Asisat Oshoala on target as Barcelona Femeni beat Real Madrid to reach Copa de la Reina final

Super Falcons of Nigeria star Asisat Oshoala was on target for Barcelona Femeni as they recorded a 4-0 victory against Real Madrid in a Copa de la Reina semifinal fixture played on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.

The 27-year-old Oshoala was given the start by Barcelona Femeni boss Jonatan Giráldez.

It was Oshoala's first start in three games as she was a substitute in the final league game of the season and the UEFA Women's Champions League final.

Oshoala would prove her worth with a goal to send Barcelona Femeni to the Copa de la Reina final.

The Super Falcons star played a crucial role as Barcelona Femeni overcame rivals Real Madrid in a semifinal El-Clasico.

Lieke Martens put Barcelona Femeni in front as early as the 19th minute when she converted a ball through to her by Alexia Putellas.

After the halftime break, Oshoala provided the second goal for Aitana Bonmati in the 47th minute.

In the 52nd minute, Martens provided the third for Mariona Caldentey. Oshoala got on the score sheet in the 75th minute as she converted a ball through to her by Claudia Pina.

The Super Falcons star was substituted three minutes later for Ona Baradad as Barcelona Femeni held on for the win.

Despite missing out on the Champions League this season, Barcelona Femeni have already won the league title and have shot at the treble if they beat Sporting de Huelva in the Copa de la Reina final scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 29, 2022.
