The women’s Bundesliga season is over. 90min takes a look back and takes a close look at every part of the team. Checking it out today: The full-back position.
Rauch has played 17 games and has earned the title of best full-back this season. The left-footed player is defensively very stable, technically gifted, offensively always dangerously involved and sets excellent standards. The 26-year-old has a whopping twelve scorer points (three goals, nine assists)!
No wonder that VfL tried to extend the contract with the ex-Potsdam player until 2025. At the European Championships in July, Rauch is considered a seed and must build on her performances in the VfL jersey if the DFB team wants to be successful in England.
Ten goals – and that for a defender! Admittedly, the versatile Rall was ordered into midfield several times by Jens Scheuer, but the record of the 28-year-old, who also managed to get three assists, is simply fantastic. In addition to her goal threat, the 1.80 meter tall Rottweiler impressed above all with her athleticism and her will to win, which Bayern sorely missed in the decisive duels against PSG and Wolfsburg.
Rall himself will also change enormously over the end of the season. In the Champions League first leg against Paris, she had to follow the first 60 minutes from the bench, in the second leg and in the league and cup duel against the women she was completely left out due to the corona – and therefore ends up just behind Felicitas Rauch in the rankings.
The fact that TSG missed out on third place and thus missed out on qualifying for the Champions League is certainly not due to Katharina Naschenweng’s performance. The Austrian was on the pitch in 21 games and always kept things running smoothly on her left side of defence. Seven scorer points (three goals, four assists) are impressive.
The 24-year-old has been active in Kraichgau since the summer of 2018 and has continued to develop since then. Initially, the former Grazer recommended himself to the U20s for the Bundesliga team before a cruciate ligament rupture put her out of action for a long time. Naschenweng fought back and has been part of coach Gabor Gallai’s permanent staff for two years. This season, the nimble left-footed player has taken another step forward and has undoubtedly played her way into the notebooks of even more prestigious clubs.
