Oshoala Wins Champions League With Barcelona

Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala has won the UEFA Women's Champions League with Barcelona after a 4-0 win over Chelsea in Gothenburg, Sweden. Barcelona came into the game with zeal and attacked early on which led to an own goal by Leupolz in the 1st minute of the game, to set the tone for a thrilling final

Barcelona got the second goal in the 14th minute after Leupolz fouled Jenni Hermoso in the box and Alexia scored the penalty. Barcelona got the third goal in the 20th minute when Aina Bonmati scored after a quick counter attack from Barcelona


Barcelona made it 4 in the 38th minute when Caroline Graham Hansen met Lieke Martens' cross and slotted home. The former world footballer of the year dribbled her marker before laying a low cross to Hansen who calmly slotted past Berger in goal for Chelsea


Loius Cortes later brought on Oshoala who just returned from injury in order to sustain the pressure on Emma Hayes' ladies. Chelsea got chances in the game but Sam Kerr and Pernille Harder failed to convert clear chances


Oshoala wins the tournament for the first time after a 4-1 loss to Lyon in the final two years ago
