When we look at both the men’s and women’s teams of Barcelona, we can find the best player if we compare both the teams. That player is Alexia Putellas. Barcelona Femeni is a better option in soccer betting when we compare them to the men’s team.
FC Barcelona Femeni is going through the best days as a team. It feels like they don’t fear any of their opponents in the league or European Championships. They are an unbeaten team right now. We can see their captain at the team’s helm, a loyal Barcelona player who guides them to success. She was a Barca follower from her childhood onwards. She even remembers her first visit to Camp Nou to watch Barcelona vs Espanyol with her grandfather. She considers captaining Barca as a privilege. She signed a new contract till 2024 in September 2021.
Putellas was in the Barcelona Academy for one in 2005, and she moved to Espanyol, where she spent four years. During that time in Espanyol, she was considered one of Spain’s best youngsters. She moved to Barcelona in 2012 and started to play for the first team. We can see that she is a player who joined Barca when the women’s team was growing as a team. At that time, the team was weak and could not compete against the other teams outside Spain.
In 2018, she was named the fourth captain of Barcelona Femeni. They played their first UWCL final that season. In the following season, she was named the second captain. It was one of the best seasons for her as she became the top scorer with 18 goals, and she was chosen to be in the UWCL Squad of the Season.
The following season, she was again the second captain of the team. But she captained the team for most of the matches as the first captain Vicky Losada was injured. In the 2020-21 season, Putellas and Barca went through the best days in their life. The team won the treble for the first time in history. Also, she was nominated for many individual awards.
She was named in the UWCL Squad of the Season and was nominated for UEFA Women’s Champions League Midfielder of the Season. She won that prestigious award in August 2021. She won the UEFA Women’s Player of the Year award and became the first Spaniard to win this award.
The 27-year-old midfielder has been sublime for the European champions. In guiding them to a first Champions League title and historic treble, she scored 27 goals and provided 19 assists. At the end of last November, Alexia Putellas became the third winner of the women’s Balond’Or for an outstanding season with Barcelona and Spain.
