Barcelona will be aiming for a European glory this time, having ended as runner-up in the last edition of the Champions League.
A goal from super-sub Asisat Oshoala earned some bragging rights for the Blaugrana in last season’s final against a star-studded Lyon team.
She will be hoping to continue her impressive scoring run against Atlético Madrid on Friday and possibly help the team win their first ever Champions League title.
