Barcelona won French side Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the second leg of their semifinal on Sunday afternoon to set up a meeting with Chelsea in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final.

Barcelona took an early two-goal lead, through their Netherlands international Lieke Martens.

Asisat Oshoala was in action for the final 11 minutes of the match after she came on as a 79th minute replacement for Aitana Bonmati.

On her debut season, the Nigerian had made history as she became the first African to score in the Champions League final and also the first for the Catalans in 2019, following a 4-1 defeat to Lyon.

This season, the Super Falcons star also achieved another historic feat when she netted Barcelona’s 100th Champions League goal in their quarter-final win over Manchester City in Monsa.

Barcelona and Chelsea will face off in the Champions League showpiece on May 16 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
