Barcelona has become one of the top teams in women’s soccer. The team has dominated the Primera Division, winning every match. They are now in the finals of the Champions League. Barcelona’s victory in the league will be remembered as one of football’s most dominant campaigns. They won 26 of 26 games and scored 108 goals.
Barcelona, despite being knocked from the Copa de la Reina in the 16th round by Osasuna, could still end up with a triple of trophies to once again reach the summit of Europe. Barcelona is the most successful Spanish team in the UEFA Women’s Champions League since the club’s professionalization, in 2015.
Barcelona’s unrivalled dominance in women’s soccer is a clear indication that more work needs to be done to make the sport more competitive. However, they deserve enormous credit for their constant pursuit of perfection season after season. This sets the bar and propels the game forward both in quality and popularity.
Barcelona Femeni in Champions League
The club decided to professionalize its women’s section in the summer of 2015. Barcelona gave greater importance to competing in the UEFA Women’s Champions League during the following seasons. In the 2016-17 season, the club reached its Women’s Champions League semi-final and defeated Atletico Madrid Femenino at the 2017 Copa de la Reina.
The women’s team experienced significant changes in the summer of 2017. The club signed Lieke Martins, Toni Duggan and Elise Bussaglia amongst other big names from international football. Stanley Tools signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Barcelona for the 2018-19 season. This is the first shirt sponsor specifically for the women’s squad.
The club qualified to their first Champions League final of 2019 in Budapest, where they faced five-time Champions League champions Olympique Feminin. They defeated them by 4-1 and won their sixth Champions League title overall. Barcelona won their first UEFA Women’s Champions League after beating Chelsea 4-0. All four goals were scored within the first 35 minutes of the game. Barcelona became the very first club to win both the men’s and woman’s European football championships. This was the biggest margin of victory ever in a UEFA Women’s Champions League Final.
How many UCL Finals has Barcelona Femini played in?
FC Barcelona Femeni beat English champions Chelsea Women in the final of UEFA Women’s Champions League. This is the fourth time they have reached the finals. They will be the overwhelming favorites to win a second European championship. The final will be against Wolfsburg.
Barcelona will make its third consecutive appearance at the UCL Final, an achievement only Olympique lyonnais has achieved in previous years. They have done so twice. Barcelona is also boosted by the return to action of Alexia Putellas who was the Ballon d’Or-winning captain but missed the past nine months because of an ACL injury. The Spaniard is expected to be involved in the final, despite not coming off the bench in the second-leg against Chelsea.
