Barcelona won 5-0 with Oshoala getting on the scoresheet in the 61st minute with her first touch of the ball.
‘Agba baller’ celebrated her class act as only she can.
She has followed up on her brace against Villarreal in the Spanish league at the weekend.
The 29-year-old forward is gunning for a record-extending sixth CAF Player of the Year Award next month in Morocco.
Ucheibe, who is one of seven Super Falcons players nominated for the CAF Player of the Year Award, was surprisingly not on the matchday squad for Benfica.
Today, Chiamaka Nnadozie’s Paris FC will welcome BK Hacken of Sweden in another Champions League group game.
