FC Barcelona just can’t stop winning, and today’s 3-0 win at Atlético Madrid is further evidence that they are a cut above the rest in the Liga Iberdrola. With goals from Oshoala, Aitana and Martens, and goalkeeper Sandra Paños celebrating her 200th appearance, this was another sublime display from the unbeaten leaders.
With Atlético defending well, the opening minutes were tightly contested. Both sides had hit the woodwork before Oshoala pounced on a rebound to put here side ahead with ten minutes of a first half remaining in which Barça had had plenty of chances to have been leading by more.
Barça really started piling on the pressure after the restart, with Alexia Putellas getting three of the best chances and extraordinarily not managing to convert any of them. Instead it was down to Aitana Bonmatí to finally get the second goal that Barça more than deserved, and for Lieke Martens to top things off with a third just three minutes later.
