Olympique Lyon's players and coach preached caution as they look to beat Barcelona on the way to their fourth consecutive Women's Champions League title.

"We're particularly worried, we know Barcelona is a team with an enormous amount of qualities, on an offensive and defensive level," said head coach Reynald Pedros at in a pre-match press conference in Budapest on Friday.

Lyon's captain Wendie Renard said complacency wasn't an option. "We win trophies because we give ourselves the means to do it," she told reporters. "But Barcelona, for me it's fifty-fifty, even if we are the defending champions."

For Dzsenifer Marozsan it will be an emotional experience to play a final in Budapest, having been born in the Hungarian capital.

"There's really a lot of emotion in me, because it's a big, big game, said the Germany captain. "I can play for the first time at home, in front of my family. That's my dream."

Barcelona, who are appearing in their first ever final, eliminated German club Bayern Munich in the semi-finals, while Lyon narrowly overcame Chelsea over two legs.
