(Lyon – Juventus 3-1, 4-3 overall) She hasn’t scored since February. But when it mattered most, Ada Hegerberg (26) was in place with Lyon in the Champions League.
– We are very happy to move on even though we still have a lot to continue in the game, says Hegerberg Lions site.
She appeared on the back post and sent Leon into the lead after just over half an hour. When Salma Pasha had the ball out to the left, the Norwegian striker returned to the field and found the vacant space on the other side.
This post came and Hegerberg headed Lyon in the lead with his 57th goal of the tournament. It’s a Champions League record. After the match, she was named UEFA Player of the Match.
This is how things eased for the club that won the Champions League five consecutive seasons between 2015 and 2020.
Just two minutes later, American Lindsey Horan withstood an excellent post from the opposite edge. Juventus defender Martina Mezzini missed the scoring completely. Melvin Mallard could easily lead Lyon to the semi-finals.
After the break, Catarina Macario set 3-0 after an excellent turn inside the Juventus Stadium. Andrea Staskova created new excitement with her goal for Juventus four minutes from the end. But in the end, the Norwegian striker can cheer for progress. She thanks the home audience.
– Incredible support tonight. It was amazing, she says.
Hegerberg was not on the field when Lyon lost their first match to Juventus 2-1. She has not been on the scorers list since she did a hat-trick in an 8-0 match against both in Ligue 1 on February 11.
She ruptured the cruciate ligament in her knee in January 2020 and underwent surgery eight months after a fatigue fracture of her leg. It wasn’t until October 5 last fall that she was back in the field. After a 21-month break, she scored eight goals in Ligue 1 and three in the Champions League.
Paris Saint-Germain is now awaiting a semi-final match for the French on April 23-30. Celine Bizet Ildhusoy (ex-Valringa) came off the bench when Paris Saint-Germain advanced 2-2 against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
In the second semi-final, Barcelona will face Wolfsburg. That means a reunion with the old club of Barcelona duo Caroline Graham Hansen and Ingrid Serstad Engin. Graham Hansen scored a goal when Barcelona beat Real Madrid 5-2 in front of the record crowd – 91553 – at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Ada Hegerberg is on her way back to the national team for the first time in five years. She is expected to return for Norway’s World Cup qualifying match against Kosovo at Sandfjord on April 7.
Hello, Norway. “long time no see”. A little message from me: You’re back in the next group. It’s very nice to come home and get back into the team, not least to see you all from our younger and older goalkeeper at the next international game. “I will do my part to achieve great things on and off the field,” Hegerberg announced in a video he sent at the national team press conference last week.
Ada Hegerberg played her 66th international match so far when Norway lost 0-1 to Denmark at the European Championship 2017. Neither Hegerberg nor Norway scored any goals in the disappointing tournament in the Netherlands.
