Alexia was asked about taking the record off Jenni after the game and admitted she was a bit surprised to hear she was now top of the pile.
“I really didn’t remember,” she told DAZN. “It is a privilege and an honor to be able to surpass my partner Jenni.”
The win made it five straight victories for Barca Femeni this season to ensure the defending champions stay top of the pile with a 100% record so far in the 2023-24 season.
