On Sunday, May 16, a historical and unprecedented event was experienced in Spanish women’s football. Barcelona FC were proclaimed champions of the 2020/2021 Champions League in the women’s category by four goals to nil against Chelsea. It was not the first time that the Catalan team reached the final, but it was the first time that they had won the title of best football team on the old continent.
37 seconds were enough to sentence the final
Lluís Cortés’s team sentenced the final against Chelsea in just 37 seconds. An error by a player of the English team on their own goal put the Catalans on the scoreboard. Minutes later, in the 14th game of the first half, Jennifer Hermoso was appeased by Leupolz and the referee determined a penalty. The person in charge of shooting from eleven meters was, how could it be otherwise, Alexia Putellas. After two goals in just a few minutes, the game was very difficult for Chealsea.
They had not yet recovered from the second goal when Aitana Bonmatí, after an excellent combination and supreme quality, scored the third goal for Barcelona FC in minute 20. The fourth and last goal of the match came in minute 36 thanks to a great goal from Graham Hansen. Chelsea’s comeback was already impossible against an explosive Barcelona, with great technique, mental strength, absolute control of the game and hope to lift the trophy.
Aitana Bonmatí, MVP of the final
The Catalan Aitana Bonmatí was chosen MVP of the final. For her part, her teammate Jennifer Hermoso celebrates the Pichichi title with England’s Fran Kirby.
The female Barça conquers the Champions League and becomes a legend of the star sport in Europe. Historic day for Barcelona and Spanish women’s football. Barcelona professionalized women’s sport in 2015. Lluís Cortés’s team has also been proclaimed the winner of LaLiga 2020/2021. In the case of winning the Copa de la Reina, he would get the treble. The first joy of the Laporta.
