Oshoala wins 2nd Women’s Champions League title with Barcelona



Barcelona Femeni pulled off a brilliant comeback to defeat Wolfsburg 3-2 in the 2022/2023 UEFA Women’s Champions League final.


The thrilling encounter took place on Saturday at the Philips Stadium in Eindhoven, Netherlands.


Wolfsburg led 2-0 at the break, thanks to goals from Ewa Pajor and Alexandra Popp.


Patri Guijarro’s two-minute brace, however, pulled Barcelona level after which Fridolina Rolfo got the winner for the Spanish giants.

With the victory, Barcelona claimed their second UCL title — following up on their first triumph in 2021.


However, Asisat Oshoala, the Nigerian striker, didn’t participate in the UCL final due to a hamstring she picked up during the semi-final.


The reigning African Women’s Footballer of the Year was part of the side that won the trophy in 2021.


They, however, lost last year’s final to Lyon.
