Women’s Champions League Final
May 18, 2019 - Lyon face Barcelona in the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League. The showpiece match takes place at the Groupama Arena in Budapest, Hungary.
French club Lyon hold the record for titles (5), consecutive titles (3) and final appearances (8), all since 2010, and have become the first team to reach four finals in a row. Their 2016 and 2017 triumphs both went to penalties while their 2018 victory was achieved in extra time.
A win for Lyon would also give them a fourth treble, having already secured domestic League and Cup titles.
Barcelona are Spain’s first representative in the final, joining a list that includes Germany, France, Sweden, Russia, England and Denmark. No club have won both men’s and women’s UEFA Champions Leagues.
