Barcelona defeated Sporting Huelva 0-4 in the quarter-final of the Queen’s Cup thanks to 2 goals by Asisat Oshoala and goals by Jeni Hermoso and Caroline Graham Hansen. Barcelona dominated the game from beginning till the end and were rewarded with a place in the semi-final.
Barca had a lot of goal scoring chances to score early on, but they couldn’t break the deadlock. Asisat Oshoala came closest in the 22nd minute with a one on one chance, but the keeper saved the attempt.
Later, Jenni Hermoso also had a one on one encounter with the keeper, but the ball went to the right of the goal.
Asisat Oshoala finally broke the deadlock in the 43rd minute with a headed goal off a cross.
Jenni Hermoso doubled Barca’s lead 2 minutes into the second half with a great shot from her left foot.
Caroline Graham Hansen chipped the ball beautifully over the keeper to give Barca a 0-3 advantage in the 67th minute, before Oshoala sealed the victory for Barca with her second goal in the 70th minute.
(Another Nigeria, Peace Efih, was an unused substitute for Huelva).
