Asisat Oshoala has disclosed that her team Barcelona Feminine will attempt to go all the way in this season’s UEFA women’s Champions league.

Barcelona will take on Belarusian side Minsk in the first-leg of the round of 16 on Thursday at the Estadi Johan Cruyff before going to Stadion FK Minsk two weeks later.

 

Oshoala who scored in Barcelona’s 4-1 to Lyon in last season’s final will come face to face with compatriot Emuidzhi Oghiabekhva who is on the payroll of Minsk , which left the attacker excited.

 

“It’s a very good thing. It’s really nice to see my national teammate [Emuidzhi Oghiabekhva] playing in the Champions League just like me,” Oshoala said.

 

“Playing against her [Minsk] team, it’s a very big challenge for me personally and it’s going to be really interesting.”

 

The Super Falcons forward added that Barcelona will leave no stone upturned, as they aim to go one step further this year.

 

“I think no matter the opponent we are playing against, we just have to give everything and make sure we get the three points before other things come later.

 

“I think Minsk are a very good side and a top side as well and won all the games in their domestic league and also qualified through the Champions League playoff and beat Zurich in the Round of 32.

 

Lyon, Bayern Munich and even Minsk at this stage. We are ready to give everything to take us to the next round.” She said.
