Oshoala wins Treble with Barcelona

Asisat Barcelona

Asisat Oshoala has won the Treble with Barcelona, following their 4-2 win over Levante in Sunday’s Copa de la Reina final.

The Blaugranes had won the UEFA Women’s Champions and Primera Division for a record sixth time earlier this season.

Lluis Cortes’ ladies put up another fine display against the Granores at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.

Patricia Guijarro gave Barcelona the lead in the 5th minute, heading past goalkeeper Maria Lopez.

Alexis Putellas doubled their lead 15 minutes later.

In the goal-laden first half, the reigning European champions increased their lead nine minutes later through another header – Martens completed her treble of assists when she set up Marta Torrejon.

In the second half, Levante stepped up their game to pull one goal back a minute to the hour mark as Alba Redondo rolled the ball inside the net after capitalising on a mix-up between goalkeeper Catalina Lluch and one of her defenders.

Fuelled by that strike, the Granores continued their push for more goals and that paid off in the 67th minute when Argentine midfielder Estefania Banini drilled home a sumptuous strike following a poor clearance in Barca’s goal area.

Six minutes later, Putellas completed her brace to put the game beyond Levante’s reach. After dispossessing Claudia Sanchez, the midfielder wasted no chance in putting the ball beyond the opposing goalkeeper.
