Amandine Henry left her mark on the 2021-22 Women’s Champions League final. And how. Opposed to FC Barcelona during the duel at the top of the European season, Olympique Lyonnais kicked off the match played at the Allianz Stadium in Turin (Italy) in the best possible way.

The 32-year-old French international, started by Sonia Bompastor in a three-man midfield alongside Catarina Macarino and Lindsey Horan, scored one of the goals of the year. From the 5th minute of play, Henry went to recover the ball from the feet of Alexia Putellas, Ballon d’Or last season.

An air of déjà vu in the final

The Lyonnaise quickly got up from her tackle, before moving forward and unleashing an absolutely luminous strike with the right foot, from more than 30 meters. The ball came to clear the opposite corner of Barcelona goalkeeper Sandra Panos, surprised by the power of the missile.
