Another goal for Oshoala, another win for Barcelona

Published on: 07 May 2023

Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala with her scoring form helped Barcelona Femeni to continue their winning streak in the Women's Spanish La Liga after beating Real Sociedad 5-2 on Saturday, reports.

The first leg had been a hard fought win where the champions had to come from behind to win 2-1, but not this time as at the end of the match day 34 encounter it was 1-4 in favour of the visitors.

Patri Guijarro opened score 21 minutes into the game before Oshoala scored the second for Barcelona four minutes later after a beautiful turn in the box to smash it into the net.


It was three four minutes later courtesy of  Aitana as Caroline Graham Hansen made the lead comprehensive in the 32nd minute with a header.  Jensen pulled one back for the hosts in the 38 minute.

Hansen scored her second goal of the game 13 minutes into the half to make it 5-1 before an own goal by Guijarro in the 68th minute which ended the tie 2-5.

The goal for Oshoala is her 21st which means she broke her personal mark for goals in the Spanish top flight.

She is now second on the goal-scoring charts with Zambian forward for Madrid CFF Rachael Kundananji.
