Super Falcons Star targets UEFA Champions League final with Barcelona


Asisat Oshoala will be keen to make history with Barcelona Ladies as they seek a place in the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time in the history of the club.

The Blaugrana lead Bayern Munich 1-0 going into Sunday’s second leg, semi-final home fixture at the Miniestadi and look good to book a spot in the final where they will face either Chelsea or Olympic Lyon.

Barcelona Ladies head into the game in buoyant mood following Wednesday’s Liga Iberdrola 6-2 win against Sevilla.

Oshoala netted a brace in that encounter, her first Liga Iberdrola appearance since the 2-1 away win against Atletico Madrid in March.

The Nigeria international missed six games in all competitions for Barcelona Ladies afterwards as a result of a hamstring injury and only made her return in the first leg against Bayern Munich last weekend.

The forward who is on loan at Barcelona Ladies from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian, has scored seven goals in six league appearances for the club.

Oshoalq will look to register her first goal for Barcelona Ladies in the Champions League against the Bavarians.
