Barcelona Femeni join men’s team in open-top bus title celebrations

Barcelona Femeni join men's team in open-top bus title celebrations

Barcelona Femeni were present alongside the men’s team during Monday’s open-top bus celebrations through the city, paying tribute to both sides winning their respective leagues at the end of what has been a fantastic season for the club as a whole.

The men have been leading the way in La Liga this season and sealed a first title since 2019 with Sunday’s 4-2 win over local rivals Espanyol in the city derby.

Real Madrid (twice) and Atletico Madrid have each won La Liga since Ernesto Valverde guided the Catalans to the Spanish title four years ago.

For the women, Liga F was wrapped up at the end of April, with Alexia Putellas returning to action off the bench from her long ACL recovery in the decisive game against Huelva.

Having sealed a fourth straight title, Barca Femeni actually dropped points in a game against Sevilla earlier this month. It was the first time they have failed to win a league match since June 2021, but their incredible record is still 91 wins from their last 93 Liga F fixtures.

An estimated 80,000 people turned out on the streets of Barcelona to greet the teams.

For the men, La Liga glory followed on from winning the Supercopa de Espana in January following a 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the final in Saudi Arabia.

But they will not be adding any further titles this season, having been knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Real in the semis – Los Blancos later went on to claim their first Copa since 2014. European hopes also came to an end with Europa League elimination against Manchester United in February.

Barcelona Femeni also didn’t have much luck in the Copa de la Reina, expelled from the competition this season due to fielding an ineligible player in their 9-0 win over Osasuna in the round of 16 – Geyse should have been serving a suspension picked up in last season’s edition.

But where Putellas and co. can go one better is Europe, with the Women’s Champions League final against Wolfsburg on the horizon at the start of June.
