Oshoala In Action As Barcelona Ladies Beat Bayern To Reach Women’s UCL Final

Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala featured as a substitute as Barcelona Ladies beat Bayern Munich 1-0 at home – at the Miniestadi on Sunday to secure a place in the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League, reports Completesports.com.

Olivier Mariona scored the lone match-winning goal from the spot in added time of the first half.

The Blaugrana advanced into the final on a 2-0 aggregate win having won the first leg, semi-final tie last Sunday 1-0 in Munich.

It was the first time Lluis Cortes’ ladies will make it to the final of the competition and they also make history as the first Spanish side to achieve the feat.

Oshoala replaced England forward Toni Duggan in the 71st minute of the encounter for her second appearance in the competition.

It was the 24-year-old’s ninth appearance in all competitions for Barcelona since joining in February on loan from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian.

Oshoala has scored seven goals in six league games this season.

The Spanish giants will face the winner of the other semi-final match between Lyon and Chelsea in the final, to fight for the 2018/19 Women’s UEFA Champions League title in Budapest on May 18.

    I have said it that coach Rohr should invite this lady Oshoala to the Super Eagles camp but no one is listening to me.

    She plays regularly for Barca and now she is in the Champions league final.

    Read my lips…

     
    • After you made that post, she was actually by Rohr for the match against Egypt. But due to gender-related technicality, she declined the invitation (Lol)
