Champions League: Eintracht women win at FC Rosengard

The Eintracht Frankfurt footballers started the group phase of the Champions League with a sense of success. Coach Niko Arnautis' team beat Swedish record champions FC Rosengard 2-1 (1-0).

In front of almost 1,000 spectators on the artificial turf of the Idrottsplats stadium in Malmö, captain Tanja Pawollek (25th minute) scored for the Bundesliga club after strong preparatory work from Nicole Anyomi and Barbara Dunst (84th).

The Frankfurters dominated the game in the first half and were able to extend their lead through Anyomi and Lara Prasnikar shortly before the break and after just under an hour. Hanna Andersson then hit the crossbar for Rosengard (78th) when the guests let up. Dunst ended the tremors with her goal, even if Olivia Schough reduced the score to 1:2 in stoppage time. A good three years after taking over the former European Cup winner 1. FFC Frankfurt, it was Eintracht's premiere in the group phase.

On November 22nd, the Frankfurt team will host defending champions FC Barcelona with Spanish world champions such as Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati and Salma Paralluelo for their first home game at Deutsche Bank Park. The third group opponent is Benfica Lisbon.

The German champions FC Bayern Munich will face AS Roma this Wednesday (6.45 p.m./DAZN and DAZN YouTube channel). This year's premier class finalist VfL Wolfsburg failed before the group games against Paris FC.
