Barcelona cruised into the Women’s Champions League semi-finals for the fifth success season thanks to a crushing 5-1 win over Roma in the second leg of their quarter-final tie at Camp Nou.
But there was no repeat of that once Fridolina Rolfo set Barcelona on their way, doubling her personal tally after Mapi Leon had made it 2-0.
Asisat Oshoala and Patri Guijarro continued the scoring in the second half, before Annamaria Serturini’s Roma consolation.
Roma had a clear plan to try and contain Barcelona and then spring their own attacks.
But the second goal was less a perfectly manicured passing move and more a world class screamer out of nowhere.
Leon received a pass from Keira Walsh and instead of looking for the next lay-off simply put her foot through it and watched the ball fly into the top corner from almost 30 yards.
Barça seemed like they could score every time they really turned it on and Rolfo’s second was exactly that as the lateral passes quickly switched to send Hansen in down the right.
There was no let up for Roma there, with Guijarro getting the fifth only seven minutes after – she was completely unmarked to head in Hansen’s corner with a near post flick.
Roma did get a consolation when Serturini sensationally fired into the bottom corner on the counter, a moment for her to remember personally if nothing else.
