This game was played at the Stamford Bridge.
The Women’s Champions League winner has been crowned and it’s not Lyon who was on the verge of creating history. Lyon was the better side through and through yet they could not manage a win. Appearing in their 4th consecutive final, Les Fenottes put on a show until the final whistle. However, they were not awarded a penalty when Ivonne Hartmann handled in the box, yet on the other end, the decision went the Germans way when a ball was handled in the Lyon area allowing Martina Muller to strike home the lone goal of the match.
However, I think the ref was bad in this game when it boiled down to decision making. The penalty not given to Lyon should have been awarded when the defender moved her arm to the ball. The one given was not a penalty as Laura Georges only had herself in a bad position. I think the ref got caught up with all the German excitement in town and decided to award the Germans a penalty.
Nevertheless, congrats Wolfsburg.
