Barca Femení have produced the most dominant footballing campaign ever and accomplished the unthinkable.
Fc Barcelona Femení ended their remarkable domestic campaign with a win over Atlético de Madrid Femenino. Goals from Irene Paredes and Aitana Bonmati help them seal a 2-1 victory against the Madrid-based outlet. The defeat cost Atlético de Madrid Femenino their champions league spot as they fell to the 4th position in the league table, just one point behind Real Madrid Femenino.
Atlético de Madrid Femenino putting one back in the net to make the scoreline 2-1 just 4 minutes after Alexia Putellas missed a penalty, gave a glimmer of hope to the visitors, but Barca Femení kept their calm and composure until the last minute to clinch the all 3 points.
The stats of Fc Barcelona Femení in the league are simply exceptional. They won all the 30 games, scoring 148 goals and conceding only 11. The squad had many injury problems, but it never really affected their momentum. 31 different players featured for the team out of which 20 found the back of the net. Another astonishing stat for the Garnet and Blue.
They had won the league already with 6 games to spare but didn’t take their foot off the gas in the remaining games. They also broke the world record for attendance in women’s football twice this year and set the new record of 91,648, when they faced Wolfsburg in the first leg of their Uefa Women’s Champions League semifinal.
Even though their Laliga campaign has come to an end, they have some unfinished business in Uefa Women’s Champions League and Copa del Rey. Barca Femení will take on Olympique Lyonnais Féminin on May 21st in the Uefa Women’s Champions League Final and then 4 days later will play their arch-rivals Real Madrid Femenino in Copa del Rey semi-final.
If they manage to win both trophies, which looks utterly achievable given their current form, they would complete a second successive treble to end their historic campaign at an all-time high. Visca Barca.
