There were 60,739 fans packed into Wanda Metropolitano Stadium for a match between Spanish heavyweights Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

The match would have been played at Atletico's training ground but with the demand for tickets so high, they were forced to move the match to the 68,000-capacity stadium. 

Tickets for the game were available for free to club members and for as little as €5 for the general public.

Matildas midfielder Alex Chidiac was on the bench for Atletico in this clash but was not substituted on. 

Barcelona took a 2-0 win with goals from Asisat Oshoala and England's Toni Duggan put them within three points of league leaders Atletico.

It smashed the previous record held by Athletic Bilbao when 48,121 attended their cup game against Atletico in January.

However it just failed to beat the outright attendance record for a women's game which was reached at the 1999 World Cup Final between the USA and China when 90,185 fans turned up at the Rose Bowl Stadium in California.
