Five minutes into the second half, the four-time African women's footballer of the year completed her brace with another fine finish.

Marta Torrejon's 78th-minute strike ensured the demolition was complete while Alba Merino's 64th-minute goal only ended up a mere consolation.

The triumph has propelled Johan Cryuff's outfit back to the summit of the league despite having three games in hand.

Having missed out of the Spanish league top scorer award to her teammate Jennifer Hermoso last season, the Nigerian star will intensify her efforts this time around.

She has already scored nine goals in 10 appearances and if she continues this way, she could end up claiming the award eventually.
