Barcelona women team wins Champions League

Aitana Bonmati

Aitana Bonmati and substitute Alexia Putellas made the difference for Barcelona

Barcelona edged a tense 2-0 win in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final against Lyon to retain their title.

The Catalan giants won the competition only 12 months ago, but Lyon remained the one team they were yet to get the better of. That all changed on Saturday in Bilbao as Ballon d’Or winner Aitana Bonmati made the difference in a nervy affair at San Mames.

Deep in stoppage time, substitute Alexia Putellas made it two to put the result beyond doubt and celebrations ensued inside the stadium. Lyon, the giants of the competition for so many years, were toppled by Barcelona at last.
