Ajibade missing in Atletico Madrid’s Victory over Barcelona

Newly signed Atletico striker, Rasheedat Ajibade failed to make an appearance for her side as they stunned Barcelona in their Supercup semifinal.

Las Colchoneras defeated a tough Barcelona side who has not lost a game the entire season. They edged out the Spanish champions on penalties.

Despite being a second-half substitute, Oshoala couldn't stop her side from slipping to defeat.

As usual, the Catalan dominated play in the first half but couldn't break a dogged opponent. They had the opportunity to take the lead on two occasions but were denied by Hedvig Lindahl in Atletico’s goal.

Athletico grew stronger in the second half and took the lead in the 66th minute courtesy of a penalty from Merel Van Dongen.

Las Colchoneras were on course for a stunning victory until Alexia Putellas struck in the 90th minute to send the game into extra-time, according to Soccernet.ng.

Neither side could find the winner in the 30 minutes, and the game went into penalties. And it was Dani González side that held their nerve to secure their spot in the final, where they will meet Levante, Soccernet.ng reports.
