Atleti, damn in the League Classics: he has not won since 2016

first_imgBarça has also dominated their clashes against Atleti in the last seasons of the First Iberdrola. Last year Atlético fell defeated against the Catalans in the two league duels (2-1 and 0-2), being the only two defeats of Madrid in a course in which they lifted the First Iberdrola trophy for the third consecutive time. The penultimate rojiblanca defeat in a Classic was especially painful. Barça won 2-1 in a very special match at the Wanda Metropolitano, in which the world record for assistance at the level of women’s football clubs was broken. However, it was no less cruel 6-1 of the first round in this course, in which Barça was a steamroller in Johan Cruyff. It should be noted that in the cup tournament, Atlético eliminated Barça last year in the semifinals of the Copa de la Reina, tournament in which he also won in the final of 2016, being the other way around in 2017 and 2018, with two consecutive Barça titles. In the League, Atleti has recent dominance in terms of titles, after adding his third followed in the previous season. Barça also reigned in women’s football, adding more consecutive titles than Atleti, with four from 2011 to 2015. In between, Athletic won the League in 2016. Atlético arrives at the Classic this Saturday (12: 00h) with the great challenge to end the league curse against Barça. The Catalan team is the great executioner of the rojiblancas, who have not celebrated a victory in the League against the Blaugranas since December 11, 2016, when he won 2-1 at Cerro del Espino, with goals from Marta Corredera and Sonia Bermúdez. If we take into account the balance of the last ten years we find that the domain is for the Catalan team. A total of twenty-six Classics have been played in these ten years, divided into twenty of the League and six of the Copa de la Reina. Of them, Barça has emerged victorious in thirteen occasions against the five in which the victory has been rojiblanca, remaining eight draws remaining. last_img
