Women’s Champions League: Bayern lose to FC Barcelona

Dhe footballers from Bayern Munich clearly missed out on a respectable win against FC Barcelona at the venerable Camp Nou. In front of 46,967 spectators, the team led by Lina Magull, Lea Schüller and Klara Bühl kept a clean sheet against the star ensemble from Spain for half-time on the third day of the Champions League group stage, but ultimately lost a well-deserved 0:3.

Geyse (47′), Aitana Bonmati (60′) and Claudia Pina (66′) scored for the Catalans, who moved ahead of Group D with the win on nine points and a goal difference of 16-1.

Barcelona were superior from the start even without the injured world footballer Alexia Putellas, after just under two minutes attacker Geyse failed free-standing to Maria Grohs in the Bayern goal. On the other hand, national player Bühl had the best, but also the only dangerous opportunity for the Germans after a counterattack. At full speed, the 21-year-old only hit the side netting (10th).

After the break, it was again less than two minutes before Geyse appeared free-standing in front of the Munich goal, this time she had no trouble. Bonmati and Pina followed up with a fantastic flick from 20 meters.

The second leg will take place on December 7th in Munich’s Allianz Arena. At the second appearance in the living room of Manuel Neuer and Co. after the quarter-finals against Paris St. Germain in March, Bavaria’s women’s record of 13,000 spectators at the time should be broken.
