Auxerre, France, Aug 9, 2020 (AFP) - Lyon beat Paris Saint-Germain 4-3 on penalties to claim a record-extending ninth Women's French Cup on Sunday, less than three weeks before the Champions League quarter-finals.

The European champions were held 0-0 in normal time before Sarah Bouhaddi saved Lea Khelifi's effort.

Former Ballon d'Or winner Ada Hegerberg missed the final with a knee injury.

The game was halted for 10 minutes in the first half as heavy rain and a storm caused floodlight failure in front of a crowd kept to 5,000 people in Auxerre due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In the Champions League quarter-finals, Lyon face Bayern Munich on Aug. 22 in Bilbao, while PSG play Arsenal in San Sebastian on the same day.

The two French sides can meet each other again in the final four.
