Chelsea (editor's note: who could claim the boys / girls double this year) did not weigh very heavily in this final played behind closed doors in Gothenburg (Sweden), with four goals conceded in 36 minutes. The first one came after just 34 seconds, and a csc from Leupolz. Alexia Putellas (14th sp), Aitana Bonmati (20th), and Norwegian Caroline Graham Hansen (36th) then extinguished all suspense in this one-sided meeting. Two years ago, Barcelona suffered almost the same setback against Lyon in Budapest, with four goals conceded in the first half hour and an almost equally heavy setback (1-4).

For the first time since 2014, no French club was in the final.

Olympique Lyonnais, who remained on five consecutive triumphs, was indeed eliminated in the quarter-finals by PSG Olivier Echouafni (1-0, 1-2).

The corner of blue sky nevertheless came from Kheira Hamraoui, finally titular after four missed appointments.

Suspended in 2015 with the capital club (finalist), then in 2019 with Barça, the French international had not been aligned in the finals won with Lyon in 2017 and 2018.

Finally, it is also the first time that a Spanish club has won the title in the girls category.

Since the creation of the event in 2002, Germany (9 trophies) remains ahead of France, second thanks to the seven titles of OL.

Sweden (2), England (Arsenal in 2007) and therefore Spain complete the list.
