SummaryEdit

 
Verónica Boquete lifts the trophy after the match.

Frankfurt dominated the match early on, having two opportunities to score within the first ten minutes. While the German team had more possession over the course of the first half, further chances were scarce, until Kerstin Garefrekes served a ball to Célia Šašić on the wide post, giving Frankfurt the lead in the 32nd minute. The goal seemed to wake up the Paris players, who now became more active themselves. A corner kick in the 40th minute was delivered short to Kenza Dali who crossed the ball high into the box, where Marie-Laure Delie headed it into the net.

The second half started like the first, with Frankfurt controlling the game. It was until the 66th minute that Paris was able to create their first chance, when Laura Georges headed a ball wide. Frankfurt urged for the decisive goal before extra time, having two good chances through Simone Laudehr (81') and Mandy Islacker (87'). The latter got a second chance two minutes into injury time, who scored after capturing the ball in the box. Paris started one last charge in the closing stages of the match, creating a chance for Shirley Cruz Traña (94'), who missed, handing Frankfurt their record fourth title.[3]
