Wolfsburg complete treble

Wolfsburg became the first of two German teams to win the Champions League in London this week, as they beat back-to-back champions Lyon in the women's final at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening.

Martina Muller scored the only goal of the evening 16 minutes from time to complete an historic treble for Wolfsburg who have already won the domestic double this season, despite not having won a single title previously.

About 17,000 spectators witnessed Lyon's first defeat in 118 games, apart from on penalties, in their fourth consecutive final. They were defeated by Turbine Potsdam in 2010 before beating the same opponents and then Frankfurt in the following two years.

Under the eyes of FIFA boss Sepp Blatter and UEFA president Michel Platini, Wolfsburg, weakened by several injuries, had a good start. However, a goalless first half with good chances for both sides to score saw Wolfsburg turn their focus to counter attacks during the second half.

A handball from Lyon's Laura Georges saw the award of a contentious penalty and Germany international Martina Muller took her chance to decide the game. Wolfsburg were forced to withstand an onslaught but held out to defend their lead.

Several Borussia Dortmund supporters, in town for the men's Champions League final, were in the crowd. They received free admission to the final via Wolfsburg, who were supplying their supporters with tickets for the club's first ever international final.
