Lieke Martens contributed to a new FC Barcelona victory on Sunday. Partly thanks to a hit by the attacker, EDF Logrono was defeated 6-0 in the competition. In England, Vivianne Miedema and Daniëlle van de Donk were important to Arsenal.

27-year-old Martens started in the base at Barcelona and already scored in the fifth minute. The score went up further thanks to Aitana Bonmatí (twice), Caroline Hansen, Victoria Losada and Alèxia Putellas.
Martens, who was substituted in the 57th minute, was also accurate on behalf of Barcelona a week ago. She then helped her team to a 0-4 win over Real Madrid in the first ‘Clásico’ for women.
Barcelona, which was declared champion despite the aborted last season, is together with Athletic Club the only team to have six points from two matches in the Primera División Femenina. Real Sociedad and Madrid CFF still have a duel credit and can also come to six points.
Arsenal won 0-5 in the English Women’s Super League at Brighton. Miedema and Van de Donk had a large share in the victory. The attacker scored two goals and Van de Donk was also accurate once. Miedema was also the declarant for the fourth goal.
The Orange-internationals participated the entire game with the London-squad, while Jill Roord was missing due to an injury. At Brighton, Inessa Kaagman and Danique Kerkdijk were on the field for ninety minutes.
With the victory, Arsenal, which has twelve points after four games, takes back the lead from Manchester United. Miedema is the top scorer with seven goals.
