Oshoala Barcelona Femini Man City Champions League



Super Falcons skipper, Assisat Oshoala, has won the Primera Division title with Barcelona Women on Sunday after beating Granadilla Tenerife 1-0.

Oshoala missed the encounter with a leg injury but Barcelona claimed the victory with five games to spare and 16 points clear of Levante, who drew 1-1 against Espanyol.

It was their second consecutive title and their sixth in the club’s history despite COVID-19 forcing last season’s Primera Iberdrola campaign to end after just 21 games played.

FootballEspana reported that the RFEF awarded Barcelona Femeni the title as they were nine points clear.

Having won the league, Oshoala and her teammates won’t be able to celebrate their title with supporters until they play Athletic Bilbao at Estadi Johan Cruyff on May 19.

“Congratulations, champions @FCBfemeni!” wrote Laporta. “The league is Barca’s reward for your effort, dedication and commitment. Thank you for making us enjoy this season so much.”
