Barcelona broke the attendance record for women’s football after a crowd of 91,553 watched them progress to the Champions League semi-finals by defeating rivals Real Madrid.

3-1 from the first leg and roared on by a partisan Nou Camp, Barca won 5-2 and 8-3 on aggregate that night to set up a round of 16 match against either Arsenal or Wolfsburg.

The highest attendance ever for a women’s club match came in 2019, when 60,739 people watched Barcelona beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 away at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Wednesday night’s crowds at Europe’s largest stadium also eclipsed a women’s international attendance record set when 80,203 fans watched the United States win Olympic gold in London 2012 by beating Japan 2nd at Wembley :1 defeated.

Real briefly threatened to spoil the party after Olga Carmona’s penalty and a lovely strike from Claudia Zornoza put them 2-1 ahead after Mapi Leon’s early opener on the evening.

But Barcelona shouldn’t be denied the right to brag about El Clasico on a historic night.

Second-half goals from Aitana Bonmati, Claudia Pina, Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas and Caroline Hansen sent them through easily.

They will discover their semi-final opponents on Thursday when 2007 winners Arsenal travel to the Volkswagen Arena to face off in a 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg after last week’s first leg.
