Patri Guijarro leads Barça

The Barça women’s team was clear about its objective and wanted to celebrate first place in Group A – after the tie between Benfica and Rosengard – with the fans that filled the Johan Cruyff Stadium. And he has achieved it with the same lineup that gave him the title in the Spanish Super Cup. Without variations, but also conditioned by the numerous absences due to injury.

And Barça came out to dominate, as they usually do, and create danger. In the 10th minute, Mariona Caldentey’s first chance, the reference in the attack. And in the 15th, Irene Paredes saved Eintracht’s goal almost on the line after one of the few Blaugrana defensive errors and the departure of goalkeeper Cata Coll. But from that moment on, more possession and more culé threat. And just after a double chance from Lucy Bronze and Mariona, Patri Guijarro broke the game in the 19th minute with a cross shot from outside the area that easily entered the long post of goalkeeper Stina Johannes (1-0) .

A possible penalty on Graham Hansen not signaled and the injury to the rival star, Géraldine Reuteler, marked the middle phase of the first half. And before the break, a chance for Paredes. Barça has been superior, applying very high pressure, attacking incessantly and generating a lot of danger.

Caroline Graham Hansen seals the match

And in the second half the same trend continued, but with a change of the German goalkeeper, who gave her place to Cara Bösl. And the Eintracht goalkeeper was the most notable at the start of the second half, with Aitana Bonmatí failing when the goal was called, as was Graham Hansen, also colliding with the Eintracht substitute goalkeeper. And although Lucy Bronze sent the ball to the post with a great header when she was acting as a surprise center forward, the score seemed stagnant.

Tanja Pawollek, Eintracht’s captain, also had to leave the field injured. Very bad luck in this match for the German team. And Barça, more subdued and failing more than usual, did not seem to encourage the spectators present at the Johan Cruyff either. Eintracht had its moments of danger, but Barça did not allow the tie. Esmee Brughts and Clàudia Pina came on as a refresher from the bench and helped make the final sprint. And Graham Hansen sealed the penalty in the 73rd minute with a shot from outside the area that touched the post before entering the back of the net (2-0).

The women’s Barça remains undefeated in Europe

And Bruna Vilamala, Marta Torrejón and Vicky López also played a few minutes in the final stretch of the game. Barça has its fifth victory in the group stage of the Champions League, a total with 15 points achieved, and remains undefeated in Europe. And he continues thinking about the quarterfinals, but now knowing that the Blaugrana will be first in the group no matter what happens.
