Union Berlin assistant coach Marie-Louise Eta has now also made Champions League history. The 32-year-old became the first woman on the coaching staff for Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Braga in the men’s premier class. “Congratulations, Marie-Louise,” congratulated the European Football Association UEFA on its social networks.

In the 1-1 draw against Augsburg last Saturday, Eta became the first female assistant coach to join the coaching staff in a Bundesliga match. After working under interim coach Marko Grote, new head coach Nenad Bjelica took her into his coaching team. (dpa/lch)
