The 28-year-old also had a hand in her side's third goal as they cruised to an emphatic 3-0 win over Levante earlier this weekend.

Ajibade confirmed her move to the Primera Division side from Norwegian topflight Avaldnes on January 1 and she is already reaping the dividends for her action.

The forward ran out of a contract with her former last December and they refused to extend her stay despite helping them to finish fifth last term having joined them on a two-year deal from Nigerian side Robo Queens in December 2018.

She will represent the Spanish outfit for the next two years and will also have the chance to play against compatriot Asisat Oshoala who plays for FC Barcelona Femeni.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigeria international Rasheedat Ajibade has completed a big move to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid with the Super Falcons star signing a two-year deal with the club.
