French sides PSG and Lyon will face off in the French capital as they battle for a place in the final of the Uefa Women’s Champions League.

PSG haven’t beaten Lyon in this competition since the quarter-finals in 2020/21, but the home side will take a lot of encouragement from last week’s first leg, where two goals from Marie-Antoinette Katoto had seemingly put them in a commanding lead until the final 10 minutes.

Nevertheless, eight-time winners Lyon staged a remarkable comeback in their home leg, with late goals from Kadidiatou Diani, Melchie Dumornay and Amel Majri completing a stunning six-minute turnaround.

Today’s winner will join Barcelona in the competition’s final in Bilbao on 25 May, after the Catalan side won a controversial second leg 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, with Kadeisha Buchanan’s sending off later referred to by Emma Hayes as the “worst decision in Women’s Champions League history”.

Emma Hayes slams ‘worst decision in Champions League history’ as Chelsea ‘robbed’ place in final

14:45 , Chris Wilson

And Emma Hayes said her Chelsea team were on the wrong end of the “worst decision in Women’s Champions League history” when referring to that aforementioned second yellow card.

Hayes believed Chelsea were “robbed” after the referee Iuliana Demetrescu sent off defender Kadeisha Buchanan for a second yellow card early in the second half, with the semi-final tie in the balance on aggregate following Chelsea’s narrow victory in Spain last week.

Barcelona were then awarded a late penalty when Aitana Bonmati was brought down by a combination of Jess Carter and Ashley Lawrence – a decision Hayes said was “equally soft” – and Fridolina Rolfo converted to send Barcelona through to the Bilbao final and a shot at a third title in four years.
