Lyon: What records do they hold in the Women’s Champions League? | UEFA Women’s Champions League

It’s a journey that began in August 2007 in front of around 100 people at a qualifying round match in North Macedonia, and has taken the UEFA Women’s Champions League by storm.

In October 2019, Lyon became the first club to make 100 appearances in UEFA women’s club competition, winning 4-0 at Fortuna Hjørring in the first leg of the round of 16. Since that opening match of what was then known as the UEFA Women’s Cup – a 12-0 loss to Slovakian Slovan Duslo Šala in Strumica – they may not have improved their margin of victory, but they went on to claim most club records in the competition.

Highlights of the 2020 final: Wolfsburg 1-3 Lyon

Chief among these is their unprecedented seven titles, including the now-completed five-game winning streak from 2016 to 2020, which matched Real Madrid’s men’s record from the European Cup’s early years. Paco Gento was part of this team; his record of six European club titles is surpassed by three players from Lyon.

They added another feather to their cap in 2021 when Melvine Malard scored the first-ever goal of the newly introduced group stage.
