More from Everything Barca
Lluis Cortes’ side has displayed a sensational display of their game this season. They have managed to win all 25 of their league games so far this season. The only missing feather to the femení’s cap this season is a silverware in Europe, which they have spectacularly failed to win in their last two seasons.
The second leg of Barcelona femeni
Paris Saint-Germain looked quite formidable after they beat the seven-time winners of the competition, Lyon, on away goals. Lyon has won the competition continuously for the last five seasons. The score was 1-1 between Barcelona and PSG after the first leg of the semi-finals.
A crowd of 1,000 was allowed at the Johan Cruyff stadium for the decisive second leg. Lieke Martens found the net early at eight minutes into the second leg. On the hour mark, Martens found the net twice from a Hansen’s cross to score a brace which helped her team to reach the anticipated finals of the competition.

On the other side of the bracket, Chelsea was able to defeat Bayern Munich in a dominating fashion, in which the aggregate score was 5-3 to Chelsea. Barcelona femení will be hoping to lift the UWCL trophy for the first time against Chelsea on May 16th.
What’s next for Barcelona femeni?
Neither Chelsea nor Barcelona have won the competition in the past. Chelsea can do a double this season as their men’s side are also in contention and can put Real Madrid behind to secure the final spot of this season’s Champions League.
Barcelona femeni is scheduled to face Sevilla for the quarter-finals of the Copa de la Reina. Unlike Chelsea, they are also leading their domestic league of the Primera Division by a strong margin. The UWCL final is looking to be a close contest between the two of the most dominating sides of Europe.
