Olympique Lyon is on the Top of the World !
After two awards for the German club VFL Wolfsburg (2013 and 2014), the French team of Olympique Lyon crowned its unbeaten season with his second Award( the first in 2012) to become the IFFHS World’s Best Woman Club for 2015.
Football experts from 50 countries around the world took part in the voting organised by the IFFHS, the fourfth year of its annual elections for women’s football.
Olympique Lyon finalised a fantastic year 2015 , the French team had 33 matches (French League, French Cup, European Champions League ), won 32 matches and conceded one draw , scoring 181 goals and conceding 6 in the games. Lyon is Champion in France (before Paris SG, the finalist of the Champions League), winner of the French Cup and qualified for the quarter finals of the Champions League.
Lyon gathered 142 points to win by 42 points and relegated the 2015 European Champions League winner, 1.FFC Frankfurt to second place with two other German clubs, FC Bayern München (46) and VFL Wolfsburg (25) claiming third and fourth.
