Barcelona and Wolfsburg faced at the PSV stadium in Eindhoven, where the entire capacity of the sports arena was filled. A total of 35,119 people gathered to enjoy this football battle, which featured the two best teams in the Women's Champions League this season.

The culé team was looking for its second title in this competition, while the German team took to the field with the intention of winning their third Women's Champions League. Around 4:00 pm the ball rolled in the stadium that was inaugurated on December 12, 1910 and achieved its current capacity through renovations in 1995 and 2000. In the first part of the game, the German team took the lead thanks to the scores of Ewa Pajor and Alexandra Popp, players who managed to materialize their chances, unlike the Spanish team that disturbed the rival goal several times but without effectiveness.

Already in the second half of the commitment, the Catalan team recovered mentally and with offensive volume, they put the German team in their own area. With mobility, they managed to break the lines so that Patri Guijarro, 25, scored the two goals that allowed him to dream of a new title in this important European competition. Around the 70th minute, the Swedish Fridolina Rolfo, achieved the longed-for goal with which Barcelona lifted its second Women's Champions League. The first was achieved in the 2020-2021 season.

Data to take into account

Rolfo, who was the author of the goal that gave the victory and the title to the Spanish team, is international with the Swiss National Team. With his national team he won the silver medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games and the bronze medal at the 2019 World Cup.

Another fact to take into account is that once again the PSV stadium hosted an important and definitive match, which stole the eyes of lovers of this sport. He had already done so in the 1978 UEFA Cup, in the second leg of the 1988 UEFA Super Cup and in three other Euro 2000 matches.

This is the second Women's Champions League achieved by the Spanish team, which little by little puts a sports project in the sphere of women's football with players who are empowered to be protagonists in the World Cup that will be played in Australia and New Zealand this year .
