Asisat Oshoala Becomes LaLiga’s Joint Top Scorer After Logroño Hattrick

Super Falcons Captain Asisat Oshoala grabbed her second hattrick of the season as Barcelona women earned their 18th La Liga victory by defeating Logroño 6-0 at Las Gaunas.

The visitors had spurned a handful of opportunities to take the lead until Marta opened the scoring in the 32nd-minute.

Just two minutes later, Alexia made it two, before adding another just before the break to take her goals tally to 10 in the league and 15 in all competitions.

The second 45 minutes had Africa’s Women Player of the Year Oshoala scoring all three goals in the second half to go level with Jenni Hermoso as joint-top scorer in the Spanish La Liga.

Oshoala’s side remain unbeaten at the top of the table with 56 points and will next face Deportivo Abanca in the quarterfinals of the Copa de la Reina on Wednesday.
