Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala was on target during Barcelona women’s 4-1 win over Real Sociedad in their Liga Iberdrola clash at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on Tuesday.

The star forward opened the scoring for her side in the 18th minute after taking advantage of a poor ball clearance by the Sociedad keeper, Maria Asuncion Quinones.

Ana Nahikari leveled the scores for the visitors in the 27th minute to make it 1-1 to silence the home fans.

But Barcelona regained the lead six minutes later through Aintana Bonmati’s effort and Matra Torrejon added another in the 35th minute to finish the first half with a 3-1 lead.

Substitute Andressa Alves sealed the win 14 minutes from time as Barcelona won the game by 4-1.

The three-time African Women’s Footballer of the Year has now scored four goals in four games since she joined the club in January from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian.
