FOOTBALL – In a display of sheer dominance, FC Barcelona Femení clinched their tenth Copa de la Reina title, leaving no doubt about their supremacy. The final, held last night at Estadio La Romareda in Zaragoza, saw Barcelona decimate Real Sociedad with a staggering 8-0 victory.

Barcelona’s journey through the tournament was nothing short of spectacular. In the round of 16, they obliterated Fundación Albacete with a 6-0 away win. The quarter-finals saw an even more impressive performance as they crushed Sevilla 8-0 at home. Moving into the semi-finals, Barcelona faced Athletic Club, winning both legs and conceding only one goal to secure a 5-1 aggregate victory.

First half

The final against Real Sociedad was a masterclass in football excellence. The first goal came just five minutes into the match when Ona Batlle found the net. Salma Paralluelo doubled the lead eight minutes later, assisted by Mariona Caldentey. Caroline Graham Hansen then made it 3-0 at the 19-minute mark, with Paralluelo providing the assist. Hansen scored her second goal seven minutes later, and Batlle added another in the 33rd minute. By halftime, Barcelona had a commanding 5-0 lead.

Second half

The second half continued in the same vein, with Caldentey scoring three minutes after the restart, assisted by Paralluelo. Claudia Pina added a seventh goal in the 52nd minute, with Caldentey once again providing the assist after a VAR review confirmed the goal. Caldentey then capped off the scoring in the 58th minute, bringing the tally to 8-0.

Real Sociedad were utterly overwhelmed, unable to mount any significant challenge against Barcelona’s relentless attack. The match concluded with only one minute of stoppage time, sealing an emphatic victory for FC Barcelona Femení.

Most successful Spanish women´s team

Domestically, FC Barcelona Femení stands as the most successful Spanish women’s team, boasting nine league titles, ten Copas de la Reina, four Supercopas, and ten Copas Catalunyas. Since the club’s professionalisation in 2015, Barcelona has firmly established itself as Spain’s dominant women’s football team and has become a powerhouse in European football. They are the most successful Spanish team in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, having won the prestigious tournament in 2021 and 2023. Their first Champions League title in 2021 marked a historic achievement, making Barcelona the first (and only) Spanish women’s team to complete a continental treble by winning the Primera Division, Copa de la Reina, and the UEFA Women’s Champions League in the 2020/21 season.

Champions League Final

As they bask in their Copa de la Reina victory, Barcelona now turns their attention to next weekend’s Champions League Final, where they will face Lyon in what promises to be another thrilling encounter. With their current form, FC Barcelona Femení looks poised to continue their winning streak and further cement their legacy in women’s football.
