FC Barcelona Women v Sporting Huelva: Big win to edge closer to the top (5-1)
After the brilliant win over Rosengärd, Barça capitalise on leaders Atlético’s slip to move within just two points of the summit of the table
FC Barcelona Women moved within two points of leaders Atlético Madrid on Sunday after defeating Sporting Huelva 5-1 at the Miniestadi.
The side from the capital only managed to draw on the weekend, and Xavi Llorens’ team took full advantage from their rare slip-up.
Olga Garcia got things going after just eight minutes with a fine long-range strike before Mariona Caldentey doubled the side’s advantage on 19’. It was 3-0 at half-time as Patri Guijarro’s header gave Barça a comfortable cushion going into the break.
Still, Barça were in the mood for more. Vicky Losada made it 4-0 just two minutes after the restart, and despite a consolation from Anita Fernández, Jennifer Hermoso got her customary goal in injury-time to wrap up a great day’s work from the Catalans.
