The VFL Wolfsburg footballers topped the Bundesliga table after beating SC Sand 2-1 in a catch-up game on Wednesday. A major win – because now comes the best game weekend. On Saturday (2pm, live on NDR and Magentasport), fifth-placed Hoffenheim will visit Wolfsburg, and on Friday evening, Bayern expect third-placed Eintracht Frankfurt to follow.
The leading pair lost points against both teams in the first half of the season. VfL lost 2-1 to Hoffenheim and Bayern 3-2 in Frankfurt. Will it be tough again or will even preliminary decisions be made? “Our job is to get to the limit of our performance in every game and we’ll see what happens in the end,” said VfL coach Tommy Strott. But: “We want to be there even if the championship is decided on the last match day. Most of the time, it’s not so well planned, so the games have to be accepted as they come. ” Broad one for that squad. We have made conscious changes against the sand as we have to step on the gas again on Saturday.“
Blomquist: “Coaching staff trust me”
Rebecca Blomquist also stepped on the gas in the coming weeks. He has scored five goals in six VfL competitive games since the winter break, Including all major winning goals against Sand. Sweden (a goal in the first half of the season) is more important to the women from Wolfsburg, there is a run – but it did not come by chance. “I really wanted to get better, and the new year started the same way. I feel good,” the international said. It also helps the coaching team around Strott to put a lot of faith in the offensive player. Blomquist: “I play more and get better at it.”
Blomkvist, who showed interest in several Scandinavian clubs during the winter, is still in contention for a place in the European Championship with Sweden. She was not considered for the Algarve Cup in February, which surprised Schrotz as well. She wants to return to the final international stage ahead of the big tournaments against Georgia and Ireland in April – if she continues to play confidently, she will not be able to overtake Sweden.
Blomqvist and Co. Hoffenheim is just the first of a large segment waiting for VfL. Between two quarter-final matches against Arsenal in the Champions League, they travel to Frankfurt on March 26 (1pm) and to Autostad for the Munich Team League Duel on April 3 (2pm).
