OL-PSG: Lyonnais takes a substitute in final and can thank Paris goalkeeper


OL, the winners of the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against PSG at the Gruppa Stadium (3–2), took a modest choice with a view to qualifying for the final. Confirmation will be required at the Parc des Princes next Saturday.

festival of defensive errors

The clash between the two French giants soon escalated and it was the inevitable Marie-Antoinette Catoto who opened the scoring in the sixth minute of play after overtaking the Lyon defence. Not really bothered by the feud between Sandy Baltimore and Khira Hamraoui the day before, the Parisian Feynots invest in the camp but don’t manage to make the break.

Panicked at the start of the game, the seven-time European champion wakes up and takes advantage of Barbora Votikova’s mistakes to reverse the situation. First on a penalty from Wendy Renard, obtained after a foul by the Paris goalkeeper, then through Caterina Macario, who took advantage of a poor clearance from the Czech door to score her eighth goal of the season in the League of Champions.

PSG remained in the game despite Votikova

Already in difficult times in the first period, Barbora Votikova once again weighed her team after a disagreement with Pauline Dudek, which allowed Macario to score twice. Despite the prevalence of defensive errors, PSG remained in the game after receiving a penalty following a handball from Mallard. Just one penalty was converted by Dudek, who made up for his mistake on Lyon’s third goal.

Didier Ole-Nicol’s girls stay in the game and look to come back 3-3 thanks to Gyro, but their goal is logically disallowed for offside, without a resounding last round against Bayern. In the midst of her tough test, Barbora Votikova saved her match by preventing Hegerberg from giving the OL a two-goal lead in extra time.


With only one goal ahead of the return match at next Saturday’s Parc des Princes, the French champions are hopeful of qualifying for their third Champions League final in their history. This will require a win at home against the Feynots who will not let go to claim their crown in Turin on 21 May.
