The sweet hangover by the ranking of the Barça Women for the grand finale of the Champions it still lingers the day after. The emotions on the surface, the joy, the hugs and the dances have given way to the unanimous feeling that this year the long-awaited European title is closer than ever.
The players gave it their all on the field and at the after-party on the pitch in front of the 981 attendees in the stands of the Johan Cruyff Stadium. However, what was not seen on camera was even more exciting.
Most of the team had the support of their closest relatives in the stands. The mother of Mariona caldenteand, Maria Oliver, traveled from Mallorca to go to a new appointment to remember. Not one is usually lost. And the brothers of Leila Ouahabi, decisive with his assistance in the first goal to Lieke Mart
ens, they also accompanied her at all times. Precisely with his older brother, the Maresme defense began to give its first touches with the ball. Leila herself was grateful for the support of hers in her account of Instagram.
Patri Guijarro, the dance queen who was followed by all her companions to the rhythm of ‘Follow the leader', Not only marked the choreography of the celebration of the pass to the final but also had a beautiful gesture with his mother, Toñy Gutiérrez, on the occasion of Mother's Day by giving her a rose that she received, of course, dressed in the Barça kit. All support added. Both took a photo after the game at the Estadi as a souvenir of another unforgettable day.
The bottle of ratafía -the most traditional drink in Girona- with which Laia Codina broke into the press room during the appearance of the technician Lluís Cortés and Aitana Bonmayou was another of the details that has most attracted the attention of Barça fans. I was ready? Well, no, everything responded to an impromptu party where euphoria set the pace of events.
And without a doubt one of the most shocking images, recorded by Canal Esport 3 and that has gone viral on Tweetr, is that of Aitana in the final minutes of the match, after being replaced by Oshoala. The midfielder suffered a great deal by asking the referee for the time and could not help but kick the wall loudly, victim of nerves.
And it was not for less. Aitan
to I had been preparing this game all week, both physically and mentally, with rest, food and visualizing a vital duel to be up to the task. And boy was it. She and all of them continue to live the happiness of a very complicated and worked pass to the final. But now they want more and they are not going to stop. The dream lives on.
