FC Barcelona femeni passionately produced an emphatic display to brush aside Chelsea Femeni 4-0 in the Women’s Champions League final on Sunday.
An own-goal from Melanie Leupoiz set Barcelona women ahead of Chelsea from the first minutes of the game.
While the Chelsea ladies are yet to recover from the rush, Alexia Putellas secured the Catalans’ femeni their second goal of the day winning a penalty kick.
Aitana Bonmati again in the 20th minute of the game netted Barcelona their third goal.
Barca completed the rout in the 36th minute of the first half, winning their 4th goal after a top notch finishing by Caroline Graham Hansen.
Nigerian striker, Asisat Oshoala was, however, a late substitute as Barcelona spared her due to an injury crisis lately.
It was the Spanish side’s first title and they did it in style at the Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, thumping the English champions.
The win makes Oshoala the first African to win the Women’s Champions League title.
The four-time Africa Women’s Footballer of The Year had been involved in Barca’s previous appearance in the final – a 4-1 defeat to Lyon – where she scored her team’s solitary goal.
