Asisat Oshoala was in blistering form, scoring two goals, as she inspired Barcelona to a 10-1 victory against Real Sociedad in Sunday’s Spanish Women’s Super Cup final.

The 25-year-old netted the winner in her side’s 3-2 triumph over Atletico Madrid in the semi-final of the competition to ensure a final date against the Spanish Cup champions in Salamanca.

Barcelona started their quest to clinch their first trophy in 2020 on a high with Marta Torrejon opening the scoring after just five minutes before Alexia Putellas doubled the lead two minutes later.

In the 33rd minute, Torrejon scored her second of the tie and third for the Catalans before Oshoala, Caroline Hansen and Putellas added the fourth, fifth and sixth goals before the half-time break.

After the restart, Barcelona extended their dominance when four-time African Women’s Player of the Year netted her second six minutes into the half before Torrejon hit her treble in the 56th minute.

However, the Spanish Cup winners pulled one back in the 63rd minute through Manuela Lareo, but Candela Andujar and Torrejon’s fourth later saw Lluis Cortes’ ladies earn a landslide win.

Oshoala who played the duration of the game has now scored 19 goals in 22 matches in all competitions this season.
