Eyes in the mist, Chiamaka Nnadozi remains on the ground in front of its surface. Guilty of both acts, the Nigerian international goalkeeper, often very successful, definitely dwells on the last two goals conceded. Some of her teammates collapse in frustration. The last time Paris scored points (1:1) against Lyon was on December 3, 2011 (under the name Juvisy). But the kick came very close this Sunday at Charlety (2-3). Lyon remain in the lead with a two-point lead over Paris SG. “In front of this team you have to play a perfect match. “We were close to that,” says coach Sandrine Soubeyran. But we missed 15 minutes. We made two mistakes. »
From the very beginning, the Uleimatha Sarr was on fire. After a good sequence, the Frenchman took the position (7th). But on the new acceleration, Mathilde Bourdieu (1-1, 19th) delivers excellently to respond to the opening of the account by Wendy Renard (0-1, 17th). Called up for France’s last match against Norway but never entered the game, Bourdieu, a 3rd year physiotherapist, offers herself a double (2-1, 46th), bringing her to six goals since the start of the match. season.

But therefore, “Paris” will break in defense. With a cross from Le Sommer, Chiamaka Ndadozi misses the exit and is overtaken by Renard (2:2, 70s). And a huge disagreement between Aigbogun and his goalkeeper offers the third goal of Lyon to Delfine Cascarino (2-3, 80s) on the plateau. “There was a communication problem,” Sandrine Soubeyran regrets. It’s a shame because we didn’t care about the action. Subsequently, the quality of the Lyon team mattered. Our attackers put in a lot of effort to defend, and we left a lot of strength. In the end we didn’t have enough control to keep the ball. But these kinds of matches continue to be part of our training. I am pleased with what we have produced, we must remember the good. »
“We are getting closer and closer to Lyon and PSG but we still have one more step to go. »
The Paris football club, 3rd, admitted its first defeat of the season. On Sunday, he will host PSG in Charlety for a new gala match. In order not to suffer from the competition of the likely 8th final of the French national team, President Pierre Ferracci asked the microphone of Canal + to move the match forward (12:45 instead of 14:00). Answer within a week… Even if last year’s record of PFC Lyon (4000 people) was not broken, the Charlety stadium was already full this Sunday (almost 3000 people).
“I think those who came do not regret it, because we put on a great show,” said Thea Greboval, Paris centre-back. I hope there will be even more of them against PSG. We know that in the media these matches attract attention and are important for the development of women’s football. We are going to use this match with Lyon to find out more. We need to be tougher defensively because we concede two goals from set pieces. On the 3rd goal, there is not enough connection due to terrain, pressure… We are upset because we could have taken at least one point and three, having been greedy. Now we know that we are able to annoy Lyon and PSG, we are getting closer and closer to them, but we still have to go through the course to score points against them. »
