Barcelona face VfL Wolfsburg in European final
June 3, 2023 - The UEFA Women’s Champions League final takes place between Spanish Primera Division champions Barcelona -- in their fourth final in five years -- and VfL Wolfsburg, who are targeting their third crown after victories in 2013 and 2014. The final takes places at the Philips Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Women’s football continues to thrive after the success of the European Championships and anticipation of the FIFA World Cup in July as Europe’s UEFA Women’s Champions League season reaches the final.
The 2022-23 UEFA Women’s Champions League is the 22nd season of Europe’s primary club football tournament.
Spanish team Barcelona -- competition top scorers with 37 goals -- conquered Europe for the first time in 2021, but suffered defeat to Lyon in the 2022 final. While Wolfsburg -- champions in 2013 and 2014 -- have surged into their sixth European final with dramatic 119th-minute strike to secure semi-final win over Arsenal.
The pair have met on five previous occasions, with Wolfsburg victorious in four matches -- no club has beaten Barcelona more times in Europe.
