WELCOME TO THE ESTADIO ALFREDO DI STEFANO!!! The tiny stadium in the Real Madrid training facilities is the site of the first leg of the Women’s Champions League quarterfinal tie between the hosts and Barcelona, who come into this one as huge favorites to advance and defend their European crown. The second leg will be next week at a full Camp Nou, and Barça will be looking to take a big result back home. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

Matchday Thread Rules
We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:
Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.
Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
