Olympique Lyonnais Feminin continued its dominance of Europe Sunday, beating German power Wolfsburg 3-1 in Spain in the UEFA Women's Champions League final for its fifth consecutive continental title.

Lyon players pose with the trophy after winning the Women's Champions League final match against Wolfsburg at the Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastian, Spain.

England striker Taylor went close to adding a fourth for the dominant French side in second-half stoppage time but was denied by a good low save from Wolfsburg keeper Friederike Abt.

The imperious French side excelled in the first half, taking a two-goal lead through Eugenie Le Sommer and Saki Kumagai, before defending well to stop a valiant Wolfsburg from forcing the game to extra-time.

It was Wolfsburg's first loss in 41 games, since a 4-2 home defeat in the Champions League quarterfinals against Lyon in March 2019.

Lyon were by far the better side in the early stages and their pressure told when Le Sommer broke the deadlock in the 25th minute.

The two-time European champions never got any closer than that, though, with Lyon substitute Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir putting the match out of reach with just two minutes of regular time to go.

Lyon, who have appeared in nine of the last 11 finals, winning seven, showed their squad depth in the showpiece event, in which they were missing Amandine Henry, Griege M'bock, Nikita Parris and 2018 Ballon d'Or Feminin victor Ada Hegerberg.

"We played a great season, we can be proud, and I can proud to be part of this team", Popp said. "We've got the strongest squad in the world".

"It's actually quite hard to believe we have managed our fifth straight title, to be honest", Bouhaddi said. "We're super proud of ourselves, it was a very hard competition. if you sign for Lyon, you sign up to be a victor", Bouhaddi said.

The French champions lost former Ballon d'Or victor Ada Hegerberg to a knee injury earlier in the season, and a red card for Nikita Parris in the semi-final against PSG saw her suspended for the final against the German champions.

Despite Wolfsburg's best efforts, there is little to suggest that any other European club can knock Lyon off their perch, and Renard intends to enjoy the club's success. You battle year in, year out for this trophy.

The forward scored in the 2018 final win over Wolfsburg and also in the 2012 triumph over another German side, Frankfurt. "When you look back we should have done that from the beginning". "We're bringing it back for the fans", she said.
