Expectations were high around the Camp Nou, on the eve of the first-ever Champions League classic between Barcelona and Real Madrid. “When we entered the stadium by bus, we saw the faces of all the people who had come to create history. There were too many guys, too many girls”, began Barca captain Alexia Putelas. From the streets of Barcelona to the stands at Camp Nou, the atmosphere did not disappoint: world attendance record for a women’s football match: 91,553 spectators. “I have no words, it’s been super magical,” Putelas said. “The arrival has been great, we were panicking”, said Aitana Bonmati; “I have lived to the fullest. We suffered at that time, trained at night, reached home in the morning… and now it is more than what I had dreamed of. It was impossible to dream. I hope this is just the beginning.”

The eventual Champions League champions Barcelona did not want to leave the Camp Nou. Azulgrana headed to the north goal and borrowed drums from fans. “When the match was over, people did not want to go home. They were cheering and singing. You told us to reach the final in Turin. We felt that connection”, said Alexia, winner of the last Ballon d’Or, one of the most animated with Drum. “It’s been a great day. We will remember this for the rest of our lives. The atmosphere has become brutal, impeccable. It is difficult to explain our feelings. It is difficult to do things better because of how things went”, said Barcelona coach Jonathan Giraldez. The azulgrana team has played 36 games in the season. He has conquered them all.

However, Real Madrid cast doubts on Barcelona. “It cost us dearly. We have a lot of personality. These experiences, which go down on the scoreboard, help you”, the Barca coach analyzed. Alexia praised Madrid’s work: “They have a good team and good players. This is the Champions League and there is a level, any team makes it difficult for you. It’s all very even.”

Real Madrid coach Alberto Toril recognized Barcelona’s superiority. “This is a team that has a long way to go and has six semi-finals in the Champions League. We just arrived”, said the white coach. And he added: “That my players don’t keep results. In the end you have to stick with positive things, which are many. We fought really well for several minutes, we made it difficult for them and that’s the way it is.”
