BARCELONA -- Spanish champions Atletico Madrid saw their 100 percent start to the season ended in emphatic fashion on Saturday as they were hammered 6-1 by title rivals Barcelona.
Barca won their opening fixture 9-1 against Tacon -- who will become known as Real Madrid next season -- but it is their fixture against Atletico which is known as the Clasico of women's football in Spain.
A surprise draw at Rayo Vallecano last weekend, though, meant the Blaugrana went into the fixture two points behind...
Spain international Jenni Hermoso scored a late hat-trick as Barcelona hammered CD Tacon 9-1 on the opening day of Spain's Women's Primera Division on Saturday, giving the team absorbed by Real Madrid a rude awakening to life in the top flight.
Madrid reached a deal earlier this year to buy capital club Tacon although they will not officially become part of Real until July 2020, yet the game was still billed by many as the first women's Clasico between Spain's biggest sides.
