Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala has has expressed delight after Barcelona Ladies were crowned champions of the Iberdrola League for 2019/20, Completesports.com reports.
In a meeting attended by Board of Directors and Delegate Commission of the Royal Spanish Football Federation on Friday, they ratified their proposal made to the Commission of Territorial Presidents last Wednesday, for all non-professional competitions to be declared concluded in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the impossibility of playing out the last eight sets of fixtures due to the lack of safety guarantees for all parties involved, the RFEF declared the Primera Iberdrola (Spanish women’s top flight) and Reto Iberdrola seasons over.
And Barcelona who topped the table before the interruption, were declared winners and will be joined by second-placed Atlético Madrid in the 2020/21 Champions League.
Reacting to being crowned champions Oshoala wrote on her verified Twitter handle: “21 games played, 19 won, 2 draws , 0 defeat , 86 goals for, 6 goals against. Top of the league since game day 3.
“I’m just gonna say we have the best team @FCBfemeni , congratulations my queens , ever working technical crew , fans all around the world. WE MADE IT ! CHAMPIONS 19/20.”
Having played 21 games, Barcelona were runaway leaders with 19 wins, two draws and no defeats, a spectacular goal difference of 86-6 and a nine-point lead on second placed Atlético.
Another decision reached is that there will be no relegation from the top division, but Santa Teresa and Eibar will be promoted from the second, meaning there will be 18 top flight teams in the 2020/21 season.
