Trailing 2-0 at halftime, the Spanish champions exhibited an impressive display of resilience. Within two minutes, Patri Guijarro scored twice, leveling the match and injecting renewed energy into the Barcelona side.
Capitalizing on their instant response in the second half, Barcelona intensified their attacking pressure and were duly rewarded.
With 20 minutes remaining, Fridolina Rolfo sealed the victory by thundering a shot into the roof of the net from close range.
Having relinquished their crown to Lyon in the previous year’s final, Barcelona arrived in Eindhoven as favorites against a formidable Wolfsburg team, vying for their third European title in a decade.
Wolfsburg began in splendid fashion, as Ewa Pajor, the tournament’s leading scorer, capitalized on a defensive error by England’s Lucy Bronze, who had recently returned from knee surgery, to score the opening goal.
Shortly thereafter, Alexandra Popp, a German international, converted a well-placed cross from Pajor with a clinical header, doubling Wolfsburg’s advantage.
Although Barcelona exhibited a lack of fluidity and patience in the first half, their resurgence came as no surprise.
Displaying the exceptional brand of football that propelled them to their fourth final in five seasons, they showcased their superiority.
Among the Barcelona players celebrating their victory was Keira Walsh, an English midfielder, who earned her first European title.
Furthermore, Lucy Bronze etched her name in history as the first Englishwoman to win the trophy with two different clubs, having previously won it three consecutive times with Lyon from 2018 to 2020.
