Champions of the League and Europe, Barcelona will look for the treble in Madrid. He has already taken the first step: they beat Madrid CFF in the first semifinal of the Copa de la Reina. And he did it with the stamp of the whole season: he thrashed (4-0). Lluís Cortés’s girls don’t care about the Champions League (they defeated Chelsea, the English champion, 4-0 in the final), the League (they add 139 goals in favor in 28 games) or the Cup. pulse fierce, merciless with the rival, as if competing with his most recent past. This Thursday, with an audience in the stands in Butarque, it was suffered by a competitive Madrid CFF, intense from the start, but which ran out of gas in the face of the physical and footballing power of the Catalans.
After winning the first Champions League in history for a Spanish team in Gothenburg against Chelsea, Barcelona traveled to Leganés without Caroline Graham Hansen (injured) and with Hermoso in cotton. However, without their two franchise strikers, Barça did not lose a goal. A flyer appeared, Alexia Putellas. But no one was surprised. The Catalan opened and closed the scoreboard. He already has 17 goals in the season and was placed as the second top scorer, behind Hermoso (30). Strong in the areas, safe with the ball, the Barça team found themselves before a fierce Madrid team, who only lowered their arms when Mariona sang 3-0.
Not even when Bruna scored 2-0 after passing through the dressing rooms, the Madrid team surrendered to the European champions. Madrid CFF, seventh in the classification in the Iberdrola League, had won the ticket to the semifinal of the Copa de la Reina after beating Real Madrid in the derby in the semifinals. Barça will play the second Cup final of the season. In March he won against Logroño in last season’s edition, which had been delayed by the pandemic. The Barça club, top winner of the League (six), will seek its eighth Copa de la Reina against the winner of this Thursday’s duel between Atlético de Madrid and Levante (20.00).
