Wolfsburg 2-0 Barcelona (3-5 Agg)

Barcelona’s 48-game unbeaten run was brought to an end as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Wolfsburg in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. But the holders still progressed to the final thanks to an overall 5-3 aggregate victory.

Barcelona saw numerous first half chances to go begging, but really struggled in the second as Wolfsburg pressed high and caused the visitors all sorts of problems.

Wolfsburg were left to curse their 5-1 first leg defeat at Camp Nou which ultimately left them with too much to do in front of a bumper 22,000 crowd at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday evening.

Reigning European champions Barcelona will attempt to defend their crown against either PSG or Lyon at Juventus’ Allianz Stadium on 21 May.

Barcelona enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the first 45 and spent much of the opening period camped in the Wolfsburg half. Irene Paredes drew a save from Almuth Schult with a half chance from a corner, while Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic blazed over when she should have at least tested the Wolfsburg goalkeeper.
