The Super Falcons forward came on as a substitute and grabbed two late goals to lift the Catalans past Athletic Bilbao with a 0-3 away victory.
Barcelona Ladies claimed their first win of the year as an Asisat Oshoala brace and a Mariona Caldentey strike handed Lluís Cortés side a thoroughly deserved victory.
Barca started the game with the confidence of a side that have won their last 14 matches in all competitions, but Bilbao stood their ground to keep the scoreline levelled at halftime.
The Cules’ attack finally kicked into gear when Oshoala was introduced on the hour mark. Four minutes later, the visitors were in front after Mariona applied the finishing touch to a Jenni Hermoso delivery.
Oshoala then smashed the second goal into the top corner from the edge of the box before completing her brace with five minutes left on the clock. The Nigerian international now has 10 goals in 13 league games for the Blaugranes.
