The game at the Johan Cruyff Stadium was over in the first quarter hour, with Barça Women already 3-0 up by then. Lluís Cortés' side dominated possession from the first whistle and consistently found space to create chances. Jennifer Hermoso, Aitana, and Martens scored the first three goals, and the hosts just didn't stop until the break, by which time the score was a scarcely believable 8-0. Hermoso had completed a four-goal poker and Martens a hat-trick.
Jenni Hermoso's record
When the sixth goal went in, Barça Women's No.7 had set a new record. The Madrid striker has become the greatest ever scorer in the history of Barça Women. Her 124th goal as a Barça player meant that she overtook Sonia Bermúdez, but far from relaxing, however, Jennifer Hermoso scored again, her 125th goal for the club.
Andrea Falcón's reappearance
The Catalan's goal-scoring waned in the second half. Barça continued to have absolute control of the ball and the chances, whilst Santa Teresa struggled to put two passes together in a row. A lack of goals gave way to positivity for the return of Andrea Falcón. Nearly twelve months after the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee, she enjoyed some minutes on the pitch. Oshoala completed the rout late on. Barça Women remain unbeaten in the league and next Wednesday, December 9, they will debut in Europe against PSV (4.30pm CET).
