Oshoala's Barcelona have won their fifth league title.
The league which had been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic has now been ended and it’s leader Barcelona declared champions due to the impossibility of playing out the last eight sets of fixtures over the lack of safety guarantees for all parties involved according to the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
A decision has also been reached that there will be no relegation from the top division, but Santa Teresa and Eibar will be promoted from the lower division meaning there will be 18 top-flight teams in the 2020/21 season.
