Olympique Lyonnais are through to their 11th Champions League final following their 2-1 (5-3 aggregate) triumph over PSG on Sunday.

An early goal from Selma Bacha in the third minute set Lyon ahead 4-2 on aggregate before their fellow French opponents got one back from Tabitha Chawiga minutes before half time.

It was Melchie Dumornay however, with a late goal that ensured Lyon will be the ones to face Barcelona at San Mames next month.

Lyon made the first leg of the semi-final a tough challenge for themselves, conceding two goals at home and failing to score until the 80th minute.

But they pulled it back however, coming from behind to score two goals in six minutes, setting themselves up with a 3-2 lead on aggerate for their trip to Parces des Princes.

Just 125 seconds into the second leg, Bacha scored off the back of a set piece situation extending her team’s advantage.

It was a close game, with PSG battling hard to stay in contention for the final and they were rewarded for their efforts in the 41st minute.

Chawiga scored her 28th goal of the season, whipping the ball into the bottom right corner to equalise.

PSG knew they still had further to go to equalise on aggregate however, and the second half proved to be just as end-to-end as the first.

It was on the counter in the 81st minute when Dumornay finished off the game with her second strike of both legs to ensure her team’s place in the final.

Sonia Bompastor’s side will now be hoping to win their ninth Champions League when they face Barcelona in Bilbao on 25 May.
