Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala was on target again as Barcelona Ladies beat league rivals Atletico Madrid Ladies 3-2, in the semi-final of the maiden edition of the Spanish Women Super Cup on Thursday night.

The Catalan club went into the tie needing a win to reach the final, however, they started on a back foot as Toni Duggan gave Atletico an early lead four minutes into the encounter.

However, Barcelona staged a fightback and broke the resolve of Atletico when Patri Guijarro grabbed the equaliser in the 12th minute before Lieke Martens ensured the lead 16 minutes later in the goal-laden first half.

Oshoala increases her side lead when she found back of the net in the 43rd minute to put her team 3-1 ahead but Charlyn Corral scored for Atletico Madrid Ladies in the 62nd minute.
