Oshoala Makes History As Barcelona Thrash Chelsea To Win Women’s Champions League

Asisat Oshoala claimed the biggest club title of her career as Barcelona Femeni thrashed Chelsea in a one-sided Women’s Champions League final in Gothenburg on Sunday.

An own-goal inside the opening 30 seconds from an out-of-sorts Melanie Leupolz gave Barcelona the initiative, before Leupolz gave away a spot kick which Alexia Putellas put away on the 14th-minute mark.

Two further goals from Aitana Bonmati and Caroline Graham Hansen made it 4-0 at the break as Barcelona snuffed the life out of the English side and all but sealed victory in the opening half.

Oshoala was subbed on in the 71st-minute and thought she’d grabbed her fifth of the competition but her effort in added time was ruled out for offside.

After losing to Lyon in the 2019 final in which Oshoala scored the consolation in a 4-1 defeat, Barcelona have finally won the Champions League for the first time in their history and are the first Spanish team to win it.

Oshoala is also the first Nigerian to lift the trophy.

The triumph caps an extremely successful campaign for Lluis Cortes’ side who also claimed the league title in Spain without losing a game.
