While Asisat Oshoala has been nursing an injury and has not played since 10 November, Atletico Madrid's African players have been shining in the Women's Superliga. The Madrilenians crushed Real Betis (6-1) on Saturday in a match of the 14th day. The Nigerian Rasheedat Busayo Ajibade opened the scoring in the 10th minute. She scored twice just before the break to give Atletico Madrid a 3-1 lead.
South Africa's Chrestinah Thembi Kgatlana came on with 15 minutes to go and was also part of the goal-fest. She scored her team's fifth goal, their third in the league. Atletico Madrid are third in the league table with 28 points, although they are still a long way behind Barcelona, who have won 14 games in 14.
