UEFA Women's Champions League holders Olympique Lyonnais have wrapped up their sixth league title after a 3-0 victory against FCF Juvisy Essonne ensured a stunning denouement to their season.
Patrice Lair's side have been in irresistible form of late and went in to their final match holding a one-point advantage over second-placed Juvisy. There was little evidence of any tension, however, as Lyon enjoyed a blistering start. An intricate exchange between Lotta Schelin and Élodie Thomis resulted in the former breaking the deadlock after 18 minutes.
Despite their dominance, the hosts soon enjoyed a slice of good fortune, as Laëtitia Tonazzi's delicate chip came back of a post with Sarah Bouhaddi beaten. Lyon refused to be deterred and responded in tempered fashion as Eugénie Le Sommer doubled their lead 13 minutes from time. One of the most eminent clubs in the women's game then made sure of victory courtesy of Thomis' second.
The result ensured Lyon finished the campaign unbeaten having scored a remarkable 119 goals in 22 league games, also winning the French Cup as well as defending their European title with a 2-0 defeat of 1. FFC Frankfurt in Munich. "A treble after last season's double is something great," said coach Lair. "I think few sides will be able to do this in the future. Juvisy are a talented side ending with only two defeats. We struggled in the first half but were much better in the second."
Juvisy will join Lyon in next season's UEFA Women's Champions League round of 32.
