Lyon was aiming to increase their record haul of Champions League wins to nine, having won all of those titles since the 2010-11 season. The reigning Division 1 Feminine winners also won this season's Trophee des Championnes.

Only four clubs have won the UWCL since Lyon's first in 2011. Wolfsburg went back-to-back in 2013 and 2014, then Eintracht Frankfurt claimed the title in 2015. Barcelona then won in 2021 and 2023, last year beating Wolfsburg 3-2 behind a brace from Patricia Guijarro.

Barcelona ran away with Liga F this season in Spain, and more than a handful of Barca players won the 2023 World Cup with Spain. They can achieve a very rare UWCL and World Cup double with a win on Saturday.
