The Barça women have won big yet again, making it ten out ten in the league so far, with 57 goals for and just two conceded. There was only ever going to be one winner in today’s games at Deportivo Abanca in Abegondo.
Jenni Hermoso and Oshoala scored twice each and Aitana and Marta Torrejón got the others in a dominant display.
Hermoso opener was a header off a Melanie cross after 20 minutes. Just four minutes she was scoring again, and with another header, the ball provided this time by Mariona.
Her 109 league goals for Barça are a new club record, surpassing the 108 scored by Sonia Bermúdez.
Two crosses from Lieke Martens, on the day of her 100th game for Barça, led to two further goals before the break. And these two were headers too, from Oshoala and Aitana.
Oshoala volleyed in number five after the break, and after Depor grabbed a consolation, only the second Barça have conceded this season, Marta Torrejón quickly added the final goal of the day on 77 minutes.
Barça now take a fortnight’s break, and will be back on January 6 for a historic derby. Because the game is going to be played at the Camp Nou.
