Lyon claimed a fourth successive UEFA Women's Champions League crown after recording a 4-1 victory against Barcelona at Budapest’s Ferencvaros Stadion.

Reynald Pedros’s side raced into a four-goal lead after just 30 minutes with Ada Hegerberg bagging a hat-trick after Dzsenifer Marozsan opened the scoring on five minutes.

Nigeria international Asisat Oshoala netted a late consolation for Barça, who were competing in their first Women's Champions League final.

The success marks Lyon’s sixth European crown in eight years.
