Asisat Oshoala was on the scoresheet, as Barcelona Femení earned a convincing 4-1 win over Real Sociedad to move to within three points of Primera Division leaders Atletico Madrid, who play Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday.
In the first of six matches in 19 days for the Blaugranes — with four in the league and two in the Champions League — Oshoala scored her fourth goal for the club.
The game began frantically, with several chances for the hosts before Oshoala volleyed in from the edge of the box.
Despite Barça dominance, the Basques equalized Nahikari Garcia just nine minutes later.
However, on 33 minutes Aitana Bonmatì restored Barça’s lead when when she nodded in Lieke Martens’ cross, and then Marta Torrejòn quickly added another.
The hosts continued to control the game after the break, but they had to wait till the 76th minute to get their fourth goal — with Andressa Alves curling in from distance.
Lluis Cortés’ side will continue their league-title chase with a trip to table-toppers Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
