Six games and 18 points. The perfect start to the season continued at the Estadi Johan Cruyff on Saturday with a 5-1 victory over a Real Sociedad side that was still in this game until the final quarter hour, when Barça well and truly put things to bed.
The Basques were a very solid outfit indeed, and it took some doing for Leila to finally put Barça ahead just past the quarter hour, but Nahikari levelled after 23 minutes – the first goal Barça had conceded for an incredible (record-breaking) 962 minutes. However, following a great run by Mariona, which ended with Nuria putting the ball in her own net, Barça would be back in front in time for the interval.
Real Sociedad kept battling. The sides were deadlocked and further goals started look unlikely until Alexia finally found the net on 76 minutes.
The goal broke the game. Barça were now in clear command and Marta Torrejón pounced on a rebound to make it four before Mariona converted a lovely one-two with Graham to set up the definitive 5-1.
Club football now takes a break for a week of international fixtures.
