Oshoala helps Barcelona reach first Women’s Champions League final

Asisat Oshoala becomes the first Nigerian Woman to Qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final after helping the Catalans to a 1-0 victory over German side Bayern Munich on Sunday.

12,764 spectators were in the Miniestadi, a record for the women’s team at home as the Spanish side matched on to the final of the competition for the first time in their history.


 

A penalty from Mariona in added time at the end of the first half ensured Barça’s presence in Budapest, but they’ll be without Hamraoui, who was sent off in the second half for two yellow card offenses.

 

Oshoala came on as a substitute when she replaced Duggan in the 70 minutes of the encounter and has scored five goals for the Club since arriving at the Club on loan from China.

 

Barcelona will now meet the holders Lyon who remain on course for a sixth title and fourth in a row after holding off Chelsea, who attracted their record crowd of 4,670 – the most to watch a game at this level in England other than a final.
