5 Best Women’s Clubs In Europe Right Now

Women’s football is steadily on the rise and is gaining more ground and coverage with each passing day. Female footballers are also making the rounds and becoming as popular as their male counterparts.

This is due to improvements in the game and the high level of expertise currently exhibited by female footballers. Another aspect of women’s football that has improved is the level of competitiveness.

Just like in men’s football, female football clubs go shoulder-to-shoulder with each other both on the domestic and continental stage.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the five best women’s teams in Europe in 2021-22.

  • Juventus Women

Juventus are the most successful female club in Italy. The ladies in black and white continued their dominance by winning the domestic treble in the 2021-22 season.

They recorded 19 wins, two draws and a loss en-route to winning their fifth consecutive Serie A title. Le Bianconere also won the Coppa Italia and Supper Coppa Italiana trophies.

They also gave a good account of themselves in the UEFA Women’s Champions League. Juve finished second in their group above 2021 finalists Chelsea.

However, their continental journey came to an end in the quarter-finals after they were beaten 4-3 on aggregate by eventual winners Lyon.

  • Chelsea Women

The 2021-22 season was a good one for the Chelsea women’s team. Emma Hayes’ side dominated the domestic scene, but failed to replicate their form in Europe.

The Blues won their third consecutive league title and sixth overall. They also defended their FA Cup trophy, defeating Manchester City Women 3-2 in extra time at Wembley Stadium.

Their performances in Europe, though, were underwhelming. After reaching their first Champions League final in 2020-21, much was expected from the West Londoners.

However, they failed to make it to the knockout stage of the competition after finishing third in the group stage.

Samantha Kerr was the Blues’ best player of the season. The 28-year-old scored 29 goals across competitions. Kerr and Hayes were also named FA WSL player and manager of the season, respectively.

The two-time UEFA Women’s Champions League winners made it to the semi-finals of the competition, losing 5-3 on aggregate to Barcelona.

  • Barcelona Femeni

The outstanding performances of Barcelona Femeni in recent seasons have not dropped one bit. Each season, they only get better and better. The recently concluded season was one filled with new milestones for the Catalans.

Baulgranes retained their league title by recording a perfect season (30 wins in 30 matches). They scored 156 goals and conceded just 11 as they achieved a 100 percent record.

Barcelona Femeni also won the Super Copa de Espana and Copa de Reina to clinch a domestic treble.
