Naturally, the rout imposed by the eagles against Länk Vilaverdense (4-0), during a match of the 7th round and which took place at the beginning of the afternoon of this Saturday, at the Estádio Municipal de Vila Verde, was included in this count.
Ana Vitória, in the 27th minute, from a penalty (Sofia Barroso fouls Cassandra Korhonen) opened the scoring, and it was Cloé Lacasse, with a header, at 45+2 minutes, and following Marta Cintra , making the 2- 0 with which the break would come.
In the complementary phase, the eagles scored twice, both by Cassandra Korhonen. The Swede made it 3-0 in the 53rd minute with a left-footed shot after a pass from Cloé Lacasse, and scored twice in the 62nd minute with another well-targeted shot after a another deadly pass from Cloé Lacasse.
