Nou Camp: ‘Magical’ Champions League night for women’s football

FA Cup

Nou Camp Champions League

Barcelona captain Alex Putellas described playing in front of 91,553 fans at the Nou Camp as magical during their Champions League encounter against Real Madrid. The match marked the first appearance of the team at the iconic stadium. The team produced a scintillating display to run out 5-2 winners. They smashed the previous record crowd attendance of 60,739 for a women’s game. The game also broke the record of 90,195 set during the 1999 World Cup in the US.

“This has been utterly magical. When the match finished the fans simply didn’t want to go home, there was such a connection between them and us while we celebrated,” Barcelona captain Alex Puttelas said after their Champions League game at the Nou Camp. “I saw a lot of girls, children with that spark in their eyes. It’s amazing to be part of history.”

“A full Nou Camp and making history – immense,” goalkeeper Aitana Bonmati said. “We’ve recently been through some wonderful experiences, especially winning the Champions League. But maybe this was more special.”

“I told my players before the match that it wasn’t enough to simply qualify tonight. We had to put on a show for our fans – and we did,” Barcelona head coach Jonatan Giraldez said. “What a great day this has been! We’ll remember it all our lives. The match was magical. It’s complicated, though, to explain all the emotions you feel on a night like this.”

“Two super teams who wanted to compete, to attack and a huge crowd. Women’s football is unstoppable, it’s going to grow and grow,” Real Madrid head coach Alberto Toril said.
