Barça were clinical against Rayo / VÍCTOR SALGADO - FCB

FC Barcelona Women cruised to a 4-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday at home to continue their push for the league title.

Even on the back of a physically demanding Champions League quarter-final draw against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek, Xavi Llorens’ side were the dominant force throughout the game.

Following Olga Garcia’s interception high up the field, Alexia Putellas was on hand to give Barça the lead after just three minutes.

Jenni Hermoso, the side’s leading scorer, doubled Barca’s advantage just before the break from the penalty spot.

The home side continued the second half as they ended the first; Ane Bergara’s fine cross from the right found Jenni, who made no mistake with the header to make it 3-0 on 51 minutes.

Bárbara Latorre added her name to the scoresheet late on with a composed finish following an assist from Mariona as Barça remain hot on the heels of leaders Athletic Club, who are just one point ahead of the Catalans with nine matches left.
