Nigerian striker Asisat Oshola was on target as the UEFA Women Champions League returned to the centre stage on Wednesday.
Oshoala got one of the goals as Barcelona humbled PSV 4-1 at the Sport complex De Herdgang in Eindhoven.
The Spanish side needed little time to settle into the game as Jenni Hermoso found the back of the net with barely four minutes into the game
The second goal for the Braca Ladies did not come until the closing stages of the half when Van den Berg’s own goal made it 2-0 in favour of the visitors.

Smits got PSV their consolation goal a minute before regulation time, but it could not dent the Barcelona Ladies’ joy at the end of the encounter.
Oshoala got to the final of the Champion Legue with Barcelona last season
