UWCL: Bremer send Wolfsburg to the final in the 119th minute

What a night in London in the second leg of Women’s Champions League semifinal. After the first match between Wolfsburg and Arsenal ended in 2-2 draw, also the match at Emirates finished with the same result, taking the game into extra-time, where Pauline Bremer scored the winner in the 119th minute.

The Gunners, which came back from two goal down in the first leg, scored an early goal via Stina Blackstenius in the 11th minute. But just before the break, Jill Roord scored an equalizer.

The Germans took the lead in the 58th minute after Alexandra Popp’s header following a corner. Jennifer Beattie responded in the same way, equalizing with a header in the 78th minute.

In the extra-time, Arsenal nearly won it in extra time when Frohms denied Lina Hurtig. At the opposite end, Jule Brand had robbed Wubben-Moy of the ball, passed to Pauline Bremer, who scored the winner and set the Wolves for the matchup against Barcelona in the big final.
