Ada Hegerberg stars as Lyon defeat Barcelona to win Women’s UCL

Lyon continued their remarkable European dominance as Ballon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg’s first-half hat-trick against Barcelona helped the French giants secure a fourth consecutive Women’s Champions League title.

Victory saw England’s Lucy Bronze and Wales’ most-capped player Jess Fishlock get their hands on club women’s football’s biggest continental prize.

First-time finalists Barcelona almost led early on through Lionesses forward Toni Duggan, but after she fired narrowly wide, Lyon ruthlessly netted four times before the break.

Former Liverpool and Arsenal forward Asisat Oshoala netted a late consolation for the Catalan club in Hungary’s capital Budapest but they could do nothing to stop Lyon claiming a sixth European crown in eight years.
