Wolfsburg grounded out a 1-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday to reach the Women's Champions League final for a fifth time.

Sweden forward Fridolina Rolfo put the Germans ahead against the run of the play in the 58th minute, firing in from close range as Barca, beaten finalist last year, failed to clear the danger.

Barca had 16 attempts on goal but only once managed to test Wolfsburg keeper Friederike Abt, who saved a header from Nigerian forward Asisat Oshoala in the first half which appeared to deflect off the hand of Wolfsburg defender Kathrin Hendrich, but the Spanish side's appeals for a penalty were ignored.

Oshoala headed narrowly over the bar soon after Rolfo's goal while Spain internationals Mariona Caldentey and Jennifer Hermoso also missed the target.

Wolfsburg saw the game out to book its place in the final on August 30 against either holder Olympique Lyonnais or Paris Saint-Germain, who meet on Wednesday.
