Kheira Hamraoui scored the winning goal for Barcelona Ladies in the 62nd minute of the encounter.
Barcelona Women will now have to finish the job in the return match at the Miniestadi next week Sunday.
Before then, they will face Sevilla in a LigaIberdola clash on Wednesday.
Oshoala started the game from the bench and took the place of England international Toni Duggan in the 65th minute.
The Nigeria international has missed Barcelona last six games in all competitions due to a hamstring injury.
Before her injury, she scored five goals in five league appearances for the Blaugrana.
