Barcelona Femeni delivered an amazing performance against Sevilla in their seventh Liga F game of the season. The champions won 8-0 at home, dealing a severe blow to their opponents and extending their three-point lead at the top of the table.

The Blaugrana’s performance was impeccable, as the team delivered a masterclass in attacking football that saw Salma Paralluelo(4), Mariona Caldentey(2), Caroline Graham Hansen, and Marta Torrejon get their names on the scoresheet.

Here are a few things that were noticed during the game:

Estadi Johan Cryuff is a fortress

Barcelona Femeni has been exceptional at home this season, winning all of their games convincingly. However, the game against Sevilla was their biggest win of the season so far. The league champions made a statement win when they blew Sevilla away, putting eight goals past them in front of a happy home crowd.

Barcelona, who have struggled with scoring goals away from home this season, tends to show a different side of their attacking prowess when faced at home. The Catalan giants have scored a total of 23 goals in their four games played at home this season.

Four goals for Paralluelo

An account of Barcelona’s huge win against Sevilla will not be complete without talking about the performance of the game’s MVP. Salma Paralluelo scored half of Barcelona’s goals in the match, netting four times in the first half to give Barcelona all three points before the half-time whistle was blown.

The 19-year-old forward was spectacular, as she broke through Sevilla’s defense with ease and found the back of the net four times in forty minutes.

Ruthless and lethal attack

Every time Barcelona plays, the team creates lots of goalscoring chances; however, the team fails to convert a huge amount of those chances. The game against Sevilla was not one of those games. Barcelona were as clinical as a team could be in front of goal, converting up to seventy percent of the chances created in the game. 

The team rarely wasted any effort in attack and had almost all of their attempts on target. The lethal combination of the midfield and attacking trio led to Barcelona scoring four goals in each half, with all three forwards getting on the scoresheet.

Up next for Barcelona is an away game at Villareal in the Liga F on November 11, before they resume the defense of their Champions League crown against Benfica at home on November 14.
