Barcelona Femeni Seal an Unforgettable 30 0 Perfect Season
The Barcelona Femeni's 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid on Sunday sealed an incredible season for the club. It was the first time a women's team had achieved the feat of a perfect league season. The team scored 148 goals and conceded just eleven. This averaged out to 4.93 goals per game. And the record-breaking Asisat Oshoala was the Golden Boot winner with a stunning tally of 107 goals. The record-breaking season came as the club's goalkeeper Melanie Serrano announced her retirement after her fifth hundred and seventeenth appearance.
Barcelona's 30 0 perfect season
The perfect season has been made possible thanks to a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday. The win sealed Barcelona Femeni's 30 0 perfect season‚ making them the first team in Primera Liga Iberdrola to do so. The team scored 148 goals and conceded only eleven. The feat has been regarded as a significant achievement for women's football in Spain. The club made history with two sold-out matches at the Camp Nou‚ setting a record for the most ever attendance for a women's soccer game. Asisat Oshoala won the Golden Boot‚ scoring 20 goals in 19 league matches - the first Nigerian player to win the award. The win puts Barcelona in a Champions League final against Lyon‚ who were undisputed champions of Europe for the past five years‚ but were knocked out by Paris Saint-Germain in the quarterfinals last year. The win means that Barcelona Femeni has now clinched the Primera Division title for the third time in a row. The team scored 159 goals and conceded only 11 in their 30-0 season. They are still on course to win the treble‚ and are likely to face Real Madrid in the Copa de la Reina semi-final on May 29. The team finished their season with maximum points‚ including three matches with Real Madrid. The team's perfect season continued as the players remained unfazed by the title. A deserved celebration was due to the Barcelona players' unrelenting effort. The victory secured the league trophy for Barcelona‚ who have now won the title 30 times. And with a win against Atletico‚ Barcelona could become the second crew in history to win two European trebles in a row.
Asisat Oshoala's Golden Boot
Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala has won the Golden Boot‚ the league's top prize‚ as she scored 20 goals in 19 league appearances. The 24-year-old also won the Africa Women's Player of the Year award four times. She helped Barcelona achieve an unprecedented 30 0 perfect season‚ scoring 159 goals and conceding only eleven. She will now play in the Champions League final against Lyon‚ who beat Barcelona in last year's quarterfinals. The Spanish side will then play Real Madrid in the Copa de la Reina semi-finals. Oshoala was pivotal to Barcelona's victory against Atletico. Her early goal was an undeserved penalty for Atletico‚ which was converted by Hermoso. Barcelona's front line is enviable‚ and their backline provides the perfect platform for their forwards. This season could be a contender for the league title and a Champions League trophy for the team. After joining Barcelona in January‚ Oshoala had only played seven times for her former team Dalian Quanjian F.C. She has played a full pre-season with the club since joining. She has always been a talented player‚ and she played for Arsenal W.F.C. and Liverpool F.C. Women before moving to China. Her skills are unquestionable‚ but she may not be a great women's player. The 30-game perfect season was completed on Sunday when Barcelona Femeni clinched their league title. Asisat Oshoala's Golden Boot helped the club secure the league trophy‚ becoming the first women's team to do so in the Primera Liga Iberdrola. The Super Falcons superstar was introduced as a substitute in the 63rd minute and could not add to her tally on the final game.
Asisat Oshoala's record-breaking season
Super Falcons captain Asisat Oshoala has signed a new contract with Barcelona Femeni‚ which will keep her at the club until the 2023-24 season. She is one of the most impressive female footballers in the world‚ scoring 80 goals in 101 games‚ and has also won the Pichichi and became the first African player to win the league Golden Boot. The record-breaking season was highlighted by a goal in the last minute that sealed the victory. The first leg ended 5-1 for Barcelona Femeni‚ but it didn't mean the team was done. In the second leg‚ Barcelona Femeni won 2-1 on aggregate. While Barcelona Femeni had an early lead‚ the visitors fought back and scored two goals through Tabea Wassmuth in the 47th minute. Despite the scoreline‚ Oshoala was substituted for Jenifer Hermoso in the 59th minute. Wolfsburg's other goal was made by Jill Roord in the 79th minute. In addition to her UEFA Champions League goal‚ Oshoala also has the most appearances for Barcelona Femeni this season. She has started 18 of the club's 34 matches‚ playing 1‚607 minutes. The Nigerian international has also made eight substitute appearances. Nevertheless‚ she has already become a Barcelona Femeni legend. She has won two league titles and two Supercopa Femenina. Among the goals scored by Nigerian international Asisat Oshoala this season for Barcelona Femeni are 18 from Lieke Martens. Herosolo's 18 goals for Barcelona Femeni were also the highest totals by any player this season. She is currently in the running for the title of Primera Iberdrola Pichichi. The 25-year-old Nigerian star spent most of her free time watching football matches. She is a fan of Luis Suarez and tries to mirror his role in the Barca Femeni side. She is meticulous about the smallest details. She even went as far as watching 20 videos of old Barcelona games. She says her dream is to marry a man who she admires.
Barca's pursuit of a second successive treble
Barcelona Femeni sealed an unprecedented 30 0-perfect season on Saturday with a 5-0 win over Atletico Madrid to secure their third successive Primera Division title. After beating Real Madrid 5-0 in the Clasico‚ the women's team completed the treble with the maximum points in the league. Irene Paredes and Aitana Bonmati scored the goals to secure a win over Atletico‚ who had previously finished the season third. The result meant that Atletico had to settle for third place and missed out on the Champions League. After an extraordinary run of unbeaten seasons‚ Barca were facing a difficult task. Their first leg Champions League final had been a loss‚ and the team had demanded more from their coach Lluis Cortes. However‚ after a convincing win in the semi-final the following season‚ they won the final in Gothenburg last year and are currently in the mix for a second successive treble. The Swiss international has played a crucial role for Barcelona. She has scored in the UWCL Final twice and is the leading scorer for Switzerland internationally. She is also quick‚ a defensive solid player‚ and has fought through the injury bug throughout her career. Her versatility has helped the team seal an unprecedented 30 0-0 perfect season in pursuit of a second successive treble. Last season‚ Barcelona won the Spanish Super Cup and a treble under Cortes. They also beat Lyon two years ago in the Champions League final. Despite these achievements‚ Giraldez still has room for improvement. The players understand his gentle chiding and appreciate the extensive tape sessions. They need to learn more from Giraldez in order to keep the club competitive. The women's team has been making headlines for some time. Their success in the women's league is a testament to their ability to win everything. Their recent history of reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League has only bolstered their confidence and determination. The team had to dig deep to pull off such a feat‚ and this performance will have them the favourites to claim the treble for the second successive time.
