Is Barcelona's Women's Team The Best In History

Barcelona’s Women’s Team are coming off an impressive season. Only one defeat in 40 games, with 197 goals scored. With La Liga and the Super Cup already in the bag, they are in the hunt for the Copa de la Reina, where they are in the semi-finals and are preparing to defend their Champions League title; they are putting together a vintage team. But are they the best in history?

The final of the Barcelona’s Women’s Champions League is coming up, and it would be a good idea to place a bet and use Interbet bonus code to maximize your profit in case of winning.

There is no doubt that this team will be remembered for a long time; they are about to win another treble with only one defeat; that’s a historical fact. But let’s remember that their next rival in the Champions League final, Olympique Lyon won 5 Champions League titles in a row, signing a treble in 4 of them.

They are the biggest winners of European competition, with seven European titles to their name. In France, they are the absolute dominators. In their ranks, they have players like Ada Hegerberg who was already Ballon D Or for women in 2018, and they are one of the few teams in Europe that normally play their home games in a nearly full stadium, not a training field, a big stadium.

Apart from that, in 4 of these winning seasons. The Lionesses went undefeated in two seasons, i.e., the 2018-19, and 2019-20 seasons, without defeat. What’s more, it took 67 games for the team to go down again and still win the Champions League.

The French team is one of the most dominant in the history of the sport, and not only in Barcelona’s women’s football. One of the best men’s teams in football, Pep’s Barcelona, is a far cry from Lyon’s record. Guardiola’s side won the treble, but the following year they abdicated the Champions League.

Real Madrid, who won three Champions League titles in a row, did not match their success in the league or the cup and fell short of Lyon’s record. What Lyon’s Barcelona’s women’s team has achieved is overwhelming. There is no similar team in the history of the sport.

But the dominance of the French has been met with stiff competition. The Spanish side wants a place in history, and at the moment they are the best team in Europe. Lyon experienced a natural slump and fell from the world throne, something that the team captained by Alexia Putellas, currently the best player in the world, took advantage of it perfectly.

The Catalan club set to work replicating the Lyon model, with a bit of their own recipe, home-grown players, and the result is spectacular.

They recently broke the attendance record for a Barcelona’s women’s game. Nearly 100,000 people attended the Spanish derby in the Champions League quarter-finals, in what was a spectacular match.

Barcelona is looking to form its own dynasty to be considered the best Barcelona’s women’s club in history, but it is difficult considering that Lyon set the bar high and continues to play at a spectacular level.

Fate placed them in Turin, where the final of the Barcelona’s Women’s Champions League will be played. If the Catalans want to give an important blow on the table and show that they are ready to overthrow Lyon’s legacy, they have to beat them in the most important tournament in women’s football.

Lyon knows they can reclaim their hegemony by beating Barcelona’s women’s , so there is no doubt that an epic game awaits in Italy on 21 May. Two epoch-making teams face-off, who will take home the Champions League?
