  • The defending champions recorded a 5-0 win over their arch-rivals
  • 2023 Ballon d'Or winner Aitana Bonmati was on target for the Catalans

Barcelona Femeni dominated Real Madrid with a resounding 5-0 victory in Sunday's Liga F Clasico at Montjuic.

Despite missing Alexia Putellas due to injury, the hosts showcased their superiority and secured a commanding win.

The first half was completely one-sided, with the hosts netting three goals and hitting the woodwork three times, while the visitors failed to create any scoring opportunities.

Barcelona initiated the scoring just 17 minutes into the match with an exquisite play that culminated in Aitana Bonmati delivering the final blow.

In a fluid movement down the left, Aitana received the ball on the edge of the box, took a touch, and elegantly curled a low shot into the net.

Aitana unleashed a powerful shot that struck the woodwork, and shortly after, Salma Paralluelo received a through ball but narrowly missed the target.

Caroline Graham Hansen believed she had doubled the lead by skillfully maneuvering past her defender, but her shot ricocheted off the goal frame.

The second goal finally materialized two minutes before halftime when Paralluelo's impressive long-range strike hit the woodwork, and Graham Hansen capitalized on the rebound.

Barcelona extended their lead to 3-0 in stoppage time, as a right-sided corner was not properly cleared and fell to Mariona Caldentey, who elegantly looped the ball over the goalkeeper.

The champions maintained their dominance in the second half, controlling the game, but they had to wait until stoppage time to find the net. Once again, Aitana posed a formidable threat, dribbling past the Real Madrid defense and setting up Claudia Pina for a close-range finish.

In a fitting conclusion, La Masia graduate Vicky Lopez added the fifth goal, becoming the youngest player to score in a Women's Clasico at just 17 years old.

Barcelona's victory preserves their flawless beginning to the Liga F season, having won all nine games played. Jonatan Giraldez's team now holds a commanding lead with 27 points, six ahead of both Real Madrid and Levante.
