Bayern in the semifinal for the 2nd time, FC Rosengård – FC Bayern, 0-1

After a 3-0 win in the first leg, Bavarians also won the second leg against Rosengard. Lea Schüller was the only scorer of the night. FC Rosengård – FC Bayern, 0-1

Bayern did most of the work already in the first leg, when goals from Linda Dallmann, Klara Bühl and Lineth Beerensteyn sealed the win. But Rosengard still had hopes to overturn the result despite the minimum chances and a huge challenge ahead of them.

1st half

Both teams started carefully, focusing mainly on not letting the opponents any clear chances. But after the first ten minutes, Bayern took the initiative. Linda Dallmann was the one that tried first with a long-range shot. It lacked some power and Stephanie Labbe had no problems with it. Afterwards, Marina Hegering had two chances to make it 1-0, but just missed the target with a header and a volley shot. In the 22nd minute, the guests scored the opener. After a one-two with Dallmann, Caro Simon send the ball softly into the Rosengård penalty area, where Schüller was able to head in for the lead. With an away goal in the pocket, Bayern was comfortably in the lead with Rosengard having to score 5 goals to advance. Despite a mountain to climb, the hosts started to push. Olivia Schough, former Bayern player, tried with her left foot, but her effort was fired straight at Benkarth, who routinely dealt with it. Bayern doubled the lead right before the break, but the referee disallowed it since the ball was out of play beforehand.

2nd half

In a second half, we saw Bayern routinely managing the game, not letting hosts any clear opportunitites. The Swedish record champions still had chances to equalize. First, Karolina Lea Vilhjálmsdóttir cleared a dangerous Emma Berglund’s cross right in front of the goal. Later, Caroline Seger had the equalizer on the foot in stoppage time, but hesitated too much with a shot, allowing Bayern their 26th win in a row.

A comfortable performance from Bayern who had no troubles defending their lead from the first leg. The leading team of Frauen Bundesliga will play in the semi-final for the 2nd time in their history. They will face Chelsea, who beat Wolfsburg, for the spot in the big final.

Reactions

“We played a very good game again today. Especially in the first half, the goal was already in the air with one or two opportunities. After the goal, with Caro preparing and Lea finishing in striker style, we were already sure that we had secured our ticket to the semi-finals. I still have to compliment the team because they really wanted to win the game. We did a lot of changes and rotations, but every player gave 100% to secure the victory. That worked out impressively. I have to give them a big thumbs up. You can just tell: the team wants more and more and more… this is my team.” – Jens Scheuer, FC Bayern coach
