Another defensive error allowed Anita to increase the visitors lead in the 61st minute and more errors would further gave room for Flor to give Recreativo a 3-1 away lead.

But Asisat Oshoala got one back whe she nodded home a corner kick in the 84th minute.

Barcelona had one last chance from a free kick to draw level but wasted the chance.

With her brace in her second game, Asisat Oshoala has now scored 3 goals for Barcelona women.
