through the midfield - and now again and again in the dangerous zones into it. Such an attack was also preceded by the second goal: Melanie Leupolz sent Linda Dallmann on the right wing, which fitted flat to Beerensteyn, the Dutch met free-standing to 2: 0. Frankfurter Mauron provided the final score with an unsuccessful return.
