Lyon are through to their 11th Women’s Champions League final after sealing a 5-3 aggregate victory over compatriots Paris Saint-Germain.

The record eight-time winners scored three times in the final 10 minutes of last week’s first leg to take a narrow 3-2 lead into the return fixture at Parc des Princes.

However, they were quicker out of the blocks in the second leg, with just three minutes on the clock when Selma Bacha drilled home from range for her first Champions League strike in five-and-a-half years.

Tabitha Chawinga responded before the break to reduce PSG’s aggregate deficit to a single goal, but Melchie Dumornay put the tie beyond doubt nine minutes from time, as Sonia Bompastor’s side set up a final showdown with Barcelona on May 25.

Data debrief

Lyon continued their dominance over PSG in Champions League semi-final encounters, having now progressed from each of their last four such ties.

The eight-time champions lost their first two semi-finals they contested in this competition, but have now won each of the last 10, and will seek a record-extending ninth title in Bilbao next month.
