FC Barcelona 3-0 Athletic Club: Victory in final home fixture

Women complete a season of home victories at the Estadi Johan Cruyff

After dropping their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw with Sevilla midweek, the Barça women were back at Estadi Johan Cruyff for the last time this season on Saturday to make it 15 wins out of 15 in home games.

Graham Hansen, Irene Paredes and Salma Paralluelo scored the goals with just one more Liga fixture, away to Madrid CFF, to go before the big one. The UWCL Final in Eindhoven against Wolfsburg on Lune 3.

Early dominance

All 45 minutes of the first half were a constant barrage on the visiting goals, but lady luck failed to put in an appearance and it ended scoreless. Marta Torrejón and Hansen both had excellent chances, while the Basques did nothing but defend until the final seconds of the half, when it took a brilliant Sandra Paños save to keep things tied at the break.

Here come the goals

The second half was the same script, but this time the shots did find the net. Having already had one shot cleared off the line, Hansen made no mistake shortly after with a fine angled finish to make it 1-0.

Six minutes later, Paredes floated the ball in from the corner and it stunned everyone by landing in the net.

And shortly before the final whistle, Paralluelo also scored from a corner to round off another winning day at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.
