More than 20,000 spectators come to the stadium in Frankfurt for the start of the women's Bundesliga. FC Bayern is a guest at Eintracht Frankfurt, it is one of the most spectacular pairings in the league. But the game can't keep up with the general conditions: In the end, the goals are missing.
In front of a record crowd of 23,200 spectators and with a 0-0 draw between Eintracht Frankfurt and FC Bayern Munich, the women's Bundesliga started its 33rd season. 47 days after the European Championship final in England, national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg experienced an atmospheric start in Deutsche Bank Park, where the Eintracht men usually play.
With the national anthem and the honoring of the German vice European champions in the Bayern and Eintracht teams, there was a bit of an EM atmosphere at the beginning. In addition, Munich's international striker Lea Schüller was named "Soccer Player of the Year". As a new signing, English European champion Georgia Stanway immediately took on a central role in FC Bayern's midfield without setting any highlights until she was substituted at half-time.
The attacking trio with Schüller, Lina Magull and Klara Bühl had a hard time against the convincing Frankfurt women. After a mistake by Sjoeke Nüsken, Magull missed the huge opportunity to take the lead (48th). On the other side, Lara Prasnikar (67th) and Geraldine Reuteler (77th) failed to goalkeeper Maria-Luisa Grohs in a passionate and high-class game, but for a long time there were few goal chances.
