Barcelona comes back from a 2-0 deficit to win their second Champions League title.
Barcelona won their second Women’s Champions League title after coming from behind to defeat German powerhouse Wolfsburg.
The Spanish champions trailed 2-0 at the break but Patri Guijarro’s two-minute brace equalized.
Barcelona stepped up the pressure in the second half, fueled by their immediate response, and were eventually rewarded.
Fridolina Rolfo scored with 20 minutes remaining, slamming it into the roof of the net from close range.
After losing to Lyon in last year’s final, Barcelona went into Eindhoven as favorites against a very good Wolfsburg side looking for their third European title in ten years.
Wolfsburg got off to a flying start when competition top scorer Ewa Pajor robbed England defender Lucy Bronze, who was returning from knee surgery in April, and drove in the opening goal.
Pajor then set up Germany international Alexandra Popp with a delightful cross, and the striker made no mistake as she headed in Wolfsburg’s second.
Barcelona lacked rhythm and patience in the first half, but it was no surprise that they rebounded, demonstrating the brilliance of game that had allowed them reach their fourth final in five seasons.
Keira Walsh of England won her maiden European title with Barcelona, while Bronze became the first English woman to win the trophy with two different clubs after winning it three consecutive times with former club Lyon between 2018 and 2020.
