Oshoala fails to save Barca from defeat in Women’s UCL

Asisat Oshoala fired blanks as Barcelona suffered a 1-0 defeat to German side Wolfsburg in the  semi-final of  UEFA Women’s Champions League on Tuesday.

Fridolina Rolfo netted early in the second half for the Germans to set up a final clash against either Paris Saint-Germain or four-time defending champion Lyon.

The French clubs will meet in the other semi-final on Wednesday night.

Wolfsburg won its two European titles in 2013 and 2014.

Barcelona lost last year’s final to Lyon and has yet to win the competition.

The Spanish club dominated much of the match at Anoeta Stadium but couldn’t capitalise on its scoring opportunities.

Rolfo scored the winning goal with a shot from close range in the 58th minute.
