💫 UWCL: Lyon claim dramatic comeback win; Barcelona and Arsenal victories
After some scintillating stuff on Tuesday we have the culmination this evening of the Women’s Champions League matchday three.
Follow it all here.
Lyon v Bayern
Scorers: Cayman 50′ Henry 86′; Wenninger 26′
Lyon completed a dramatic comeback as Amandine Henry netted the winner to secure a 2-1 win over Bayern Munich.
It was the Bavarian side who flew out of the blocks and went ahead on 26 minutes as Carina Wenninger latched on to the end of a flick on and bundled home the opener.
But just after the break Lyon got one back as Janice Cayman pounced on a loose ball inside the area and fired one in from close range.
And the French side completed the comeback with four minutes remaining as Henry headed home from a corner.
Benfica v Häcken
Scorers: Rubensson (PEN) 76′
A late penalty ensured that BK Häcken beat Benfica 1-0 in an otherwise dull game in Portugal.
With both of these sides at the foot of Group D it was imperative that they got a result here in Lisbon.
But neither team impressed in what was a pretty turgid first half of football.
Into the second half and it took until the 76th for the deadlock to break as Elin Rubensson scored from the penalty spot.
Barcelona v Hoffenheim
Scorers: Hermoso 5′, Alexia 19′ 33′, Torrejon 74′
Barcelona kept up their 100 per cent record in the Champions League group stage with a 4-0 win over Hoffenheim.
Barcelona got off to the perfect start as Jennifer Hermoso gave the Catalans the lead inside the opening five minutes.
The Blaugrana then doubled their advantage soon after as Alexia hit a brilliant free kick from the edge of the area.
The midfielder then got her second of the game on the half hour as he speculative effort squeezed under the goalkeeper.
Into the second half and the hosts got their fourth of the evening as Marta Torrejon got on the end of a deep cross and headed in.
HB Køge v Arsenal
Scorers: Pokorny 71′; Catley 27′, Parris 62′, Foord 69′, Patten 85′, Nobbs 89′
Arsenal established themselves as second place in Group C as they beat HB Køge 5-1.
The Gunners almost got off to a great start in Denmark but Nikita Parris missed a penalty after 15 minutes.
But they eventually did get their breakthrough on 27 minutes as Steph Catley scored a stunning free kick.
Into the second half and Parris did eventually get her goal as she spun inside the area and finished well.
The away side were humming now and got their third soon after as Caitlin Foord ghosted into the area and headed home.
The hosts though, did get one back as Maddie Pokorny latched on to a poor back pass and finished well.
Arsenal did restore their three-goal lead however as Anna Patten came off the bench and scored before Jordan Nobbs got a fifth.
