UEFA Champions League Cup among women's teams won the French "Lyon" in Kiev!

French footballers in extra time in the Kiev final pressed German "Wolfsburg".

Dynamo Kyiv Stadium named after V. Lobanovsky had the honor to host the final of the 17th draw of the Women's Champions League. The hospitable metropolitan arena became the battlefield of Lyon and Wolfsburg. The stands of the stadium were filled almost completely, which created a comfortable atmosphere during the match. 

From the start of the match, the Lyon players acted more sharply, controlling the ball more. The players of "Wolfsburg" were focused on rapid counterattacks, but did not create a special danger. In the first half, the French scored six shots on goal, the most dangerous of which were shots by Bronze and Hegerberg.

In the second half, "Lyon" added in the team plan and looked much stronger than the German team. The French regularly broke into the penalty area of ​​"Wolfsburg", and at the end of the second half actually registered there.

In the 71st minute, Henry sent the ball into the goal after a corner, but Popp took the ball out of the line. At the same time, there are suspicions that the game shell still crossed the line completely, and the referee should have scored a goal.

By the end of regular time, the Germans were already openly fighting, although one of their counterattacks ended in a dangerous blow to Harder. In the 83rd minute, "Lyon" could score again, but Schult parried the shot of Le Somme, who closed the shot from the flank. The French continued to storm, but the Germans still brought the game to overtime.

In extra time, the Kyiv audience witnessed an incredible drama. In the 93rd minute, the German striker Harder opened the scoring with a long shot, and did not do without a ricochet from the opponent. However, Wolfsburg midfielder Popp soon received a second yellow card and left his team in the minority.

After that, the French women broke the course of the game. In the 98th minute, after a great pass, Henri burst into the penalty area on the right and struck Schult with a powerful shot. In the next attack, Le Somme scored, closing the shot from van de Sanden, who shortly before came on as a substitute.
