At 12.00pm CEST on Sunday (live on BarçaTV+) the Estadi Johan Cruyff is the venue as Barça look to build on a 1-1 draw in the first leg and qualify for the final for the second time
Two seasons after qualifying for the Women’s Champions League Final for the first time ever, FC Barcelona are just 90 minutes away from doing it again.
In 2018/19, it was Bayern Munich who they beat in dramatic fashion, this time they face Paris St Germain, curiously enough the same club that eliminated Barça from the men’s tournament earlier this season. The women have the chance to ‘avenge’ that result, and in doing so have a second crack at winning the tournament for the first time ever. Two years ago, they lost to Olympique Lyonnais.
Following the 1-1 draw in the French capital, the ball is very much in Barça’s court. But PSG are a formidable side. Indeed, it was them who defeated Lyon in the quarter finals, preventing their compatriots from what would have been an incredible sixth European crown in a row.
Whoever wins this game will be meeting either Chelsea or Bayern Munich in the final, to be played at the Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg on May 16.
María León and Andrea Pereira are both one booking away from suspension and would miss out on a hypothetical final if they get carded again.
Meanwhile, Jenni Hermoso has been battling to get over an ankle injury in time for the game.
Fans in the stadium
Speaking ahead of the game, Barça coach Lluís Cortés said “we are able to compete with anyone, and of course that includes PSG. If we get things right, we can win this. We have to watch them on the counter attack and be ready to cut off their quick transitions … We have to go out there and play out game, and be fully confident in ourselves and in the team as a whole.”
Patri Guijarro added that "our stadium is like a fortress. Having fans is going to give us that little bit of extra energy and motivation.”
1,000 supporters will be allowed into the ground for the game.
“For me and the club it will be very special to get through this round and play in the final for just the second time in Barça history.”
