FC Barcelona pulled a stunning comeback to beat Wolfsburg 3-2 on Saturday and win the Women’s Champions League trophy.

The Spanish champions trailed 2-0 at half-time before Patri Guijarro scored a brace in two minutes to level the scores. The equalizing goal inspired Barca to pile more pressure on Wolfsburg and they were eventually rewarded with 20 minutes left to play.

Fridolina Rolfo scored the goal that saw Barcelona clinch a second Women’s Champions League title in stunning fashion at Philips Stadion (Eindhoven). This was Barca’s fourth final in five seasons.

Speaking after his side pulled an incredible comeback against Wolfsburg, manager Jonatan Giraldez told DAZN that the personality they showed was important in the win.

“It’s an amazing feeling that I have right now. It’s difficult to explain with the exact words what I feel because it’s an important trophy for us. The way we did it is the most important thing because it’s not only talking about tactical positions and the physical conditions, sometimes the personality that we showed today is really important to win the game.” Sky Sports quotes Jonatan Giraldez.

How Barcelona Beat Wolfsburg 

After losing their crown to Lyon in last year’s final, Barcelona travelled to Eindhoven as favourites against a very strong Wolfsburg side.

Wolfsburg took the lead after just three minutes when Ewa Pajor robbed the ball off England defender Lucy Bronze to deliver the opener. Pajor had not played since April, taking surgery on her knee after the semi-final first-leg victory over England giants Chelsea.

Barcelona defender Paredes came close to equalizing but ended up sending a free header wide at the far post. This was after Mapi Leon had delivered a nice corner into the box. Caroline Graham Hansen also came close to equalizing for Barca but she failed to make solid contact on a cross from point-blank range.

Barcelona were made to pay for their missed chances a few minutes to the break when Wolfsburg took a 2-0 lead. Germany international Alexandra Popp outmuscled Leon off the ball and then set-up Pajor with a teasing cross. Popp then headed home from Pajor’s cross.

All of Wolfsburg’s good first-half work was undone in 109 seconds after the break as Patri Guijarro netted twice to level the scores. The 25-year-old Spain international first finished well from Graham Hansen’s cut-back before heading home Aitana Bonmati’s cross from the right.

Barcelona had lacked fluency in the first half but it was no surprise they found a way back into the game. Wolfsburg pushed forward in numbers to find the third goal but their efforts bore no fruit. Instead, things went Barca’s way with Frida Rolfo netting the winner in the 70th minute after some comical defending from Wolfsburg.
