253: Huge WSL news, Levante's vital victory and Louise Quinn interview
The OneFootball podcast returns once again to take a look at women’s football across Europe. This week Angelina Kelly is joined by Her Football Hub's Drew Diamond and Megan Hughes. First up it's the Primera Iberdrola, and despite Barcelona sitting pretty at the top of the table with a nine-point lead, things are really heating up in the race for the two other Champions League spots. Over the weekend Real Madrid lost out on solidifying their position in third place after suffering a defeat at the hands of Levante, who have had a great season so far. Over in the Women's Super League, Arsenal got an important win over Manchester United in a dramatic game as both teams compete in the race for the third spot in the league. In addition there was reaction to the historic broadcast rights deal in England that was announced this week, which means that from next season WSL games will be shown live across the BBC and Sky. Then to Germany where there were some big games in the DFB Pokal including a surprisingly subdued victory for Bayern Munich and wins for Wolfsburg, Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt. And finally instead of a hot topic this week, Angelina spoke to Fiorentina and Ireland centre-back Louise Quinn to talk about her impressive career that has seen her play in Sweden, Ireland, England and now Italy, how she has found living in Florence, and the struggles that female footballers can sometimes face.
