Asisat Oshoala and her FC Barcelona Femeni side were beaten 3-1 by Olympique Lyonnais in Turin to claim another Champions League title.

The Super Falcons star was subbed into the game at halftime but could not do enough to reverse the 3-1 damages in the first half.

Barcelona was heading into the final as the defending champions of this competition and after an impressive season with 30 wins in 30 games.

Lyon has now won the Champions League eight times.

Lyon broke the deadlock in just six minutes, and after the first goal was scored, spectators across the world were treated to a breathtaking duel between the two European heavyweights.

Midfielder Henry, 32, scored the game’s first goal with a spectacular strike from outside the box after picking up a loose ball more than 25 yards away and fired a shot that ricocheted into the top corner.

In the 23rd minute, Ada Hegerberg doubled the advantage, continuing her remarkable run of form after returning from injury in October 2021. After sustaining an ACL injury in January 2020, the Norwegian was sidelined for 21 months.

Lyon’s failure to win a trophy in the 2020/21 season demonstrated how important Hegerberg is to the team. They not only lost their Champions League title, but they also lost the league for the first time in 14 years.

Catarina Macario added to the goal chart 12 minutes before halftime, putting Lyon almost out of sight before the half-time siren.

Barca got a goal from Alexia Putellas soon before halftime, but it was really a consolation goal as the French side took control once more.

Oshoala was the top scorer in women’s Spanish Primera Division with Barcelona, scoring 20 goals in 19 games and sharing the title with Brazilian Geyse Ferreira, who scored 20 goals in 27 outings for Madrid CFF.
