Barcelona

Last season, Barcelona clinched a historic treble by winning the league, Champions League and Copa de la Reina.

After already winning the Spanish Super Cup as well this term, they could yet go one better and do the quadruple.

Barcelona are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, in which they will play Real Madrid again, this time over two legs, and the quarter-finals of the cup, with a game against Real Sociedad to come next week.

The home leg against Real Madrid in the Champions League will be held at the 99,000-capacity Camp Nou.

Real Madrid only officially launched their women’s team in 2020 and while they are quickly improving, they have work to do to close the gap to Barcelona. Real Madrid are fifth on the table, 29 points behind Barcelona.

Alexia Putellas, the Spaniard who won the women’s Ballon d’Or in November, scored twice two minutes towards the end of the first half at the Johan Cruyff Stadium.

Patri Guijarro and Jenni Hermoso were then both on the scoresheet in the second half, either side of a Babett Peter own-goal as Barcelona clinched the title in style.
