Osura scored, but Atletico Madrid ended Barcelona’s 28-game winning streak


The Nigeria international team has created a sensational record since the start of the season, but they lost on Tuesday night.

Asisat Oshoala hit the target, but Barcelona was suppressed 4-3 by Atletico Madrid in the La Liga women’s football match on Tuesday.

Before this game, Brauglanes celebrated the Triple Crown after defeating Levante 4-2 in the Copa del Rey final on Sunday.

This victory also allowed them to extend their winning streak to 28 games in all competitions in the 2020-21 season.

However, in the match with the mattress manufacturer, their invincible run ended in a seven-ball thriller.

After beating Levante 1-0 at home last time, Dani Gonzalez’s women started the game with bright notes.

This paid off as Amanda Sampedro gave them the lead after 12 minutes of profiting from an assist from Deyna Castellanos.

The lead lasted only 7 minutes, as the visiting team equalized after Bruna Vilamala was layup by defender Jana Fernandez.

Nine minutes before the intermission, Oshoala led Lluis Cortes’ team to a pleasant result thanks to the outstanding performance of captain Vicky Losada.

This effort enabled her to end the seven-ball drought. In addition, this is her 16th goal in 22 games in the Spanish elite division.

Like a house on fire, the home team returned strongly in the second half, and two quick goals meant that they regained the lead.

First, French forward Emelyne Laurent converted Kylie Strom’s cross in the 58th minute, and Laurent added a second eight minutes later. This time, the assist was Venezuelan star Castellano.

In the 74th minute, Marta grabbed a rebound for Alexia to equalize the score.

However, in the 80th minute, Castellanos had the final say on Atletico Madrid.

Osura, the African Female Player of the Year, played from start to finish, and her compatriot Rashida Ajibad played 46 minutes for the hosts.

Elsewhere, Cameroon forward Ajara Nchout was introduced by Ludmila of Brazil in the 89th minute.

Barcelona has been crowned the champion of the Spanish women’s top league.

Osura and her teammates hope to return to victory when they host Madrid in the next game on Sunday morning.
