The run continues. The blaugranes took a vital win over rivals Atlético Madrid thanks to goals from Patri Guijarro, Jennifer Hermoso and Lieke Martens as Barça Women remain unstoppable in the league. To add to the joy, Luis Cortés' side have set a new unbeaten record, not conceding in 892 minutes, a record for the team.
The contest started with a penalty for the visitors after a handball inside the penalty area by Marta Torrejón. However, goalkeeper Cata Coll made a spectacular save to deny former blaugrana Toni Duggan from the spot kick. Barça sparked themselves into life and there were chances for Aitana and Hermoso before Atlético keeper Peyraud-Magnin made a great save to prevent Alexia's chip from opening the scoring.
The blaugranes were dominant, however, and their reward finally came when Patri Guijarro put them ahead with a good finish from a pass from Graham Hansen on 31 minutes. Another penalty, this time in Barça's favour, allowed Jennifer Hermoso to make it 2-0 from the spot just three minutes later.
In the second half Barça retained control of the game and managed to keep Atlético at arm's length. During the game they reached a total of 892 minutes without conceding, a Club record. Coach Lluis Cortés brought on Leike Maertens and the Dutch international finished off another assist from Graham Hansen just six minutes before the end. Another win for Barça that makes it five out of five in the Iberdola league.
