Barça continue their perfect season with another victory. Goals from Rolfö (2), Salma Paralluelo (2) and Marta Torrejón handed Jonatan Giráldez's team a 5-1 win against Valencia in the league, victory number 22 this season in the domestic championship.
After 957 minutes without conceding in the league, Valencia's opening goal in the game prevented Barça from breaking a record that was set in the 2020/21 season when the team went 962 minutes without allowing the opposition to score.
Setback early on
After just 11 minutes Barça found themselves behind in the game for one of the few times this season. Maria Jiménez scored unmarked at the far post to give the visitors to the Estadi Johan Cruyff an early lead.
However, the blaugranes were soon back on level terms. Crnogorčević had an effort ruled out before Rolfö made it 1-1. Before half time, in injury time, Torrejón's strike meant Barça had a 2-1 advantage at the break.
Brace from Salma Paralluelo
The entrance of Paralluelo in the second half turned the game further in Barça's favour. The striker scored twice in six minutes, the second coming from an excellent pass from Aitana Bonmatí. Valencia keeper Enith Salón made several excellent saves to keep the score down before Rolfö added a fifth from the penalty spot to make the final score 5-1 to the blaugranes.
