UWCL qualifier results

Paris FC vs Wolfsburg (3-3)

It was a thrilling match between the team that ousted Arsenal in the previous round and last season’s UWCL finalists. Wolfsburg took the lead early on in the fourth minute via Endemann, but Paris FC then took advantage of sloppy play and scored two goals in the eighth and 16th minute. Wolfsburg levelled again in the 30th minute via Popp, before Dufour in the 44th minute brought the lead back for Paris FC.

After the break, it was Wolfsburg who was looking for that equaliser and had difficulties finding it. However, they managed to level in the 73rd minute after Popp managed to score again. The 3-3 result means that Wolfsburg are slightly in the advantage going into the second leg of this match-up.

Freigang scored three times, while Anyomi and Reuteler scored the other two goals.
