European final evening this Saturday in Turin between FC Barcelona and Olympique Lyonnais in the final of the Women’s Champions League. After eliminating PSG in the semi-finals and Juventus Turin in the quarter, the Lyonnaises, winners of the cup with big ears on 7 occasions, returned to the Allianz Stadium to challenge the defending champions Barcelona this time. In the previous rounds, the Blaugranas had defeated Wolfsburg and Real Madrid.
Intense start to the match for OL who quickly opened the scoring with a magnificent shot from Amandine Henry from outside the area (6th), but who saw the Canadian right side Ellie Carpenter leave her place by being evacuated on a stretcher (11th). OL then unfolded: Ada Hegerberg, with a fine header, doubled the score (24th), before Catarina Macario scored OL’s third goal (33rd). Alexia Putellas restarted the game before the break (40th). But, despite a few chances and 7 minutes of additional time in the second half, the score changed more. After having controlled the meeting, the Lyonnaises therefore logically found the throne which they had lost last year after having kept it for five years, from 2016 to 2020.
