Barcelona defeat Sporting Huelva to retain their hold on the Liga F title

Matchday 27 in Liga F pitted Barcelona against Sporting Huelva, a game where a win was all the Blaugrana needed to make the Liga F title theirs again.

And as expected, the champions didn’t disappoint. Despite fielding a completely different squad from the starting eleven used in the UWCL, Barcelona cleanly dispatched their matchday rivals and retained the title with a 3-0 victory in front of their home fans.

The Champions League finalists are now officially the champions of Spain with 4 games left to play.

First Half

Barcelona outplayed and outclassed their counterparts, who barely had any time on the ball.

From the get-go, Barcelona dominated play. Although, for most of the half, it was an “all bark, no bite” situation as the team failed to create clear goal-scoring chances.

However, the team was set on being champions, and nothing was going to change that. And they made their intentions known with a goal in the 39th minute.

Starting at center back on the day, Leia Codina was on point to turn in a volley into the back of the net. The goal came from a set piece, which Claudia Pina took and delivered a perfect cross into the box that fell at the feet of the goalscorer.

Barca then went into halftime with one goal.

Second Half

In a similar fashion to the first 45 minutes, the second half was completely dominated by Barcelona from start to finish. However, unlike the first half, this half saw Barcelona create more goal-scoring opportunities.

In the 63rd minute, Jana Fernandez scored Barcelona’s second goal of the match from 30 yards. After receiving the pass from Engen, the center-back fired a rocket of a shot past the Sporting goalkeeper to seal the title for Barcelona.

In the 73rd minute, Alexia Putellas was brought in to replace Claudia Pina. The midfielder was welcomed back on the pitch with rapturous shouts of admiration from Barcelona fans after spending almost ten months on the sidelines due to injury.

But the champions weren’t done yet, as Oshoala got another goal late in the 89th minute. Jana broke through the opposition backline in sublime fashion, not typical of a defender, and teed up Oshoala. The striker then toe-poked the ball and made sure the title was signed, sealed, and delivered for the Blaugrana.

The latest champions in town. Barcelona Femeni retain Liga F title for the fourth year in a row

Barcelona Femeni are league champions

On Sunday, April 30, 2023, FC Barcelona Femeni made history again as they bagged the Primera division title, Liga F, for the 8th time in their history.

A 3-0 win over Sporting Huelva sealed the title for the Catalan side. A title the side has been conveniently holding onto for the past three seasons will once again remain in their cabinet for the fourth year in a row.

Up to this point, Barcelona has won all their league games, scoring 108 goals and conceding just five. This outstanding record means they’ve now won 61 straight league games since losing 4-3 to Atletico in June 2021.

However, once again, the Blaugrana have been crowned league champions, thus, confirming their status as a powerhouse in female football.

Barcelona remains an impregnable fortress in the Spanish League. A dominant force that obliterates everything that stands in its way.

The newly crowned Spanish champions would be looking to replicate their domineering performance in the UEFA Women’s Champions League in Eindhoven. A tournament where they have been proving their dominance over the past couple of seasons, and will be appearing in a third consecutive final come June.

However, having been eliminated from the Copa de la Reina for fielding an ineligible player, the UWCL is the only competition left for the Spanish champions to make their mark this season. With the league title wrapped and placed in the bag, Barcelona will now turn its focus on the Champions League and hope to win their second title of the season.
