FC Barcelona Women earned an important win in style over a direct league rival on Sunday, defeating Levante 4-0 at the Miniestadi.
Andressa Alves got the Catalans off to an ideal start after just ten minutes in what was the game’s first real chance from inside the penalty area.
From then on, Barça began to dominate as Mariona and Losada went mightily close to doubling the hosts’ lead.
It was finally 2-0 on 72 minutes through Bárbara and three minutes later it was 3-0 as the same player assisted Jenni Hermoso. And yet another followed minutes later, this Olga Garcia setting up Ange Koko who dribbled past the keeper before knocking the ball in for 4-0.
The victory leaves Barça just a point of the league leaders Atlético Madrid and takes them three clear of Levante in third.
