Barcelona came from behind to beat Arsenal 5-2 in a friendly at Meadow Park, which was preceded by the opening of the new North Bank stand by Lionesses’ head coach Phil Neville.

Katie McCabe opened the scoring via the post but the UWCL runners-up of last season hit back twice just before the break through Patricia Guijarro’s effort from distance and then Asisat Oshoala.

Former Gunner Oshoala doubled her tally just after the interval and Claudia Pina came off the bench to curl home a fourth and make sure of victory.

Kim Little did get one back with a penalty, only for Pina to quickly add her second of the night.
