Oshoala hits brace as Barcelona beat Roya Vallecano 7-0

Asisat Oshoala

Asisat Oshoala netted twice to help Barcelona secure a 7-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano in Wednesday’s Spanish Primera Iberdrola fixture.

Having come on as a substitute in last Wednesday’s Super Cup loss to Atletico Madrid, the Nigeria international was handed her seventh start this term for Barcelona and made the best of her time.

In a quest for a return to winning ways, the champions started the game at home impressively after Alexia Putellas set up Jenni Hermoso for the opener as early as the fourth minute.

Seven minutes later, Alexia Putellas doubled the lead for the host thanks to a brilliant pass from Melanie Serrano before Oshoala tapped in the third off Marta Torrejon’s cross in the 15th minute.

Five minutes from half-time, Caroline Graham Hansen teed up Putellas for her brace of the match and Barcelona’s fourth.

After the break, the Calatans continued from where they left off as Kheira Hamraoui sent through a perfect cross for Oshoala to head home to bag her second 14 minutes into the second half.

Melanie Serrano assisted Mapi Leon to score the host’s sixth in the 73rd minute before Aitana Bonmati wrapped up the victory in style thanks to Andrea Falcon’s pass on the brink of time.
