Barça Women 3–2 Madrid CFF: Superb comeback

The Catalans turned the game around despite going behind twice

Barça had to come from behind twice in order to win the match against Madrid CFF at the Johan Cruyff Stadium, in front of 2,739 spectators.

Frantic start

The match started at a cracking pace, with two goals in the first two minutes of play. Priscila took advantage of Gemma's poor control to put the visitors ahead after just nine seconds, but a minute later, Barça equalized through Bruna.

There were several chances for both sides that followed, however, neither could find the net. Madrid took the lead again on 38 minutes through Ohale, meaning Barça would have to mount a second-half comeback.


Madrid's Sara Tui was sent off for a second yellow card offence in the second half, with Barça quick to get back on level terms thanks to a half volley from Marta Torrejón, (2-2, min. 64).

A few minutes later, Patri Guijarro's shot from distance saw Barça lead for the first time. Madrid tried to react, but the hosts held firm to get the three points.
