Barça Women 5-0 Real Madrid Femenino: League champions!

Barça Women win the Clásico convincingly and are crowned Liga champion for the third time in a row and seventh in total

Goals galore in the Clásico and now Liga champions! Barça's 5-0 convincing win over Real Madrid saw them crowned Liga champions in stunning fashion, making it twenty four wins out of twenty four games and further adding to their unbelievable numbers this season.

The home side were hunting for goals straight from the kick-off and it wasn't long before Rolfö had the ball in the net after a superb Graham Hansen cross from the right, only for it to be ruled out for a very dubious offside decision. The crosses were raining in from both left and right, but the Real Madrid defence were proving resolute and dealt with the danger.

Alexia again proves pivotal

The pressure finally paid off when Alexia hit a right foot shot from the edge of the area, a Real Madrid defender stuck out a leg, wrong-footing Misa in the Madrid goal and Barça went 1-0 up (min. 42). The next goal came within two minutes, Alexia again with a right foot shot across the goal, this time after a superb ball over the top from Patri. A comfortable 2-0 lead at half-time.

Real Madrid applied more pressure after the break but Barça kept on creating chances, having another goal ruled out for offside. This time a free kick from the left from María Leon was headed home by Marta Torrejón, but a teammate had strayed behind the visitor's defence. The next goal was a cracker and basically sealed the result, Patri Guijarro rifling in a shot from the edge of the area on the 60th minute to make it 3-0 and crown her commanding performance in midfield.

Fervour for five

Barça just kept on attacking and it wasn't long before the fourth goal.  Graham Hansen - who had a busy game - crossed low across the box and Peter but the ball in her own net (4-0, min. 66). Despite a few Real Madrid counter-attacks, Barça kept attacking in the hunt for the fifth goal to complete the manita. Despite Misa's best efforts, Alexia and Jenni Hermoso combined, with the latter lifting a left foot shot into the net (5-0, min. 83).

A resounding Clásico win and Barça were crowned Liga champions with six games to go and an incredible 24 wins in 24 games. Groundbreaking! Força Barça!
