Lyon did what seemingly no team could this season, dominating Barcelona 3-1 to clinch the Champions League trophy Saturday.

The French side put Barcelona under pressure early, as Amandine Henry put Lyon up 1-0 in the game’s sixth minute. The French national team midfielder launched a stunning curler from far outside the box.

Lyon doubled its lead in the 23rd minute as Ada Hegerberg headed a lofted cross past the Barcelona keeper, deflating the Spanish side.

The situation went from bad to worse for Barcelona in the 33rd minute when Catarina Macario finished off a Lyon effort spurred by sloppy defending from Barcelona. The finish from the USWNT star put her team up 3-0.

Barcelona showed a glimmer of hope for a comeback late in the first half, when Alexia Putellas knocked in a cross to keep her side in the game.

But the 3-1 scoreline held through the second half despite Barcelona’s best efforts, and Lyon celebrated as the final whistle blew.

“This is what I’ve dreamed of ever since I was a little girl,” an emotional Lindsey Horan said after the match.

Saturday’s win marks Lyon’s record eighth Champions League title.
