Barcelona Women v Lyon Women: Prediction, Tips and Odds

There is a blockbuster match on the cards in the Women's Champions League final on Saturday as defending champions Barcelona take on eight-time winners Lyon.

For the third time since 2019, Barcelona and Lyon will clash in the final of the Women's Champions League and it should be a match to remember at the San Mames in Bilbao.

Lyon won both of their previous two finals against Barca, prevailing 4-1 in 2019 and 3-1 in 2022, and the Spaniards have never beaten their French rivals.

The odds suggest that could change on Saturday, though, with Barcelona rated as favourites to beat Lyon in 90 minutes and lift the trophy for the third time in four seasons.

Lyon Women or Draw double chance - 7/4

Barcelona have reached each of the last three Women's Champions League finals prior to this season and the one final they failed to win in that period was against Lyon in the 2021-22 campaign.

Indeed, Lyon have proven to be a bit of a bogey team for Barcelona, who have never beaten their French opponents.

When the sides met in the final in 2022, it was expected that Barcelona would turn things on their head and finally get the better of Lyon.

What followed was a comfortable 3-1 win for Lyon in Turin and it feels like they are once again being underestimated.

Barcelona are undoubtedly one of the best teams in Europe and are chasing an unprecedented quadruple heading into this match after winning the league title, Spanish Cup and Spanish Supercup.

But outside of Spain, they are not quite as imperious and they lost the first leg of their semi-final tie with Chelsea 1-0 at home last month.

That suggested a hint of vulnerability in this Barca team and it is not a foregone conclusion that they will beat Lyon.

Winning the Women's Champions League is in Lyon's DNA and they are unbeaten in the competition this season, taking down PSG 5-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

Whether they can put Barcelona to the sword again or not remains to be seen but at the very least they can avoid defeat in 90 minutes and make it interesting.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals - 13/10

With such a wealth of attacking quality on show in this match, it is hard to envisage anything but a high-scoring fixture.

Each of the two Women's Champions League finals between these sides saw both teams score and featured over 2.5 goals and at 13/10, that looks like a decent bet for Saturday's fixture.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has been a winning selection in six of Lyon's last seven matches and this should be an entertaining battle.

Kadidiatou Diani to score at anytime - 9/2

From Salma Paralluelo to the returning Ada Hegerberg, this final will feature some of the best attacking players on the planet but it is Kadidiatou Diani who makes an appeal in the goalscorer markets.

The Lyon winger is the leading goalscorer in the Women's Champions League this season with eight goals in 10 matches.

She scored the decisive goal in Lyon's league play-off final win over PSG last Friday and also found the net in the first leg of their Women's Champions League semi-final against the same opponents in April.

Her pace and trickery could cause Barcelona problems in a tense final and she can rise to the occasion with a goal.
