The women's finale started with a fall in which Natalia Nepryaeva (RUS, Fischer ***) lost all chances of getting another seconds on Johaug and Østberg. The Russian fell when the tracks narrowed on the starting track and there was no place between Jacobsen (NOR) and Diggins (USA). In the first climb, the Norwegian took command, followed by Sadie Maubet Bjornsen (USA, Fischer ***), local hero Lucia Scardoni (ITA, Fischer ***), Jessie Diggins and Anamarija Lampic, who initially watched the action from behind. On the second climb, Diggins overtook and skied next to the teammate, who had no chance of going past Jacobsen on the inside curve. After the descent to the stadium, Jacobsen and Diggins raced side by side onto the finish corridors, but Anamarija Lampic came out of the slipstream and passed both with faster skis on their left side. It was her second victory in this Tour de Ski. Sadie Maubet Bjornsen, who skied into the second-placed Norwegian in the same lane, changed lanes but was unable to intervene in the battle for the podium. Fifth-placed Lucia Scardoni achieved her best World Cup result in front of Natalia Nepryaeva, who could not approach the group.
