In the first leg of a 2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League quarterfinal, Olympique Lyon defeated VfL Wolfsburg, 2-0, at AOK Stadium in Wolfsburg, Germany.
Alex Morgan started and made her Champions League debut for Lyon. Morgan hit the post in the first half but the teams went into halftime deadlocked in a scoreless draw. Camille Abily changed that in the 62nd minute by knocking home a free kick past Wolfsburg’s Almuth Schult. Dzsenifer Marozsán sealed it in the 74th minute for the visitors with a low, hard-driving shot that beat a diving Schult.
Lyon will host the return leg on March 29 at Stade de Lyon.
