Wolfsburg snapped Barcelonaโ€™s 45-game winning streak, downing the Spanish club 2-0 in the second leg of the Womenโ€™s Champions League semifinal Saturday.

Barcelona will advance to the Champions League final despite the loss, defeating Wolfsburg 5-3 on aggregate after a dominant 5-1 first-leg victory.

Barcelona was held scoreless in the opening 45 minutes, with the club struggling to execute in the final third. Wolfsburg capitalized on the slow start, coming out after the break, poised to take control of the match.

Tabea WaรŸmuth broke the deadlock in the 47th minute, slotting home a low shot from the top of the box after confusion on a Wolfsburg set piece.

Jill Roord doubled Wolfsburgโ€™s lead in the 59th minute, firing a long-range shot past the Barcelona keeper to put her side up 2-0.

Wolfsburg continued to push to make up their deficit on aggregate, but the 2-0 scoreline held until the final whistle.

The loss was bittersweet for Barcelona, as the match marks the first time the club has conceded more than one goal this season and the first time the team has failed to score since January 2020.

Barcelonaโ€™s win on aggregate advances the club to the Champions League final on May 21, where they will look to defend their 2021 European title.
