Barcelona’s women’s team has suffered their defeat after two years in the domestic league by their rival club Real Madrid CFF. This has also ended their 64-match unbeaten streak as Alexia Putellas’s goal was not enough for the team to keep on their streak.
The Catalan club has already won the 2022/23 league title with a 10 points lead from the second-position team Real Madrid. But the club this time can’t call them ‘unbeatable’ as they lost an away game against Real Madrid CFF. The score at the end of 90 minutes was 2-1 where the key player of Barcelona Alexia Putellas scored a goal in the 64th minute but didn’t help the team to continue their streak.
Barcelona completed the 2021/22 season without losing a single game. Before the loss against Madrid, the club had to face a draw against Sevilla last week on Wednesday. The club after winning all 30 matches last season went on an undefeated streak of five consecutive matches before facing Madrid.
Alexia Putellas was able to score a goal against the rivals after having injury concerns for a year. However, Barcelona’s attention should not be on their first loss this season but on the Champions League Final against Wolfsburg on June 3.

She’s young and, best of all, is passionate about football and understands it very well, which is not something every player has. She has so much quality, sees things before others, and executes everything with pace and style.”
