>> Football Champions League Final: FC Barcelona – Wolfsburg, June 3, 2023, Eindhoven. The players of Barcelona are rejoicing in the victory.
Eindhoven (Netherlands) – Barcelona's soccer players dominated the Champions League for the second time. In the final in Eindhoven, they beat Wolfsburg 3:2, despite losing 0:2 at halftime. Patricia Guijarrová equalized shortly after the break, scoring twice in less than two minutes. The winning goal was scored in the 70th minute by Swedish striker Fridolina Rolfö, who also played for Wolfsburg in the past and was with them in the Champions League final three years ago.
Barcelona made up for last year's disappointment, when they lost in the final 1:3 to Lyon, who is the record holder of the competition with eight triumphs. The Catalan team followed up on the victory from 2021. Barcelona was in the final for the fourth time in the last five seasons.
Wolfsburg, who beat Slavia Prague 2-0 in the autumn group stage and drew 0-0 with them at home, attacked the third title in the Champions League after the successful years of 2013 and 2014. In the third minute, the best scorer of the competition, Polish Ewa Pajorová, sent the German team into the lead, and after half an hour, the experienced German striker Alexandra Poppová, the Olympic winner from Rio and the reigning European vice-champion, increased the game.
However, in the second half, the Barcelona players showed a great turnaround in the stormy atmosphere at the PSV stadium. The Champions League final was played in a sold-out stadium for the first time. UEFA announced more than two weeks before the match that all 34,100 tickets had been sold.
