Oshoala set for maiden Women's El Clasico as Barcelona face 'Real Madrid' in Spain

The striker will become the first female African to play in the Spanish rivalry between the famous clubs.

Asisat Oshoala is eyeing to make history as she is set to feature in the maiden Women's El Clasico as Barcelona take on Tacon in a Liga Iberdrola clash on Saturday.

The encounter scheduled for Estadi Johan Cruyff will see 2019 Uefa Champions Leaguefinalist Barcelona face-off with newly-promoted CD Tacon, who were recently taken over by Real Madrid.

With its name and branding set to be adopted in 2020, Real Madrid who had no women's side will technically rekindle the men's rivalry as they battle the four-time title winners for the first time.

Tacon [Real Mardid] boosted their ranks with the acquisition of Swedish duo Kosovare Asllani and Sofia Jakobsson, Brazil's Thaisa and Nigerian-born England international Chioma Ubogagu.


Barcelona will rely on over 30-years of top-flight experience plus quality signings, including 2017 Best Fifa Women’s Player Lieke Martens and 2015 BBC Women's Footballer of the Year Oshoala.

For Oshoala, it will be a dream come true to become the first African to play in the maiden Spanish women's El Clasico after securing a permanent deal with the Catalans this summer.

Having celebrated her first silverware in Spainin August, the three-time African Women's Footballer of the Year will aim to continue where she left during pre-season against Tacon.

Even though the match is not likely to be rated as the biggest women's football rivalry yet, with the dominance of Barcelona and defending champions Atletico Madrid, it's a start of things to come.

Heading into a debut top-flight outing, Tacon will face a mountainous task, beginning at Barcelona.

And the Nigeria international, who just returned from leading her country to the Olympic qualifying third round, will be keen to replicate her red-hot pre-season form with eight goals in five games.

So, what is El Classico in women's football?

Is it Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid or is it Barcelona vs Real Madrid?


Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are the two biggest teams in Spanish women's football. They have dominated the league in the past few seasons. Atletico won the league last season and Barcelona came second. They played a record breaking match at the Wanda Metropolitano last season and it set a new world record attendance for women's club football.


However, El Classico in men's football is Barcelona vs Real Madrid and Real have just bought a small team called Tacon. Tacon have just been promoted to the first division and they are going to play Barcelona today in the first game of the season.


Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid fans have been arguing over what the real Classico is, Barcelona vs Atletico or Barcelona vs Tacon?


(Note: When the Real Madrid fan in the first screnshot says Farce or Farca, he means Barca and when he says Pathetic he means Atletico).

The Johan Cruyff Mini Stadium has a capacity of 6,000. They had sold 4,000 tickets by 9am today. The only spaces left are behind the goals.

Tacon has just been promoted to the first division and they've also just been bought over by Real Madrid. Sandra Panos (Barcelona's goalkeeper) says that you can't call the match El Classico yet. She says that Tacon will have to earn that tag.


Let's see how this goes.

Just like with the main man of their more illustrious compatriots, all the glory begins and ends with club. I certainly donot want to mention names but is the Catalan brand just a Bermuda Triangle.

Yes.

CD Tacon was founded in 2014 and gained promotion to the Primera Liga Iberdrola earlier this year (last season).

Real Madrid took over the club in June this year and the club will be renamed Real Madrid in June next year.

Technically, Real Madrid women's team does not exist yet. What exists is CD Tacon (owned by Real Madrid). Real Madrid women's team will start next year when the name and logo are changed.
