Oshoala Returns From Injury As Barca Ladies  Edge Bayern In Champions League Clash

Asisat Oshoala makes  a winning return as Barcelona Ladies secured a 1-0 away win against  Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League  semi-final clash on Sunday,  reports Completesports.com.

Kheira Hamraoui scored the winning goal for Barcelona Ladies in the 62nd minute of the encounter.

Barcelona  Women will now have to finish the job in the return match at the Miniestadi  next week Sunday.

Before then, they will face Sevilla in a LigaIberdola clash on Wednesday.

Oshoala started the game from the bench and took the place of England international Toni Duggan in the 65th minute.

The Nigeria international   has missed Barcelona last six games in all  competitions due to a hamstring injury.

Before her injury, she scored five goals in five league appearances for the Blaugrana.

The 24-year-old  is loan at Barcelona from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian.

Her return from injury will surely delight Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby who will be banking on the former Arsenal and Liverpool Ladies starlet to help his team make a positive impact at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France.
