Super Falcons

Oshoala’s Barcelona are champions of Spanish women league

Super Falcons Striker Asisat Oshoala has won the Spanish Women’s league title with FC Barcelona Femeni as the 2019/2020 Primera Iberdrola season comes to an end due to the current coronavirus crisis.

According to a statement by the Royal Spanish Football Federation, RFEF, the women’s league will not resume, implying that the Spanish federation has taken their decisions about promotions, relegations, championships, and European competitions.

The Royal Spanish Federation of Football, RFEF, therefore chose to finalise the Primera Iberdrola 2019/20, with FC Barcelona as champions and the league ending without relegations.

Asisat Oshoala arrived at FC Barcelona Femeni from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian F.C. initially on a loan deal but owing to her blistering goalscoring form, her contract with the Blaugranes was made permanent until 2022.
