Barça Women won the final of the Copa Catalunya with an excellent display at the Camp Municipal Joan Capdevila, beating Espanyol 7-0. The goals came from braces by Andonova, Duggan and Hamraoui, plus a final strike from Bárbara Latorre. This is the ninth time Barça Women have lifted the Copa Catalunya, and the fifth in succession.
High-scoring first half
Fran Sánchez' players enjoyed chances right from the get-go, and took just 11 minutes to open the scoring. Andonova made it 1-0 with a shot from inside the area, and 5 minutes later Toni Duggan doubled the advantage.
A series of opportunities followed, accompanied by goal number three on 25 minutes. Hamraoui scored for the first time in a Barça shirt, meeting a Mariona cross. Andonova completed her brace just before the half hour mark, swinging in a corner for an 'Olympic goal.'
Second half solidity
Three more goals went Barça's way after the restart, with Hamraoui striking after a ball had hit an opposition defender. A quick free kick in the 79th minute was met by Duggan for her second goal, and Bárbara Latorre rounded off the scoring 3 minutes from time, off a great pass from Mariona Caldentey.
The Copa Catalunya winners will start their Liga Iberdrola campaign in two weeks' time, debuting against Athletic Club away from home.
