Olympique Lyon wins the Champions League


No chance for FC Barcelona: For the eighth time in their club history, the women of Olympique Lyon secure the most important title in club football. The final will be decided early in Turin.

The players from Olympique Lyon don't give defending champions FC Barcelona a chance

The footballers from Olympique Lyon took the defending champions from FC Barcelona off the Champions League throne with full force encountered After just over half an hour, the record winners were clearly 3-0 up after their 3-1 (3-1) win. For the French it was their eighth Champions League title.

In the absence of Germany international Dzsenifer Marozsan, who was out with a cruciate ligament rupture, Amandine Henry scored a dream goal (6th minute), Ada Hegerberg (23 .) and Catarina Macario (33rd) scored for Lyon. Only world footballer Alexia Putellas (41st) was successful for Barca. “They were the favorites. I'm very happy, that's the best title we can win,” said Henry after the game. 

Bitter Déjà-vu

Barcelona, ​​the top favorites who have been so dominant for two years, showed a shockingly weak first half in front of over 41,000 fans in the sold-out Juventus Stadium. The Catalans, who won the Spanish league without defeat or even a draw, missed out on their second Champions League triumph after beating Chelsea last year. It was also a bitter déjà vu: Barca lost 4-1 to Olympique Lyon in Budapest in the 2019 final.

The last Bundesliga team to lose was champions VfL Wolfsburg in the semifinals against Barcelona. In the new season, Wolfsburg and FC Bayern as well as Eintracht Frankfurt will be competing internationally again.
