Barcelona Women vs Rosengard Women Match Analysis & Prediction
21/12/2022 11:00 pm
With a spot in the Women’s Champions League quarter-finals already secured, Barcelona Women will be looking to seal topspot in their group when they face Rosengard Women on Wednesday.
While the Swedish side cannot reach the knockout rounds, they will be aiming to claim their first point of the competition after losing all five of their group matches.
Barcelona are currently top of their group by virtue of their head-to-head record with Bayern Munich, but there is still work to do if they are to seal pole position.
Jonatan Giraldez’s side began the competition with a comfortable 9-0 victory over Benfica, before they claimed wins over Rosengard and Bayern.
Although they were able to cruise to a 3-0 victory over Bayern at Camp Nou, the Catalan giants suffered their first defeat of the season when they were beaten 3-1 by the German side in the reverse fixture.
Barcelona will secure top spot if they better Bayern’s result, and with their last competitive home defeat taking place in February 2019, Barcelona will certainly have the belief that they can continue their impressive home record by claiming a win on Wednesday.
While Barca will be determined to clinch top spot, Rosengard only have pride to play for after failing to pick up a point in any of their five group matches.
Rosengard gave up a narrow lead to lose 2-1 to Bayern in their opening group match, while they were beaten 4-1 at home to Barcelona on matchday two.
The Swedish side were beaten by a narrow 1-0 scoreline against Benfica, before the Portuguese champions came from behind to beat Rosengard 3-1 in the reverse fixture.
They may have been competitive in their two encounters with Benfica, but they were beaten by Bayer last week, with goals from Tainara, Sydney Lohmann, Georgia Stanway and Julia Landenberger condemning Rosengard to a disappointing 4-0 defeat.
Including qualifying, Rosengard have won just one of their 11 Champions League matches, and they will be well aware that they will face another tough test when they face Barcelona, who have not lost a home game in the competition since March 2018.
