Lyon of France defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 on the road to win the semifinals 5-3 on aggregate. They will play defending champions Barcelona of Spain in the final.

French side Lyon, who hold the record for most UEFA Women's Champions League wins with eight, have reached another final in Europe's premier women's club competition.

Lyon will take on Barcelona, who beat Chelsea 2-1 on aggregate in the other semi-final, in a match to be played at the San Mamés stadium in the Basque city of Bilbao on 25 May at 18:00.

The French side had gone into the final with a 3-2 lead after the first leg, which they built on to beat the team from the capital 2-1 with a goal from Selma Bacha. Tabitha Chawinga pulled PSG level on the stroke of half-time, but a late strike from talented Haitian Melchie Dumornay sealed Lyon's place in the final.

"We have to go all the way and win every competition we take part in," said Lyon coach Sonia Bompastor, whose team also comfortably leads PSG in the French league.

"The result of the first game meant we had to open up and take risks because we needed to score," admitted PSG coach Jocelyn Precheur.

Barcelona booked their place in the final on Saturday when they beat Chelsea 2-0 in London, overturning a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.

It ensures that the trophy will once again go to one of the two teams that have dominated the competition in recent seasons, with the last eight Champions Leagues between them.

The French club's tally of eight Champions League victories is comfortably a record. No other women's team has won the title more than four times.

This time it will be their turn in the Basque Country in northern Spain. San Mamés, with a capacity of over 53,000, will be the perfect venue for Barcelona's fifth final in six years.

It will be the fifth time the two teams have met and the third Champions League final, with the French side always winning.

The first time they met was in the quarterfinals of the 2017/2018 season, a match in which the French emerged victorious both at the Groupama Stadium (2-1) and at the Mini Estadi (0-1).

They then met again in the 2019 final in Budapest (1-4) and the 2022 final in Turin (1-3).

Although the prize money has increased in recent years, it's still far from what's available in men's soccer. The winner will receive 350,000 euros, while the runner-up will take home 200,000 euros. The winning club in the Women's Champions League will receive a total of 1.4 million euros for its entire participation.
