Kundananji brace halts FC Barcelona’s 719-day unbeaten run

In a momentous victory for Madrid CFF, striker Rachael Kundananji exhibited her prowess by scoring two goals in the first half, leading her team to a remarkable 2-1 win over reigning champions Barcelona in the Liga F.

Kundananji initiated the scoring at the thirty-minute mark, capitalizing on a sublime long pass from Laura Dominguez to create space for herself. 

With composure and precision, she adeptly evaded the advancing goalkeeper, ultimately delivering a confident shot into the net.

Demonstrating her finesse once again, the Copper Queens forward extended Madrid’s advantage just seven minutes later. 

With a well-executed finish using her left foot, Kundananji converted a well-timed pass from Florencia Bosegundo into another goal.

Despite the efforts of Ballon d’Or holder Alexia Putellas, who managed to pull one goal back for Barcelona in the 64th minute, Madrid maintained their resilience and secured the victory, inflicting the first defeat upon Barcelona in 64 league matches.

Kundananji concludes the season as the second-highest goal scorer in the Spanish top flight, tallying an impressive total of 25 goals in 30 league matches. 

Alba Maria Redondo Ferrer of Levante clinches the top goal scorer title with 27 goals.

In the 83rd minute, Grace Chanda substituted for Kundananji, successfully seeing the remainder of the game through. This historic triumph propels Madrid CFF to their highest-ever finish in the club’s history, securing a commendable fifth place in the league standings.
