Oshoala nets hat-trick in Barcelona’s 7-0 victory
Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala grabbed the headlines again; scoring three goals as Barcelona Ladies recorded an emphatic 7-0 victory over Valencia in one of Saturday’s Spanish Primera Division tie
The Nigeria international was on target for Barcelona’s fourth, fifth and seventh goals in Saturday’s tie.
Barcelona within the first 60 seconds shot into the lead as Mariona converted an assist from Aitana.

Hansen moved from a provider to a scorer as she powered in Barcelona’s third, and then crossed to Oshoala for goal number four before the Nigerian added one more to make it 5-0 by the break.
The Barcelona Ladies continued from where they stopped in the second half and when initially slowed down by the series of chances they blew away; including a penalty miss by Oshoala.
Eventually, Torrejón in the 55 the minute increased Barcelona’s lead to 6-0 before a fine finish from Oshoala rounded off her hat-trick and effectively saw Barcelona finishing as 7-0 winners.
With the comprehensive win on Saturday, Barça have now scored 45 goals and conceded just once in the league.
For Oshoala, she now has seven goals to her name across all competitions for Barcelona this season.
