Ghana's No. 1

Penalty gives Wolfsburg narrow win over PSG

Published on: 22 March 2023

Wolfsburg have not lost a match in the Women's Champions League this season

Two-time champions Wolfsburg came away with a narrow victory over Paris St-Germain who had a player sent off in the first leg of their Women's Champions League quarter-final.

Elisa de Almeida was cautioned for dissent in the first half before being shown a second yellow card when she was penalised for handball in the box.

Following a VAR review, Wolfsburg were awarded a penalty which Dominique Janssen dispatched in the second half.

The second leg is played next Thursday.

De Almeida blocked Lena Oberdorf's goal-bound header with her arm in the 61st minute and it ultimately proved costly as Wolfsburg carry an advantage back to Germany.

Less than 10 minutes earlier, PSG were awarded a penalty when Marina Hegering was deemed to have fouled Sakina Karchaoui but English referee Rebecca Welch overturned the decision after viewing the VAR pitchside monitor.

It capped off a frustrating evening for PSG, who had plenty of first-half opportunities - Kadidiatou Diani was not able to take advantage on several occasions.

Ramona Bachmann was denied by the outstretched leg of Wolfsburg goalkeeper Merle Frohms, while the competition's top scorer Ewa Pajor could not pounce on a mistake by PSG's Sarah Bouhaddi at the other end.

Wolfsburg remain unbeaten in the competition this season while PSG are bidding to win the Champions League for the first time having been runners-up twice.
