Coupe de France feminine : lOlympique lyonnais comes to the end of the PSG - The Point

The final of the Coupe de France féminine de football OL-PSG is played the penalty shootout (0-0, 4-3 t. a. b.), Sunday, August 9, in the stade Abbé-Deschamps in Auxerre, a game that OL's should have won in regular time. But Lyon will have to be more effective to approach their quarter-final of the champions League to Bayern Munich, like Paris in the face of Arsenal.

As for the Trophée des champions against PSG, already, Élodie Le Sommer missed his attempt, which was stopped by the guardian, a chilean Christiane Endler. The latter then Lea Khelifi, whose shot was stopped by Sarah Bouhaddi, have failed on the side of the Paris-SG. In the storm, which caused a power outage and an interruption of a quarter of an hour after ten minutes of the game, and then constant rain, the champions of France have deserved their victory. They have shown a real strength, especially defensively, to thirteen days to face Bayern Munich, on the 22nd of August in Bilbao.

Improve the offensive efficiency

Lyons will continue to have the opportunity to ascend into power, but they must seek to improve their offensive efficiency on the occasion of two friendly matches against Juventus Turin and PSV Eindhoven during a tournament organized in Groupama stadium in Décines-Charpieu the 13 and 15 August. For his part, PSG, who will also play the 22 August in san Sebastian, against Arsenal, will be from August 16 to 21 in placement to Hagetmau in the Landes, but will play most any other game.

This is the ninth success in the Coupe de France Olympique lyonnais (eleven if you count the two won by FC Lyon in which he took the suite), that hangs as well, on the national level, the tripled Trophy champions - League-Coupe de France hoping now a quadruple with the champions League. This is the 30th title of the OL women in all competitions. The Rhodaniennes, holding of title, are created several clear cut opportunities, especially in the first period, which ought to give them the win before the shootout.

The strength of defensive PSG

But they have, as on several occasions this season and even in the face of Guingamp (1-0), August 2, in the semi-final, sin in the finish, which could obviously be detrimental to Bayern. As well, Nikita Parris (35, 40, 61) has been close to finding the opening just as Wendie Renard in the 8th minute while Amel Majri was stopped in extremis by Onema Grace Geyoro (23).

And on their side, none of the players outputs on the bench in the second period, as this is Eugenie Le Sommer, the Dutch Shanice van de Sanden or the englishwoman Jodie Taylor, has not been able to make the difference hoped for on the freshness despite several good attacks in the last half-hour. For its part, the PSG, who had also struggled in the semi-final by winning in Bordeaux (2-1) has also been solid defensively but has not succeeded, the opposite of his opponent, to create any opportunity.
