The early team news is in and Barca Captain Alexia Putellas – the tournament's top scorer so far – is likely to play a key role. Lyon's Dzsenifer Marozsán is injured, making way for 22-year-old midfield dynamo Damaris Egurrola.

Turin's Juventus Stadium will be rocking this Saturday. It might be a rematch of the women's final three years ago, but Jonatan Giráldez's Barcelona have made huge strides since losing 4-1 to Lyon in 2019.

Indeed, FC Barcelona Femení are almost unbeaten this season having won every competitive match bar a 2-0 defeat to Wolfsburg in the second leg of their semi-final. Lyon will take some beating, though. The French club are the most successful side in the history of the tournament, having lifted the trophy a record seven times (2011, 2012, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020). 

Barcelona vs Lyon kick off is 6pm BST on Saturday, 21st May 2022. It's free to watch on ITV Hub in the UK. Here's how to watch a 2022 Women's Champions League final live stream for free from anywhere.
