(Barcelona-Arsenal 4-1) Barcelona turned against the Premier League leaders, although Frieda Manoun (22) lit up a little hope for the guests.
And in his ninth game for the club, the Norwegian midfielder first found net masks for “The Gunners”. She and her teammates still had to see themselves beaten by the current champions in their first Champions League group stage match of the year.
Barcelona’s Caroline Graham Hansen started the match, while Ingrid Serstad Engin put the whole match on the bench for the hosts who deserved to leave the three points.
Barcelona mostly dominated and deservedly taken the lead by Mario Caldente after the half hour mark. Then they paid all the way.

Winger Oshoala received the ball in an offside position, but never waved to it. The striker finished 18 meters away, and the goalkeeper had to turn back. There Mario was ice cold as she took the ball with her before putting it safely in the net from a short distance.
2-0 came just before the break by Alexia Putillas. Oshoala scored the second top scorer goal of the match because she came out from the right, before playing well with the captain, who quickly entered the field.
This was also the situation when the teams went to the break.
Oshoala continued to excel after the break. Just two minutes into the second half, she made no mistake when playing alone against Arsenal’s last defender Manuela Zinsberger.
Then came the bright spot of that day that we saw through the eyes of the Norwegians. With the quarter back in action, Frieda Manum, who was ready for Arsenal’s game this summer, was in the right place at the right time on the field after a free kick, and reduced for the visitors.
Arsenal managed to push the hosts in the next few minutes, but when Lake Martins broke through with seven minutes left, there was no way back for the English. Then they also tolerated Alexia Butillas’ penalty miss in extra time.
