Women in Europe: Chelsea retains FA WSL title, Macario scores in fifth straight game

Chelsea won England's FA Women’s Super League for the second season in a row and third time in the last four years when it beat Reading, 2-0, on the final day of the 2020-21 season to edge Manchester City by two points. The Blues' four titles are an FA WSL record.

Chelsea has also qualified for the UEFA Women's Champions League final against Barcelona for the first time in its history.

Arsenal finished third to clinch the third English spot in the expanded Women's Champions League next season when it tied Aston Villa, 0-0, and edged Manchester United by one point.

Bristol City was the lone team relegated to the Championship. It will be replaced by Leicester City in the WSL.

Catarina Macario scored in her fifth straight game for Lyon, recording her first brace in a 4-0 win at Issy. She has five goals in five D1 Arkema matches in addition to one goal in Lyon's 2-1 loss to Paris St. Germain that knocked it out of the Champions League in the quarterfinals. Lyon, winner of 14 straight league titles, remained one point behind PSG with three games to play, including a makeup game at home against PSG on May 30.

Bayern Munich moved closer to clinching the Frauen-Bundesliga title when it tied second-place Wolfsburg, 1-1, on the road and maintained its two-point lead. Ewa Pajor's late goal earned Wolfsburg a draw and kept its slim hopes alive. With two games to play, Bayern's record is 18 wins, one tie and one loss (3-2 to Hoffenheim in April). Wolfsburg's record is 17 wins, two ties and one loss (4-1 at Bayern Munich in their first meeting).

    D1 Arkema has good competition at the top of the table but the bottom half is complete roadkill. Glad to see Macario in a good run of form.
