It was an impressive Sunday for the Barça women / FCB - MIGUEL RUIZ

The men’s team defeated Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, and on Sunday it was the turn of the women to do likewise. It’s never easy to get three points at Vallecas but Xavi Llorens’s side followed up their impressive 4-1 midweek win against Biik Kazygurt with a fine performance to go second in the First Division, level on 16 points with Real Sociedad, Atlético Madrid and Athletic Club.

It was former Rayo player Miriam who scored the opener on the end of a fine assist from Alexia Putellas. That lead was extended by Marta Torrejón after the break, but Rayo pulled one back ten minutes later. The home side surged forwards for the remainder of the match but to no avail and Barça ended up celebrating three impressive points.
