Women’s UCL: Barcelona vs Lyon Odds, Prediction & Picks

  • Lyon has won the women’s UCL a record seven times.
  • Barcelona recently won their league title with impressive all-wins in their game.
  • The last time they faced each other, Lyon emerged the victor.

The Women’s UCL final will be held in Turin, Italy, on May 21. It will feature the best European women’s football team of the past decade and the team that defeated them last year and is now attempting to retain their title.

Lyon is the first team to reach ten UEFA women’s club finals in 13 seasons, but they are now in a position they never faced when they only had a handful of titles. 

Lyon was not considered an underdog when they played Turbine Potsdam in Getafe in 2010 and lost on penalties to a team that had previously won the tournament. Despite being the first French team to reach that stage and facing a club from the most powerful country at the time. 

This was demonstrated by the fact that the OL performed better during regulation. After defeating Potsdam and Frankfurt with relative ease in 2011 and 2012, respectively, Lyon entered every subsequent final as a slight or significant favorite. 

Wolfsburg’s 2013 victory over Lyon was unexpected. Likewise, Barcelona’s 4-0 halftime deficit in the 2019 championship game was unexpected, but not as much as OLs.

However, this time, Barcelona is the team to beat in regards to the competition odds, even though their perfect season ended at Wolfsburg in the semi-final second leg. Since doing to Chelsea in 2019 what Lyon did to them, they haven’t slowed down much. 

On the other hand, Levante gave OL trouble in Round 2; they lost at Bayern in the group stage, they had to overcome a first-leg deficit against Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain pushed them to the limit.

Especially since Ada Hegerberg’s inspiring comeback from a severe injury, Lyon’s experience and class make them a formidable opponent. A team with so much previous success at this stage may never be assembled again. 

The last time Barcelona lost for more than 90 minutes in a game that truly mattered was in the 2020 UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final against Wolfsburg, a one-off match played behind closed doors. 

And when was the most recent public performance? In Budapest three years ago, Lyon was present.

Barcelona vs Lyon Odds

In the previous match between Barcelona W and Olympique Lyonnais Women, Barcelona W lost 1-0 in dismay against many soccer odds.

These two teams have met three times in the past few years, according to our knowledge.

The last three times Barcelona W faced Olympique Lyonnais Women, Olympique Lyonnais Women won each match. There has been no previous tie between them.

Soccer betting trends show Barcelona Women perform exceptionally well at home, while Olympique Lyonnais Women perform exceptionally well on the road.

In the past, matches between Barcelona W and Olympique Lyonnais Women averaged three goals, with both teams scoring 67 percent of the time.

In the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Barcelona W has averaged 3 points per home game and 2.29 points per away game so far this season.

Barca Femeni’s attempt to defend their title against a club that has won the European Cup seven times should make for an exciting final.

This season, the Catalans are poised for even greater success in the soccer betting odds, and they remain the team to beat. However, Lyon has previously won the Champions League, so the final should be an exciting contest.

Barcelona vs Lyon Betting Prediction

The Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas is in charge of Barcelona. She needed to score twice in the first leg of the semifinal against Wolfsburg. Barcelona, however, was defeated in the second leg. This will not eliminate them from the competition, but it will awaken them.

Catarina Macario, an American forward who scored twice in the first leg of the semifinals, leads Lyon’s potent offense. Before the second leg against PSG, she had scored in eight consecutive games for club and country.

If you are unsure how to bet soccer, just remember that Barcelona will have the opportunity to avenge their 4-1 loss to Lyon in 2019 final in Budapest.

On their way to the championship game, both teams annihilated their opponents.

Before losing to Wolfsburg in the semifinal’s second leg, Barcelona had won every Champions League match. Lyon had to exert more effort to reach the final, but the French team still won its group and advanced through the first two rounds of knockout play.

Soccer picks expect Barcelona to win this one 1-0.
