Alexia “La Reina” Putellas, who recently re-signed with Barcelona, came off the bench to score the team’s second goal.

“Alexia is the captain of the team and she’s the queen of Barcelona for a reason,” defender Lucy Bronze told broadcaster DAZN after the game.

“She’s got the quality to do that in the last minute of the Champions League final when we were up against it at the end and it just sealed the win for us. It was amazing.”

The victory marked Barcelona's first win over Lyon in a UWCL final, having previously gone up against the French side at both the 2019 and 2022 Champions League finals.

"It's hard to win it once, but to do it back-to-back, Lyon showed how difficult it is and this team has finally done that," Bronze continued.

"I think we go down in history as one of the best teams in Europe."


Barca also secured a quadruple for the first time in club history, having won Liga F, the Copa de la Reina, and the Spanish Sueprcopa this season.

Following the game's exciting conclusion, Putellas said her team "can't ask for anything else."

"Our objective was to win four out of four," she told reporters. "We have achieved everything we wanted. Every minute of sacrifice has been worth the effort — and I'd say that not after the game, but before, just entering the stadium, with all the support we had here, it was worth it."

Ballon d'Or winner Aitana Bonmatí added that the crowd support made it "feel like Camp Nou."
"I am on cloud nine right now," Bonmatí said after the match. "It is a historic day which we will remember forever."
