Former Arsenal and Chelsea pair secure first-ever German title

Former Arsenal defender Dominique Bloodworth and former Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl have become German champions for the first time in their respective careers with current club VfL Wolfsburg having won the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga this afternoon.

The She-Wolves knew that victory against mid-table side SC Freiburg at the AOK Stadion would seal their fourth consecutive championship and Stephan Lerch’s side went on to ease to a 2-0 victory.

Defender Joelle Wedemeyer fired VfL Wolfsburg ahead 13 minutes before the break while Pernille Harder’s finish two minutes into the second period made sure of both the victory and the 2020 FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga title.

Former Barclays FA Women’s Super League winners Bloodworth and Lindahl were only named as substitutes for the match and were left unused. It was just the second game in which the former had failed to feature this season while goalkeeper Lindahl was an ever-present before losing her place to German Friederike Abt.

The victory over SC Freiburg has left VfL Wolfsburg eight points clear of nearest challengers Bayern Munich with just six points left to play for. The pair will meet in Munich on Matchday 21 on Sunday in what will pretty much be a dead rubber game other than the fact that the hosts may need one more victory to claim second place.
