About

With Swiss teams lifting the trophy at the two previous editions, this time it was a French club who came out on top while making their debut in the competition. Olympique Lyon defeated Belgian representatives Anderlecht 1-0 in the final, with Myziane Maolida scoring the goal that sealed victory for the newcomers. FC Zurich secured third place after beating the previous year’s winners and city rivals Grasshoppers 1-0 in the third-place match.
