Barcelona come back from 2-0 down to win Women’s Champions League final thriller

After losing last year’s UEFA Women’s Champions League final to Lyon, Barcelona redeemed themselves with a thrilling 3-2 comeback victory vs. Wolfsburg on Saturday to claim their second-ever UWCL crown.

The Barcelona players must of thought they were having déjá vu of last year’s final when they once again conceded early goals. Last time against Lyon the Catalan club got scored on in the sixth and 23rd minute.

On Saturday Wolfsburg scored in the third and 37th minute.

Barcelona vs Wolfsburg UWCL highlights

Ewa Pajor set the tone for the record 33,147 in attendance with a laser of a shot that Barcelona goalkeeper Sandra Paños couldn’t keep out.

Pajor wasn’t done there and provided a perfect assist in the 37th minute for Alexandra Popp. Talk about putting it on a plate.

Pajor won the Golden Boot for the tournament with nine goals.

At halftime the Bundesliga runners-up held a 2-0 lead and looked in control of the game.

Barcelona manager Jonatan Giráldez must have given a legendary speech at the break because his players came out in the second half on fire. Less than three minutes into the second half Patricia Guijarro scored to get her side back in the game.

Guijarro would find the back of the net again in the 50th minute to level the game and undo Wolfsburg’s clinical first half in the span of five minutes.

The comeback was completed in the 70th minute after a disaster at the back for Wolfsburg. An attempted clearance hit off another Wolfsburg defender and gifted Barcelona the game-winning goal. Fridolina Rolfö was there to clean up the Wolfsburg mess.

Barcelona held onto the one-goal lead and Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas got to lift the trophy.

The UWCL title was an exclamation point to a season that saw Barcelona win the Spanish league with a 108 goal difference, claim the Supercopa and lose only one game in the Champions League.
