Barcelona vs. Lyon preview, TV channel, stream, lineups for Women's Champions League final

Barcelona and Lyon head to the Juventus Stadium for the UEFA Women's Champions League in a historic final in Turin.

The Catalan giants claimed their first Champions League title in 2021, as part of an incredible treble-winning campaign, and they will be looking to defend the trophy against the French giants.

Victory in the 2022 final would confirm Barcelona as the fourth club to defend the title, alongside VfL Wolfsburg, Umea and Lyon, since its inception in 2002.

Lyon's record of seven titles places them as the most successful club in the history of the competition, with their only final defeats coming against German sides, in 2010 and 2013.

Star striker Asisat Oshoala has return from a knee problem and the Nigerian international will start alongside Ballon d'Or Féminin winner Alexia Putellas and Jennifer Hermoso in Turin.

Barcelona projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Panos (GK) — Rolfo, Leon, Parades, Torrejon — Putellas, Guijarro, Bonmati — Hansen, Oshoala, Hermoso.

Sonia Bompastor's Lyon side are closing in on the French domestic title after losing out to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021 and they need just two more points to confirm it.

Despite still having something left to play for in France, Bompastor has opted to rest certain players in recent weeks, and Lyon should be at full strength for the final.

Lyon projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Endler (GK) — Bacha, Mbock, Renard, Carpenter — Horan, Macario, Henry — Malard, Hegerberg, Cascarino.
