Olympique Lyonnais added to a legend that does not seem to have an upcoming final and justly won their fifth consecutive title in the Women’s Champions League, against Wolfsburg who spent his fortune in the semifinals against Barcelona.
The French team went all out from the first minute and locked up a Wolfburg that came to repeat a strategy that came out round against the Barça team (1-0).
That game was very present in the final, the Germans, with almost nothing, eliminated a superior Barcelona and Lyon was not willing to suffer such a punishment, so that between Le Sommer, Marozsan and the balls hanging from Renard they entertained an eleven Teuton forced to wear down his imposing physique.
The French reached the rival area but did not specify and Wolfsburg began to grow as the match progressed, to the same extent that Lyon became guilty of nervousness when verifying the unexpected solvency of their opponent.
Eugene Le Sommer came to the rescue when things got more complicated for Lyon and unblocked the final midway through the first half, after receiving a ball in the area and beating Abt, who had stopped his shot in the first instance but could not with the second, crossed to the network, with which the French achieved her sixth goal in five games and put the clash on her face for the finery.
Lyon would deliver the final blow two minutes before the break, in a great attack action in which Cascarino shone, the ball fell twenty meters from the German goal into the boots of Kumagai, who sent a shoe hitting an Abt post , who could not do anything to avoid both the Japanese.
Wolsfburg was very touched by this goal and accused it in the first minutes of the second half.
It was a final and the German team, the second best on the continent according to UEFA, was going to fight when they closed the gap with a Popp header, in one of the few defensive errors conceded by a Lyon who would have to suffer.
The French team knew how to do it and, despite some suspenseful attacks, such as a shot from Wolter that almost entered, they did not suffer excessively and finished the task with two minutes to go with the goal of the Icelandic Gunnarsdottir, with which the Olimpique could still enjoy a new and prestigious title for its showcases.
