The Primera Iberdrola Classic will also reach the Champions League. Barça and Atlético will play in the quarterfinals and fight for a spot in the 'semis'. The return will be in Barcelona and whoever passes will play against Wolfsburg or Glasgow City
This Friday has been the draw of the picture of the final phase of the UEFA Women's Champions League and this has offered a Classical in chambers. FC Barcelona and Athletic of Madrid will see the faces and will struggle by a place in the semifinals. The gone will be in Madrid the 24 or on 25 March, whereas the turn will be in Barcelona the 1 or on 2 April.
The one who win from among the two Spanish teams will have to win, in theory, to the German champion to play the big final of 24 May 2020. The Wolfsburgo will confront to the Glasgow City in fourth and part like clear favourite to happen to the semifinals. The German are beside the Olympique of Lyon the big favourite to win the League of Feminine Champions.
Although the group germano is an important obstacle, if the culés win to the rojiblancas, at least, will not have to play against the Lyon. The French go by the another side of the picture and will confront to the Bayern of Munich. The last crossing of fourth is the Arsenal-Paris Saint-Germain, in which the one who pass will play against the all-powerful Olympique.
The Barcelona splits with clear advantage in front of the Athletic, since this same campaign already surpassed him by a conclusive 6-1. The Barcelona lumbered with him a 'set' to the colchoneras and showed that, for the time being, have better team and more quality that they. In spite of everything, the Madrilenian always are an uncomfortable rival and the Barça will have to give it everything to happen of round.
In the First Iberdrola, the culés go first and aventajan to the rojiblancas in an alone point, 22 by 21. A Barcelona prick could give him the leadership to the Atleti anytime, but the barcelonistas are showing intractable, at least for now. The team is increasingly solid and besides has much more goal that the past course, after the return of Jenni Beautiful.
The Barça will explain in brief with Martens
For this eliminatory of fourth will be, if it does not happen at all rare, Lieke Martens. The Barcelona has not been able to have the Dutch in this start of campaign by injury, but the extreme already has begun to train with the group and his turn is increasingly next. The return of the Dutch will be a fantastic news for a team that, with her, Jenni, Oshoala or Hansen, would have to aspire to win this Champions.
