Reporter's view: Paul Saffer (@UEFAcomPaulS)
In the French Cup final 13 days ago, Paris tactically frustrated Lyon only to lose 7-6 on penalties. It happened again as a double became a treble for Lyon, who also beat Wolfsburg on spot kicks last year. Kiedrzynek was outstanding but in the end someone has to be out of luck in a shoot-out, Paris becoming the first team to lose their first two finals in this competition.

Gérard Prêcheur, Lyon coach
Sarah [Bouhaddi] is great with her feet. I think she's the best goalkeeper in the world anyway, but she's outstanding with her feet. I asked her to take a penalty in a league match too, because I thought she could score. [Tonight] was the right moment, because the other goalkeeper had missed – Wendie [Renard] told her she could do it.

We've got a great captain – she's our number one. If you take her qualities as a player and as a leader, she's amazing. She told Sarah she could do it. And congratulations to Sarah as well, I don't know how she did it – everyone jumped on her at the end of the match, I thought they were going to strangle her!

Dzsenifer Marozsán, player of the match
It's a final, and we knew it wouldn't be easy – PSG have a great team. I think it was a great final, for the fans as well. We just kept on and believed in ourselves. We took some good penalties so that's great mentally – and we had a bit of luck too. Lyon have made a big story tonight – winning the treble twice. That's amazing. I'm here tonight, and I'm really happy to have written history too.

Sarah Bouhaddi, Lyon goalkeeper
The players asked me if I wanted to take [a penalty], so I stepped up to the plate and I scored. I'm happy to have scored tonight, but it doesn't really matter; the most important thing was the team won and during the whole match nobody gave up. This made the difference.

Patrice Lair, Paris coach
I hope we'll be back and able to claim this title soon. In order to do so we'll need to work, recruit and become a stronger team. We're a bit behind Lyon, but I think we'll be able to catch them up. We've got to the final, lots of other clubs would have wanted to do that – I'd like to congratulate my team.
