Atletico Madrid VS Barcelona Set RecordAttendance for Women’s Football

Atletico Madrid can now boast the highest ever attendance for a women’s club football match, with Las Rojiblancas’ clash against Barcelona on Sunday setting a new record of 60,739.

Atleti generally play at Estadio Cerro del Espino, a 3,376-seater ground which is shared with Segunda Division side CF Rayo Majadahonda, but were given the opportunity to use the Wanda Metropolitano for their top-of-the-table clash with Barca.

The two teams were just six points apart heading into the Primera División Femenina match up, with Fran Sánchez’s visitors chasing their table-topping hosts.

That point gap was reduced to three in front of the record crowd, however, with Asisat Oshoala netting the opener to take her tally to five goals in five games, while England international Toni Duggan took mere minutes to add a second after her late introduction from the bench.
