UWCL Final: Asisat Oshoala Score In Barcelona Loss To Lyon

Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala scored Barcelona Femenino’s only goal as Lyon Feminines continued their remarkable European dominance to defeat Barcelona 4-1 in the 2019 UEFA Women’s Champions League final.

Ada Hegerberg’s first half hattrick helped the French giants secure a fourth consecutive Women’s Champions League title.

The 23-year-old made history as she became the first player to net a hat-trick in a Women’s Champions League final since the competition’s rebranding in 2010.

First-time finalists Barcelona almost led early on through Lionesses forward Toni Duggan, but after she fired narrowly wide, Lyon ruthlessly netted four times before the break.

Former Liverpool and Arsenal forward Asisat Oshoala netted a late consolation for the Catalan club in Hungary’s capital Budapest but they could do nothing to stop Lyon claiming a sixth European crown in eight years.
