Santa Teresa 0-3 FC Barcelona: Comfortable win in Badajoz
Bárbara Latorre (2) and Alexia Putellas get the goals in a dominant display from the women in Extremadura
The Barça women dominated from start to finish on Saturday afternoon against Santa Teresa, and two goals from Bárbara Latorre and another from Alexia Putellas ensured a convincing win in the Liga Femenina Iberdrola.
It took half an hour to break the deadlock, a fine team effort started by Putellas with a terrific through ball to Melani Serrano, with Latorre finishing things off.
The home side, from Badajoz in Extremadura, never caused any real trouble until after the break, but the well-organised Barça defence made sure the danger was kept to the bare minimum.
Barça weren’t creating many chances of their own either, but extended their league with a stunning set piece that caught the opposition totally by surprise, with Putellas putting the ball in the net.
It was full steam, ahead from then on, and a splendid strike from Latorre off a Lieke Martens assist put the game to bed.
Thanks to the win, Barça now top the league, but Atlético Madrid have yet to play – their trip to Athletic Clu Bilbao is on Sunday.
