Villarreal 0-8 Barça: Another massive win for the women
Four wins out of four as the goals flow in on Wednesday evening
Barça have produced yet another amazing display in the Liga Iberdrola as they saw off Villarreal 8-0 to maintain their unstoppable start to the season.
The home side held out for a quarter of an hour, but then Martens powered in the first and Alexia doubled the lead shortly before the half hour mark. It was case of total blaugrana control, and Marta Torrejón was able to lot in a third off a fine Oshoala assist before the sides went in for the break.
Rather than slacken, Barça were even more intense after the restart, banging in another three goals in just ten minutes.
Aitana head in one, Alexia converted Graham’s assist and then Oshoala got her name on the scoresheet too, and made it two with ten minutes to go with an acrobatic finish off a cross from Martens, with the Dutch international rounding off an incredible performance with Barça’s eighth.
