Atletico Madrid Ladies on Sunday fell to a 2-0 defeat to Barcelona as goals from Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala and Toni Duggan re-opened the title race at the packed Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
The encounter sets a new world record attendance for a women’s match between two club sides.
The result means second-place Barca close the gap on leaders Atletico to just three points with six matches remaining.
It was Oshoala‘s fifth goal in as much games in the Liga Iberdrola since her switch on loan from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian in January.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says his side have reached their mental “limit” after their top-four hopes were dented by Everton’s second-half resurgence.
