Asisat Oshoala’s Barcelona pipped Bayern Munich 1-0 in the semi-final second leg of the Uefa Women’s Champions League at Mini Estadi.

 

The result means Lluis Cortes’ ladies advanced with a 2-0 aggregate win on Sunday, and has become the first Spanish club to reach the final of the European women’s club competition.

 

 

The Blaugrana went into the match in Barcelona needing at least a draw after gaining a 1-0 first-leg advantage, and they claimed a back-to-back win to book a final berth.

The Nigerian, who made her second outing in the competition, replaced Toni Duggan in the 71st minute to ensure 10-player Cortes’ side claimed a win through Mariona’s strike from the spot.

It was the 24-year-old’s ninth appearance in all competitions for Barcelona since joining in February and she has scored seven goals in six league games this season.

 

After earning their spot, the Spanish giants will face the winner of the other semi-final, between Lyon and Chelsea, for the trophy in Budapest on May 18.
