🏆 Lyon wins Women’s Champions League title

French Lyon regained its European title after beating Barcelona 3-1 on Saturday night to win the UEFA Women’s Champions League Cup in Turin.

This victory marks Lyon’s eighth Champions League title and extends his impressive record on the European stage.

The French team advanced just six minutes after midfielder Henry fired a superb shot from outside the area. The 32-year-old picked up a loose ball over 25 yards and pulled the trigger, sending her shot into the top corner.

Ada Hegerberg doubled her lead in the 23rd minute, adding to her impressive performance since returning from injury in October 2021. The Norwegian was sidelined for 21 months after suffering an ACL injury in January 2020. Ten minutes later, they scored a goal. The third is by Catarina Macario.

Barcelona gave a lifeline with Alexia Putillas’ strike just before the break, but it will prove to be just a consolation target as the European royals dominate once again.
