The Barça women have started 2022 where they left off in 2021, by winning big. Very big. After putting seven goals past UD Granadilla they have now won all 16 of their league games to date.
And that was at La Palmera, one of the trickiest grounds to visit in the Liga Iberdrola and with a number of absences through Covid-19 and injury.
But the home side’s impressive start was quelled when Pisco put the ball in her own net after 14 minutes and then Graham quickly extended the lead.
The floodgates opened in the second half. Fridolina Rolfö was on the end of a potent counter attack no sooner had play recommenced, then Martens converted a cross from the same player and scored her second of the day after 69 minutes.
The goal of the day was banged in by Patri Guijarro from the edge of the area, and Oshoala celebrated her return after almost two months of injury by netting goal number seven.
