Asisat Oshoala was part of the history-making team that starred in the first-ever female El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Barca thrashed Real on their home ground by 4-0 as the defending champions dominated their opponents in their entire match.
Super Falcons’ Captain and reigning African Footballer of the Year, Asisat Oshoala and the rest of her Barcelona Femeni
began their domestic league campaign on a bright note yesterday as they hammered Real Madrid’s women’s team 4-0
at home in the first ‘Clasico’ in the Primera Division.
The Nigeria forward who was one of the top scorers for the defending champions was however
not on scoring sheet as she came in for Jennifer Hermoso in the 72nd minute.
She was part of the action that led to fourth goal of the match.
It took just 19 minutes for La Blaugranes to take the lead through Patri Gijarro to record the first goal in the Clasico and made it 1-0.
María Rodríguez put the ball into the back of her net to record an own goal in the 55th minute as the score became 2-0.
Martens and Alexia Putellas scored the third and fourth goal in the 66th and 75th minutes respectively to seal the 4-0 win.

Meanwhile, another Nigerian player, Chioma Ubogagu was unused player for Real Madrid as she sat all through and
watched the away side pummel her teammates all through the maiden El Clasico.
Real were playing their first match since completing the process to absorb local side CD Tacon in July,
having competed in the top flight last season under Tacon’s name and wearing their kit but training and
playing at Real’s training ground.
