2. Olympique Lyonnais

3. VFL Wolfsburg

This is the most dominant team in the women’s Bundesliga. They have won the title six times since the club was founded in 2003. Currently, they are the defending champions with a winning streak running for four seasons. They also have two Champions’ League wins (2013 and 2014) and appeared in the finals a record of five times.

4. Bayern Munich

The German side has not had as great fortunes as its men’s counterpart, but it is still a force in the country and in Europe. Going into October 2021, they occupy the top position in the Frauen-Bundesliga.

Three league wins in the bag and a 2016 Champions’ League semi-final appearance is the team’s major achievements.

5. Chelsea FC Women

Chelsea’s recent surge in form happens to be for both men’s and women’s teams. While the men are the current champions of Europe, the ladies fell short of glory as they lost the final to Barcelona. They also have three FA women’s Super League (FA WSL) wins to their name.
