Barcelona Women and Lyon Women have met each other on four occasions, with three of those clashes taking place in the UEFA Champions League (UCL). The La Liga giants have not only never defeated their Ligue 1 counterparts, but have also lost a UCL final against them. The Blaugrana were thrashed 4-1 on that occasion.
After finishing their group on top, Barcelona defeated arch-rivals Real Madrid in the quarter-finals before registering a 5-3 win on aggregate against Wolfsburg in the semis. 2021 Ballon d'Or winner Alexia Putellas inspired her side to an emphatic 5-1 win at home before they suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat away in the second leg.
Similarly, Lyon also breezed through to the knockout stages despite suffering one defeat to Bayern Munich in the group stages. However, their toughest challenge came in the quarters. They suffered a 2-1 defeat to Juventus in the first leg before mounting a comeback in their home leg to win the clash 4-3 on aggregate. Meanwhile, their semi-final clash against PSG was relatively more straightforward as they won both legs.
