Barça Women 6–1 Deportivo: Tenth consecutive win

Barça Women 6–1 Deportivo: Tenth consecutive win

A Graham hat-trick and goals from Jenni, Mariona and Aitana eased the Blaugranes to their 10th win in a row

Deportivo Abanca were put to the sword by a Barça Women's side that never let go of the jugular. Right from the start the hosts were quickly into their stride, and it took until the 24th minute for them to translate their possession into goals. Graham opened the scoring with a brilliant individual move starting from the right side, the Norwegian taking on all-comers before firing an unstoppable shot past Misa.

Ten minutes later, the No.16 played in Jenni for Barça's second and then Mariona got in on the act thanks to a great assist from Alexia. Barça's current captain could have practically killed the game as a contest before the break, but her shot crashed against the crossbar.

Graham completes her first hat-trick

Graham needed only three minutes of the second half to complete her first hat-trick as a Barça player. Both came from pinpoint crosses from Falcón, but Barça weren't finished. On 54 minutes, Aitana made it six and that was the cue for Lieke Martens and Vicky Losada to join the fray, both receiving great ovations.

Abelleira scored a late consolation, but Barça's 10th win in a row sees them continue at the top of the table with 25 points, one more than Atlético Madrid. Their next game is on Saturday 30 (4.00pm CET) against Valencia.
