Barcelona showed its superiority to Tacon on Saturday, when last season's Champions League finalist crushed the visitor 9-1 in the opening round of Spain's women's league. Spain forward Jennifer Hermoso led Barcelona with a hat trick.
Barcelona said 5,413 people attended the match, which was not played at Camp Nou but at its much smaller Johan Cruyff stadium with a capacity for 6,000. Tacon will use this season as a transition period with its players using Madrid's training center for practices and matches.
Madrid is one of the few top European clubs not to have a women's side. Madrid's club members will vote on Sept. 15 to approve the takeover of Tacon proposed by its board.
