      Final to be a rematch of 18/19 and 21/22 games

      Lyon set up Champions League final against Barcelona

      2024/04/28 17:20

      Olympique Lyonnais defeated Paris Saint-Germain to book another Champions League final with Barcelona.

      Lyon went into the game with a 3-2 aggregate lead after the first leg at home but still needed to finish the job in Paris.

      Sonia Bompastor's side had the best possible start when Selma Bacha was able to sneak a shot that Constance Picaud should probably have done better with.

      That opener made it 4-2 to Lyon on aggregate but PSG showed spirit to get back into the tie. 

      Melchie Dumornay was guilty of losing the ball in midfield which led to the ever-dangerous Tabitha Chawinga keeping her cool to fire an effort into the corner.

      That goal opened the game up more as PSG sensed they could find a way to draw level on aggregate.

      But it was Lyon who managed to seal their spot in the final in Bilbao with an 81st-minute goal to make it 2-1 on the day and 5-3 on aggregate.

      The home side were able to exploit the space left by PSG and cut through the defence with Amel Majri laying off the ball for Dumornay to score the winning goal.

      Lyon will of course face Chelsea's conquerors Barcelona in the final in a repeat of both the 2018/19 and 2021/21 finals – games the French side won 4-1 and 3-1 respectively. 

      PARIS SG

      As a Lyon fan, I am beyond excited and relieved that we secured our spot in the Champions League final with a win against PSG. It was a tough game, but we managed to come out on top with a 2-1 victory. Our team showed great determination and spirit, despite the pressure and the early goal from PSG. Can't wait to face Barcelona in the final!

      As a Lyon fan, I am over the moon with this result! Our girls showed incredible determination and skill to secure another Champions League final spot. However, I can't help but feel disappointed with PSG's performance. They had a chance to turn things around, but unfortunately couldn't capitalize on it. Still, a fantastic game overall. Allez les Gones!
