Barcelona Femení become the first team to win 50 consecutive league games
The Barcelona Femení made history by becoming the first football team to win 50 consecutive league games.
He achieved the unprecedented feat by beating Levante Las Planas 7-0 at the Estadi Johan Cruyff on Wednesday – the team have yet to lose at their stadium since it opened in 2019.
Nigeria international Asisat Oshoala scored a hat-trick, Ana-Maria Crnogorčević netted two while Vicky López and Mariona Caldentey each netted second-half goals as Barcelona cruised to an emphatic victory.
The Catalan club’s dominance dates back to June 2021 when they lost 4-3 away to Atlético Madrid.
Since then, the team have scored 247 goals – an average of just under five per game – and conceded just 19.
Under head coach Jonatan Giráldez, Barcelona won every league game last season and are currently unbeaten in their recent campaign – four points clear of the table after playing two fewer games.
Despite their brilliant league form, Barcelona have lost this season in the Women’s Champions League.
He was easily beaten in the group stage by German side Bayern Munich 3-1 in December, but the defeat did not impact his league form for the new year.
The team’s fluid football and array of talent drew record crowds.
In March 2022, history was made as 91,553 fans gathered at Camp Nou – Europe’s biggest football stadium – to watch the second leg of the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The attendance was the largest to ever watch a women’s game, and Barcelona certainly capitalized on the home support as they won 5-2 against rivals Madrid.
Barcelona are currently in a dispute with the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) over fielding a player seemingly ineligible for the Copa de la Reina this season.
He faces being kicked out of the tournament, according to reports, but says he will appeal the decision.
“FC Barcelona announces that the Club will continue to fight for the rights of the women’s team after it was sanctioned by the Competition Committee for fielding an ineligible formation, with an appeal to be presented in due course” , the club said in a statement. .
“If the sanction is not revoked on appeal, FC Barcelona will take all possible measures, as it is considered that the composition ended up being deemed ineligible due to technical details in this case.”
