FC Barcelona Women v Sporting Huelva: Last-minute heartbreak (1-1)
Barça were denied victory after conceding a goal in the closing stages of the match
FC Barcelona Women were denied victory against Sporting Club Huelva at Ciutat Esportiva after conceding a goal in the final minute of the match. Barça controlled the game for the large part and had the better opportunities of the two sides.
Despite being unable to break the deadlock in the first-half, Barça’s persistence paid off as Patri Guijarro’s header five minutes after the restart put the home side 1-0 ahead. But just as it looked as though Xavi Llorens’ team were heading for another victory, a last minute leveller for Sporting through Vero Napoli saw Barça walk away with two points less than they merited.
