Barça are through to the Spanish Super Cup Final against Real Sociedad after a thrilling 3-2 win over Atlético Madrid. Patri, Martens and Oshoala got the goals against the side that they will also be meeting in the quarter finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
A familiar face, England international and former Barça player Toni Duggan fired Atlético into a very early year, but the Catalans quickly regrouped and had already hit the crossbar before an absolute cracker from Patri levelled things up at 1-1.
Barça were on a roll. Graham latched onto a rebound and set up Martens to score her first goal since returning from injury. The Dutchwoman turned scorer to supplier as her cross was headed in by Oshoala to make it three before the break.
The Nigerian was the most lively player of the second half, having a possible second goal disallowed before Charlyn converted from an angle to get the red-and-whites back to within one goal.
But Barça held on for the win and will now play for the trophy on Sunday at noon, once again at the Estadio Helmántico in Salamanca.
