Asisat Oshoala Strikes Against Atletico Madrid In Barcelona Win

Super Falcons of Nigeria forward Asisat Oshoala continued her startling form for Barcelona Femeni by netting one in their 2-0 away win against title rivals Atletico Madrid Ladies at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Sunday.

The goal was Oshoala’s fifth in five appearances for Barcelona in the Liga Iberdrola since her arrival on loan from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian in January.

Oshoala opened scoring for Barcelona in the 65th minute of the keenly contested encounter.

The former Arsenal and Liverpool Ladies starlet was however replaced by Toni Duggan 17 minutes from time, who secured the three points for the Barcelona Ladies by netting the second goal 10 minutes from time.

Barcelona Ladies are now leveled on points at the top of the Liga Iberdrola table with Atletico Madrid.

The game saw a new record in the women’s league with 60,739 spectators present at the Wanda Metropolitano.
