Full time:Wolfsburg 1-3 Lyon

Lyon are European Champions for a fifth season running, the best, the bench mark, winning is embedded in their DNA!

Popp had given Die Wölfinnen hope with her goal in the second half, but the well-oiled machine of Les Lyonnaises were far the superior side this evening!

Cascarino and Le Sommer caused havoc for Wolfsburg in the first half, in the second their quality held out. 

Stephan Lerch's side can hold their heads high, they gave it a real go in the second half.
