Oshoala scored Barca’s second goal, heading home from a Lieke Martens’ corner kick in the 55th minute.


The goal was also an icing on the cake for Oshoala, who celebrates a year anniversary with the Catalan club.

“Higher than the goalie 😤😤😤…..glad to be on the score sheet again and of course great team work and happy 1 year anniversary to me and my cules family 🤪💙💙@fcbfemeni ” she tweeted.


Meanwhile, the goal marks her 15th in the league and it helped the Club remain unbeaten this season.

They have not dropped points at home this term, winning 9 out of 9 and have scored a staggering 43 goals, conceding just five.

The sides settled for a 1-1 draw, a Jenifer Hermoso rescuing a point for the visitors.
