Women's Champions League: Frankfurt beat PSG to win title

Frankfurt
German sides have won the last three women's Champions League titles

Mandy Islacker scored in stoppage time as FFC Frankfurt beat Paris St-Germain 2-1 and win the women's Uefa Champions League for a record fourth time.

Celia Sasic nodded Frankfurt ahead with a record-equalling 14th goal of the tournament, but Marie-Laure Delie levelled for PSG, playing in their first European final, before the break.

The game looked set for extra time but Islacker curled in the late winner.

It was Frankfurt's first Champions League title since 2008.

German clubs have now won nine of the 14 editions of the European competition.

Frankfurt, who are managed by Englishman Colin Bell, also needed to win to qualify for next season's tournament, having finished third in the women's Bundesliga behind champions Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg.
