BK Hacken, a Swedish team, made an impressive comeback to beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the UEFA Women’s Champions League. After a tough 2-2 draw against Chelsea in their last game, Real Madrid traveled to Sweden with intentions of making a strong impression. Nevertheless, Hacken came out as the winners in the end.
Signe Bruun from Real Madrid scored an early goal by swiftly reacting to a rebound from Hacken’s goalkeeper Jennifer Miley Falk, who had deflected a shot onto the post. Real Madrid gained an early advantage when Bruun scored in the ninth minute.
Hacken pushed forward in the second half and equalized just before the 60-minute mark. Rosa Kafaji unleashed a strong shot from outside the penalty area, leaving Real Madrid’s defense in chaos.
As the game went on, Real Madrid’s defense became more and more disorganized. Hacken took advantage of this and went ahead in the 76th minute. Katariina Kosola found room on the edge of the box and skillfully curled a remarkable left-footed shot into the top corner. Hacken has now accumulated six points from two matches, giving them a five-point advantage over Real Madrid. On Thursday, Chelsea will take on Paris FC.
In a different game, Bayern Munich achieved their inaugural victory in Group C with a hard-earned 1-0 win against Paris Saint-Germain. Following a 2-2 draw against Roma, Bayern made the trip to the French capital and successfully clinched all three points.
Despite PSG’s control over the ball, they were unable to break through Bayern’s solid defense. On the 21st minute, the German team seized the advantage as Glodis Viggosdottir elevated herself to connect with Klara Buehl’s skillfully executed free-kick. Viggosdottir cleverly directed the ball towards the goal, allowing her teammate Magdalena Eriksson, who plays in the defensive position, to swiftly score from a short distance.
With this victory, Bayern’s total points in the competition now stand at four, having played two matches, while PSG, on the other hand, have yet to secure any points.
