Barcelona’s Oshoala overcome Chelsea to lift UEFA Women Champions League

Barcelona are the 2021 UEFA Women Champions League winner after the Spanish side thrashed Chelsea Ladies 4-0 in the final played at the Gamla Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Only just recovering from an injury, Asisat Oshoala was a second-half substitute in a game where all the damage had been done in the first half.

Goals from Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati, and Hansen followed Melanie Leupolz’s first-minute own goal confirmed the Spanish champions’ superiority all before the break.

Oshoala, therefore, becomes the first Nigerian woman to lift female football’s biggest club trophy.

The four-time African women player of the year was close to winning the UEFAWCL two years ago, but failed at the last hurdle as Lyon handed Barca a 4-1 thrashing at the Groupama Arena in Budapest.

Oshoala scored Barcelona’s consolation goal that night.

But it’s victory at last for the Super Falcons striker whose contribution to Barcelona’s triumph includes four goals in eight matches.

Oshoala scored in Barca’s 4-1 win at PSV and also in her side’s 5-0 victory over Fortuna Hjørring in the earlier rounds of the competition.
