Excessive punishment for Xavi Llorens’ players, who lost 8-1 in a charity match against the European Cup runner-up, FFC Frankfurt. FC Barcelona’s Women’s A team took to the soggy pitch in front of 1,200 spectators this morning and were able to put up a fight for the opening 30 minutes but the experienced Germans pinned Barça back with two early goals. Bretigne notched a brace for her side thanks to assists from Schmidt and Peter.

At the start of the second half, Sonia Bermúdez pulled a goal back for Barça’s Women’s team, but FFC Frankfurt smashed all hopes of a comeback with four goals in five minutes.

It all happened from the 66th minute to the 70th, after Xavi Llorens subbed in most of his bench, Garafrekes, Ana-María, Schmidt and Simone Laudehr put the game beyond reach of the visiting side.
