The Cameroon international was on target yet again as her Norwegian side thrashed the Zimbabwean star’s side on Thursday
Ajara Nchout continued her goalscoring form in Valerenga’s 7-0 win over Ruvimbo Mucherera’s Gintra Universitetas in Thursday’s Uefa Women’s Champions League second-round qualifying match.

On the other hand, US-born Zimbabwean Mucherera came into the encounter on the heel of her Champions League scoring debut in Gintra Universitetas’ 4-0 first-round win over Slovan Bratislava.

After the recess at Telsiai Stadium, the visitors continued their ruthless form in the second half as Stefanovic tapped in from close range her second of the match in the 61st minute of the encounter.
A minute later, Madsen’s effort off Synne Jensen’s cross was turned out by goalkeeper Meda Seskute but Nchout was in a good position to convert the rebound for Valerenga’s fifth of the match.
In the 69th minute, Vestina Neverdauskaite mistakenly turned a cross in from Spitse into her own net inside six yards before Jensen got on the scoresheet with a seventh to seal Valeranga’s win.

The result saw Valerenga and Nchout book a spot in the Round of 32, while Mucherera, who was in action for 81 minutes and could not save Gintra from being booted out of the competition.
