Besides scoring against Man City in both legs of their last eight fixtures, Oshoala also found the back of the net against PSV and Fortuna Hjørring in the earlier stages of the championship.

Meanwhile, the former Arsenal and Liverpool ladies' star has scored a total of 19 goals in 26 appearances across competitions so far this campaign.

She will be hoping to score more as the season progresses having reached the last four phase while her club continues to dominate the Spanish women's league.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian sensation Asisat Oshoala scored in Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Man City Ladies in the UEFA women’s Champions League competition on Wednesday, March 24.
