SGS Essen secured a place in the semi-finals of the DFB Cup against the Wolves from Wolfsburg (VfL Wolfsburg) with a 2:1 win against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, thanks to a convincing performance, especially in the first half in the large BayArena stadium. The Essen team, led by coach Markus Högner, followed the strategy of exerting pressure in the centre, which proved effective. Ramona Maier made it 1:0 early in the game with a spectacular overhead kick, and Laureta Elmazi extended the lead after a mistake by Bayer goalkeeper Charlotte Voll.

Bayer Leverkusen, coached by Robert de Pauw, found it difficult to hold their own against Essen’s aggressive and determined attacks. Although the team put in a stronger performance after the break thanks to tactical adjustments and personnel changes, it was not enough to turn the game around. Essen impressed with strong tackling, enthusiasm and effective offence, while Leverkusen struggled to control the game after falling behind. The hosts improved in the second half, but Essen’s defence stood firm to defend their lead and secure the win.

Despite Leverkusen’s efforts to get back into the game and Verena Wieder’s second-half equaliser, including an energetic final offensive, Essen held on for a 2-1 win and a place in the semi-finals.
