Barcelona Femeni defeated Sporting Huelva 4-0 as the Catalan giants returned to winning ways following their draw against Benfica in the Champions League. With a Copa de la Reina game to play in 3 days, the champions fielded a heavily rotated squad with key players given a deserved rest after their fatigue-driven performance in midweek.

Claudia Pina scored Barcelona’s first goal finding the top corner with a wonderful free kick in the 19th minute.

Barca’s number 6 got her brace when she doubled the team’s lead from the penalty spot six minutes after opening the scoring.

In the second half, Guilia Dragoni struck the underside of the crossbar with a powerful strike after receiving a pass from Aitana Bonmati.

Caroline Graham Hansen came off the bench to add to her tally for the season when she scored Barcelona’s third goal of the night with a brilliant finish.

Keira Walsh also came close to scoring with a fierce shot that forced a magnificent save from the goalkeeper.

Barcelona rounded up the game with a goal in additional time when Caroline Graham Hansen passed the ball across the face of goal for Esmee Brugts to finish from close range.

The game ended 4-0 in favor of Barcelona, who remain at the top of the league’s standings with 9 points and a huge goal difference.
