Nikita Parris to miss Champions League final after red card in Lyon’s win over PSG

Lyon are one win away from a fifth successive Women’s Champions League title – but they will be without Nikita Parris in the final after the England striker saw red in Wednesday’s 1-0 win against Paris Saint-Germain.

Wendie Renard’s header midway through the second half proved the difference in the all-French semi-final tussle, with Lyon advancing to face Wolfsburg in Sunday’s showpiece at Real Sociedad’s Anoeta Stadium.

Lyon will have to overcome the absence of Parris, who received a red card 15 minutes from time at San Mames in Bilbao.
