[AMERICANS ABROAD] Megan Rapinoe started for two-time defending champion Lyon in its 3-0 win over French rival Juvisy before almost 22,000 fans at the Stade de Gerland in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinals.

Lyon got two goals from Swedish star Lotta Schelin and one from Frenchwoman Wendie Renard. Conny Pohlers and Martina Mueller scored goals to give Germany's Wolfsburg a 2-0 win at Arsenal Ladies in the other semifinal. The second legs of the semifinals will be played this weekend.

-- Whitney Engen, who has recently established herself on the U.S. women's national team at center back, started for Liverpool FC Ladies in its 1-0 win over Lincoln to open the 2013 Women's Super League campaign in England. Amanda da Costa also started for Liverpool.

-- Sarah Hagen scored her ninth goal in 15 games, and Amber Brooks had her third goal in three games as Bayern Munich beat Guetersloh, 2-0, in Germany's Frauen Bundesliga.

-- Kendall Fletcher scored in the 90th minute to complete the scoring for Vittsjo as it beat Sunnana, 5-1, to open Sweden's Damallsvenskan.

Defending Swedish champion Tyreso with U.S. national team players Christen Press and Meghan Klingenberg will open its season Tuesday at home against Umea.
