Before the match against


in the Champions League final,


coach Sonia Bampastore claimed that the two teams have an equal chance of winning the title, although Barca is considered favorite.

The French team will face the Blaugrana for their eighth title, having won just once during the season. Bampastor is trying to become the first woman to win the Champions League, both as a coach and as a player and she is so focused on achieving the goal.

"Let's not forget Lyon have a lot of experience. This allows us to know how to approach it, but a final is 50-50. A magician never reveals their tricks.

"But our team is a talented and we have the skill set necessary to give them a run for their money, which is what we're going to do.

"This is a 10th final for Lyon and the chance to win an eighth title. That's more important than anything for me as an individual."

Barcelona striker

Asisat Oshoala

believes her side should not underestimate Lyon.

"Lyon are a well respected team in Europe – they won the Champions League five years in a row and they are obviously the team to beat here,"

she said.

"They're much stronger than they were three years ago. It would be good to win the Champions League again, not because it is Lyon we're playing against but because it's going to be an amazing experience for us to have it back-to-back.

"We're getting closer to our goal, we're getting closer to where we want to be, so on the day I think it's going to be amazing.

"It will be nice to play in front of a full stadium again with an amazing atmosphere, beautiful soccer from beautiful and great teams in Europe."
