We relish this game. It’s what this job is about and that motivates the players more,” Flick added.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Bayern MunichBorussia DortmundBundesligaHansi FlickThiago Alcantara

However, despite having eight shots and six corners in the second half, Marquette was unable to get on the scoreboard and the game finished 1–0 Wisconsin.Speaking post-match, Trask acknowledged that at times the soccer on display wasn’t easy on the eyes, but sometimes you’ve got to dig deep and scrap for wins.“This is a part of college soccer. You can win by doing good things and you can win by battling,” Trask said. “You have to have both those parts if you’re going to be successful.”The games don’t get any easier for Wisconsin as they have a date with No. 5 Michigan State (8–0–2, 2–0 Big Ten) in East Lansing Sunday.Women’s soccer: Badgers look to capitalize this weekend against Rutgers, MarylandThe No. 22 University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (8–2–1, 2–1–1 Big Ten) heads home this weekend to play Rutgers Read…The highly ranked Michigan State side are yet to suffer defeat this season with eight wins and two draws next to their name.
