SAN SEBASTIÁN – SAN SEBASTIÁLyon extended its European dominance by beating Wolfsburg 3-1 to win its fifth straight women's Champions League title on Sunday.

Eugénie Le Sommer, Saki Kumagai and Sara Bjork Gunnarsdóttir scored for Lyon as it clinched a record-extending seventh Champions League trophy.

Wolfsburg, seeking its third title after back-to-back triumphs in 2013 and 2014, got on the board with Alex Popp after its French rival had opened a two-goal lead in the first half.

Wolfsburg also lost the final to Lyon in 2016 and 2018.

Le Sommer opened the scoring in the 25th minute before Kumagai added to the lead shortly before halftime.

Gunnarsdóttir sealed the victory in the 88th after Popp had got Wolfsburg on the board in the 58th.

“We played a great season, we can be proud, and I can proud to be part of this team,” Popp said.

Lyon's Le Sommer, Wendie Renard and Sarah Bouhaddi each won their seventh European title, moving them one clear of the men's record held by Paco Gento.
