Barcelona have won the Women's Champions League for the second time in three years after rallying from two goals behind to defeat VfL Wolfsburg 3-2 in a dramatic final in Eindhoven in front of a sold-out crowd.

Swedish defender, Fridolina Rolfo scored the game-winning goal from close range in the 70th minute to cap off Barcelona's incredible comeback after falling behind 2-0 at the interval on Saturday.

The Spanish league champions quickly set the record straight in the second half as Patricia Guijarro headed in two goals in the first five minutes after the break.

Jonatan Giraldez's team has now won two of the previous three finals after earning their first triumph over Chelsea in 2021, solidifying their position as Lyon's main competition. Lyon has won eight consecutive championships.

Barcelona secured victory with two-time Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas on the bench until the final stages, as she continues to find form after the knee injury that had sidelined her for most of the season.

Oshoala nets hat-trick

Sports Brief also reported on Oshoala continuing her blistering form in the Spanish Primera Division, scoring a hat-trick against Granadilla Tenerife on January 29.

This latest triple came less than a week after she netted three times in Barcelona Femeni’s 7-0 trouncing of Levante Las Planas.

The 28-year-old has now found the back of the net nine times in her last five matches for the Catalan giants, bringing her total to 13 goals in the league.
