In the hushed atmosphere of a March evening at the Alfredo Di Stéfano, the women’s section of Real Madrid, which saw its first participation in the Champions League this year, sold its skin dearly against the Catalan ogre at the occasion of this quarter-final first leg of Women’s C1. During the first act, despite the (logical) territorial domination of FC Barcelona, ​​​​it was also Real who stung the strongest. This is how, even before the tenth minute of play, Claudia Zornoza put pressure on the Ballon d’Or Alexia Putellas, who lost the ball… Esther González took advantage of it, then she went to fix the defense of the Barça, before shifting to his left Olga Carmona, who then deceived Sandra Paños with a cross shot on the ground from the left (1-0, 8th). Stupor in Madrid, the young Spaniard has just scored her second goal in the competition on her… third shot. All against the defending club.
