Fortuna Hjørring 0-5 Barça: Into the quarterfinals!

Another wonderful display from Barça Women means that they will be in the quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive season, thanks to goals from Aitana (2), Mariona (p), Oshoala and Marta Torrejón

The match started quite evenly, with Fortuna's defence not allowing the Catalans to have any clear chances. However, Barça gradually eased themselves into the game and almost went ahead through Graham. Only a superb save by Johansen kept the scores goalless.

Consistent attacking play eventually got its reward as Crnogorcevic's cross was met by Aitana to make it 0-1 (min. 36). 

Absolute dominance

Aitana quickly doubled the lead after the break (0-2, min. 48) and within six minutes, Mariona effectively killed the game as a contest from the penalty spot (0-3, min. 54).

By this point, Barça's dominance was absolute, with countless chances to score for Lluis Cortés' side. Oshoala eventually added a fourth with 12 to play, and Marta Torrejón swept home the fifth on 85. The win ensures their presence, for the sixth successive season, in the quarterfinals of the UWCL.
