European domestic club football returns this afternoon as the German FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga resumes following the Coronavirus pandemic.
The opening fixture of the weekend sees reigning champions VfL Wolfsburg take on struggling 1. FC Koln at the AOK-Stadion.
Stephan Lerch’s side are the current leaders of the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga with the She-Wolves holding an eight-point advantage over nearest challengers Bayern Munich.
VfL Wolfsburg could line-up with two players in their side who are familiar to fans of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. Former Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl has been an ever-present for the German club in the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga this season while defender Dominique Bloodworth could also feature for VfL Wolfsburg this afternoon 12 months on from lifting the Barclays FA Women’s Super League trophy with former club Arsenal.
The home side have won 15 of their 16 matches in the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga so far this season, the only blot on their copybook being a 1-1 draw with title rivals Bayern Munich at the AOK-Stadion back in November.
Visitors 1. FC Koln are second-bottom of the table after losing their last four matches. Willi Breuer’s side have conceded nine goals in their previous two FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga encounters. The Billy Goats could include former Birmingham City midfielder Isabelle Linden in their squad.
This afternoon’s fixture at the AOK-Stadion kicks-off at 1pm BST. The other FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga fixture of the day sees 1. FFC Frankfurt face SC Sand at 6.15pm BST.
