MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Megan Rapinoe came on as a sub to make her UEFA Women's Champions League in two-time defending champion Lyon's 5-0 win over Sweden's LdB Malmo. Americans Yael Averbuch and Cam Levin (Gothenburg FC) and Kristen Edmonds (FC Rossiyanka) all started in the first leg of the quarterfinals.

Malmo was considered by many the toughest team left in the final eight besides Lyon, but it was no match for the OL machine.

By the time Rapinoe came on for Swiss international Lara Dickenmann, the former Ohio State star, in the 66th minute, Lyon was already leading 3-0, on an opening goal from Elodie Thomis and two goals by Swedish star Lota Schelin.

Camille Abily
and Louisa Necib completed the scoring for Lyon, which is unbeaten and untied in the French league.
