Three more points for Lluís Cortés’ side takes them to 54, just three behind the leaders, Atlético Madrid (57 points).

Alexia Putellas, Martens, Mariona were the other goalscorers as the title-chasers won emphatically 4 nil.

Like Barca men, ladies were commanding in possession

The match began with both teams cancelling each other out on the pitch, however, little by little, the Blaugranes asserted their authority in possession. Two goals in two minutes (Alexia Putellas, min 15; Martens, min 17) handed them the advantage, and from that point, the visitors began to relax and play their natural game, Mariona adding a spectacular third (0-3, min 29).

The second half saw Oshoala debut for Barça, and she opened her goalscoring account just a few seconds after entering the field of play (0-4, min 63). For the remaining half hour, the Blaugranes were content with keeping the opposition at bay, with no further goals added.
