An attempted clearance hit Melanie Leupolz for own goal in 33 seconds before Alexia Putellas scored a penalty on 14 minutes to make it 2-0.

Aitiana Bonmati increased the lead in the 20th minute and Caroline Graham Hansen tapped in on 36 minutes to put the game far beyond Chelsea.

The exchanges were a little balanced in the second half but Chelsea could not do as much as get a consolation.

Barca had just last week, won the Spanish women’s title after going 26 games without dropping a point.

Oshoala, 26, who joined the club in 2019, now has two Spanish women’s league titles to her name, and has become the first-ever African woman to win the European Champions League title.
