Bang! A third hat trick in four games for Nigerian Barcelona striker Oshoala.
Asisat Oshoala of Nigeria, a forward for Barcelona Femeni, scored her third hat-trick of the year in four straight games as the Catalan club thrashed Real Betis 7-0 in yesterday’s Spanish Liga F match at Estadi Johan Cruyff.
Oshoala, the Super Falcons’ vice captain, reportedly scored a hat trick twice this 2022–23 season, the first in a 7–0 victory over Levante Las Planas and the second coming from Granadilla
The fourth goal was scored by the Nigerian superstar in the 61st minute, who entered the match as Ana Maria Crnogorcevic’s replacement.
Geyse scored the opening goal for Barcelona Femeni in the 14th minute, and Keira Walsh doubled Jonatan Giraldez’s team’s advantage before Oshoala’s goal.
The Nigerian star who came into the game as a substitute for Ana Maria Crnogorcevic, got her name on the scoresheet when she scored the fourth in the 61st minute.
Prior to Oshoala’s goal, Barcelona Femeni had already taken the lead through Geyse in the 14th minute, Keira Walsh in the 38th minute, and Claudia Pina three minutes after the break. Before Mariona Caldentey scored the home team’s fifth goal in the 64th minute, Oshoala made it 4-0 on the hour mark by tapping in a Fridolina Rolfo cross into an empty net
Just 13 minutes later, Oshoala scored her second goal of the match off of another Rolfo cross. The five-time African Player of the Year then completed her hat trick in the remaining minutes. After taking over for Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic in the 59th minute, the former FC Robo Queens player scored three goals in the second half.
