Sarah Bouhaddi prevailed as a Women's Champions League final shoot-out became a battle of the Lyon and PSG goalkeepers in Cardiff.

Lyon went on the attack form the start, with PSG content to soak up the pressure and break on the counter-attack, but they suffered a major blow when American worldwide Alex Morgan had to be substituted after 23 minutes. While Paris was on the front foot in the first half, Lyon began to press as the second half wore on.

Lyon now have back-to-back trebles having collected the French league and cup domestically.

Victory means Lyon have matched Frankfurt's record of winning the competition four times, having already equalled the German side's total of six finals.
