Jennifer Hermoso scored FC Barcelona's first and last goals to lead the Catalanas to a commanding 4–1 victory over BIIK Kazygurt at the Miniestadi on Wednesday night in the return leg of the UEFA Women's Champions League last 32. Barça go through to the last 16 with an aggregate score of 5–2 after drawing at one a week ago in Kazakhstan. It is the biggest European win in history for Xavi Lorens's team. 

Despite the 1–1 result in the first leg on 7 October, Barça were heavily favoured and put up a pair of early goals that turned out to be all they would need.  Jennifer opened the scoring on 11 minutes with a spectacular individual play and then Melanie doubled the lead just nine minutes later.

Marta Unzué displayed beautiful touch out in front and added Barça's third goal five minutes after the intermission. Jennifer got her double in the 65th to effectively bury BIIK Kazygurt.

Gabelia got one back for BIIK in the 90th minute, but by that time Barça had known for a while that they were moving on.
