Barcelona Femeni enjoyed a comfortable 4-1 Clasico win over Real Madrid on Sunday to continue their 100% record in the league this season.

Alexia Putellas struck the opener with a powerful left-footed shot from just outside the penalty area after just 14 minutes.

The goal was also a landmark for the 26-year-old as it was her 100th league goal for Barcelona.

The hosts did not have to wait too long to double their lead. Jenni Hermoso made it 2-0 midway through the first half with a simple finish into an empty net after good work from Asisat Oshoala.

Oshoala then got her name on the scoresheet to ensure Barca went in with a healthy 3-0 lead at half-time. The Nigeria international tapped home a low cross from Caroline Graham Hansen at the far post

Barca’s fourth also came from Oshoala, while Madrid goalkeeper Misa Rodríguez was sent off minutes later for handling the ball outside the area.

The visitors did manage to pull one back in the closing stages from the penalty spot as Barca also finished the game with 10 after Mapi Leon picked up a second yellow card.

The win makes it 13 straight league victories for Barcelona and means they are five points clear of Levante with two games in hand. Lluís Cortés’s team have now scored a massive 73 goals in those games and conceded just three.
