In a dramatic championship game on Saturday, June 3, at the PSV Stadium in Eindhoven, Barcelona Ladies Football Club rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat VFL Wolfsburg 3-2.

Ewa Pajor, a forward from Poland, gave Wolfsburg the lead in the third minute before setting up Alexandra Popp for the team’s second goal eight minutes before halftime.

But after the break, Barcelona seized control of the match.

In the 48th minute, Patri Guijarro made it 2-1, and two minutes later, the Blaugrana equalized.

The Spanish Iberdrola champions then scored the victor 20 minutes from time on a goal by Fridolina Rolfo.

Asisat Oshoala, a forward for the Super Falcons and the African player of the year, was injured and was unable to play.

Barcelona’s victory marked their second time winning the title.

Oshoala ended the competition as the co-top scorer alongside her teammate Aitana Bonmati, with both players netting five goals each.

By clinching the trophy, the 27-year-old Oshoala now holds the distinction of being Africa’s most decorated female footballer and the first woman from the continent to claim Spain’s golden boot. Throughout her time at Barca, Oshoala has scored an impressive 81 goals in 104 appearances. She has recently signed a contract extension, ensuring her stay with the Spanish giants until the conclusion of the 2023-24 season.
