Lyon captain Wendie Renard is approaching her 10th Champions League final with Lyon on Saturday “like it’s the first,” she said on Friday, pledging to “hurt if it’s necessary to hurt” against Barcelona in Turin. A game that looks like the ultimate challenge for Lyon, who, in the event of victory, would restore the past decade’s relentless hierarchy, marked by seven coronations in ten seasons. But OL is no longer alone and Barça is firmly entrenched in the landscape. “We’re coming into a final with two big names who have two great runs. For me a final is 50-50, there’s no favourite, it’s up to us to make the history of that game if we want to lift the trophy. ” “It’s up to us to hurt ourselves when we have to hurt ourselves. Barcelona are a great team, they’re the defending champions and we have a lot of respect for them. But our story, we’re here to write it. We. ” “We’re not here to prove what we can do. There’s two teams, one trophy, but I’m hungry so I’ll do whatever it takes to come back.”
On the pitch, Barcelona Women approach this final in steamroller mode after a season of 30 wins in 30 games in their domestic championship.
