Double Double! Brace of goals and assists for Oshoala in Barcelona’s Champions League win


Super Falcons attacker Asisat Oshoala was on sung as Barcelona Women bamboozled Benfica Women 9-0 in their opening game of the UEFA Women Champions League at the Estadio Johan Cruyff.

Oshoala started in the middle of a three prong attack and was lively from the start as Barcelona only needed 1 minute to open the scoring.

The Nigerian laid down a low cross for Patricia Guijarro to put Barcelona ahead.

Oshoala then grabbed another assist as she headed down a cross on the path of Aitana Bonmati who converted colly for the second.

With the Spanish champions in their rhythm, the goals kept coming and yet again Oshoala would have a hand in it, capping off a dominant first half display in style.

She received a poor clearance from the opposition defense and sent a long range shot from outside the box beyond Rute Costa to make it 3 for hosts.

The second half started in the same fashion as the first had ended, as Barcelona increased intensity and put 6 more goals past Benfica Women in the second half.

Asisat Oshoala was not to be denied a second as she was on hand to tap into a empty net after a neat drive from Mariona Caldentey to score Barcelona 8th goal of the encounter and them to a 9-0 victory to go top of group D.

Next for the 2021 UWCL winners is an away game at Rosengard, before a double header against Bayern Munich.
