Ada Hegerberg said Lyon “let the football talk” after the French side reasserted itself as the dominant force in European women’s football in style with three first-half goals to beat holders Barcelona in a blistering final.
Hegerberg was the star, the Champions League record goalscorer holding up the ball in the buildup to the first goal from Amandine Henry, scoring the second and providing an assist for the third, scored by Catarina Macario. The usually fluid Barcelona struggled to cope with the force of Lyon on the transition and the French side’s careful game management of a two-goal lead, once Alexia Putellas pulled one back after the break.
