By Duchess Magazine

In a thrilling showdown, FC Barcelona Femini emerged victorious in the UEFA Champions League final, defeating Wolfsburg 3-2 at the Philips Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Despite not being able to take part in the final due to injury, Nigerian superstar Asisat Oshoala joined her Barcelona teammates in celebrating their remarkable achievement, securing their second Champions League title in three years.

Barcelona’s path to glory was far from straightforward, as they faced an early setback with Wolfsburg taking the lead in the third minute of the game. The German side then doubled their advantage in the 37th minute, putting Barcelona on the back foot.

Undeterred, the Catalan giants fought back valiantly in the second half. Their revival began just three minutes after the restart when Patricia Guijarro found the back of the net, reigniting Barcelona’s hopes. Guijarro continued to shine, scoring her second goal in the 50th minute to bring the Blaugranas level.

The decisive moment arrived in the 70th minute, with Fridolina Rolfo sealing the victory for Barcelona with an assist from Mariona Caldentey. This hard-fought triumph showcased Barcelona’s resilience and determination to claim the title, marking a memorable day for the Spanish club.

The final itself made history, as it was the first Women’s Champions League final played before a sold-out crowd. The match drew the largest attendance ever recorded for a women’s soccer game in the Netherlands, underlining the growing popularity and support for the women’s game.

Barcelona’s success in the Champions League adds to their already impressive season. Prior to the final, they had secured the La Liga title, dominating the league with 29 wins out of 31 matches and an astounding 118 goals scored. Additionally, Oshoala and her teammates clinched the Spanish Super Cup by defeating Real Sociedad 3-0 in the final.

Although Oshoala was sidelined due to injury for the final clash against Wolfsburg, her contributions throughout the season cannot be overlooked. The Nigerian star netted five crucial goals in the Champions League campaign, showcasing her talent and importance to the team. In the league, despite battling injuries, Oshoala still managed an impressive tally of 21 goals, marking her best season since joining Barcelona.

As Barcelona Femini celebrate their UEFA Champions League triumph, the inclusion of Asisat Oshoala in their remarkable journey exemplifies her significant impact and contribution to the team’s success.
