📝 Lyon 4-1 Barcelona: Hegerberg makes Champions League final history

Lyon brushed aside Barcelona to secure their fourth successive Women’s Champions League title on Saturday.

OL were seen as favourites heading into the tie, but Barça were worthy opponents after beating Bayern Munich in the semi-final.

However, their resistance lasted just ten minutes after Budapest-born Dzsenifer Marozsán opened the scoring.


Then it turned into the Ada Hegerberg show.

She doubled the lead on 14 minutes, firing home another simple tap-in before bagging her brace five minutes later.

Hegerberg secured her hat-trick shortly after, becoming the second player to score a first half treble since Ferenc Puskas in 1962.


Barcelona had second half chances through Toni Duggan and Lieke Martens, before Asisat Oshoala netted a consolation late on.

That’s now six titles in nine years for Lyon, whose European dominance shows no sign of wavering.
