The Classic: A Women’s Football Rivalry
The women’s team has been involved in controversy since the first time the two teams met. Many argue that a match that has only been played since the 2019/20 season should not be considered a classic, excluding the first year when CD Tacon was absorbed by Real Madrid.
However, the significance of the meeting makes it inevitable to classify it as its male namesake. The Classic will be played next Sunday, the 19th, at 12:00 p.m. at the Lluís Company Olympic Stadium, as the Camp Nou is currently under renovation. Including the season as CD Tacon, it will be the fourteenth time both teams face each other.
With a balance of 13 victories for the culés, the leader of League F continues to be the top favorite to win the match. This is further reinforced by the presence of Alexia, who has scored 9 goals against the Madrid team and is playing as a false 9 this year. Here are the top scorers in the Clásicos, along with their market value and current score.
Top scorers of the ‘Clásicos’
