Asisat Oshoala struck a brace to steal the show as Barcelona beat Madrid 4-0 on Saturday and fans of the round leather have taken to social media to hail her woman-of-the-match display.
The Nigeria international, who had scored in four consecutive matches for Llius Cortes’ ladies this season, got Barcelona women ahead with a goal in each half before a Jennifer Hermoso’s strike and another from substitute Aitana Bonmati made certain of the win in a Spanish Primera Iberdrola encounter.
Asisat Oshoala's last 7 games for Barça;

With that brace, Asisat Oshoala has now scored in five successive games for Barcelona, claiming eight goals in 11 games in all competitions this season and moving into second spot on the scoring chart with seven goals from seven league games – one behind her teammate Hermoso who scored her eighth in the contest.
Quien dice 6 goles, dice 7. Tremenda Oshoala, que rompe el encuentro nada más iniciarse el 2T (0-2). Cabalgada de Hansen (una más) y la delantera siempre lista dentro del área.
PD: Oshoala iguala a Jenni como máxima goleadora.
