With already five Women's Champions League titles to their name, the uphill challenge for OL in the 2019 Final in Budapest was to continue to write history, and they did just that. Having won the last three finals, the defending champions opened up the scoring in Budapest early when Dzsenifer Marozsan took a perfect cross from van de Sanden to give The Lyonnaises the early 1-0 lead in the 5th minute. The early goal was almost like a sign that foreshadowed what was coming. Ballon d'Or winner, Ada Hegerberg left her mark in the game early in the 14th minute when the Norwegian finished a great cross by van de Sanden to give OL the 2-0 lead. Seven minutes later it was once again Hegerberg who scored off an assist from Majri to extend the lead to 3-0. Not satisfied with two goals, Hegerberg went ahead and added another one to her account in the 30th minute. With her hat-trick, Hegerberd became the first player to score a hat-trick in a Women's Champions League final.
Barcelona was clearly outmatched, and it showed by the end of the first half. Over 500 Lyon supporters made the trip to Budapest to cheer on their team and their presence was felt all through the match.Despite a goal in the 89th minute by Barcelona's Oshoala, OL was able to close out the match and earn its sixth European title, and fourth in row. A monumental achievement!
"I fell a lot of joy, pride, and emotions. The heavy lifting was done in the first half. All we had to do in the second half is stay focused and what the Lyonnaises did was perfect. We will have to make room in the trophy case for this sixth European trophy. We think it's easy to go to the finals every year but it's a lot of work. All the teams continue to rise, but OL is still a step up."
