Barça Women 2–3 Recreativo Huelva: A stumble at the Miniestadi
The Andalusians scored three goals in just nine minutes to hand Barça a first defeat of the season in the League
Barça Women lost to Recreativo Huelva (2-3) on the 21st matchday of the Liga Iberdrola, in a game where they opened the scoring through Oshoala but were pegged back by three goals in nine minutes from the visitors.
Lluis Cortés' side took control of the game in the early stages, and it was no surprise when Oshoala opened the scoring on 16 minutes. Martens and Hamraoui came close as the hosts dominated, with Vicky Losada having a shot saved by goalkeeper Sara Serrat, and Andonova hitting the post direct from a corner.
It was an entirely different story after the break, Huelva scoring three goals in just nine minutes: Raquel (1-1, minute 58) after an error, Anita (1-2, minute 61 ) with a header, and Flor (1-3, minute 67) after a good counter attack.
Despite the setback, Barça Women tried to react. Once again Oshoala scored (2-3, minute 84), and gave the culers hope that an equaliser could be found. Fortune didn't favour them in the final few minutes, and the defeat broke a good streak of four consecutive wins.
