The tension is at its height this Sunday between OL and PSG, who are vying for the title of champion of France. On a tackle in the first period of this last poster of the season of the first women’s division, Kadeisha Buchanan tackled Sandy Baltimore … who in her fall broke Olivier Echouafni, her trainer.
A week after the coronation of LOSC in Ligue 1, the first women’s division has yet to deliver its verdict. OL receive PSG for a “final”, which can see the Parisian team win the first title in its history. And from the first minutes of the game, the engagement was tough, with action quite improbable in the 18th.
The Canadian Kadeisha Buchanan did not go dead hand to tackle Sandy Baltimore, along the sideline. The OL player mowed down the PSG midfielder who, in her glide, knocked down her coach Olivier Echouafni. Finally more fear than harm for the player and the technician, who quickly recovered.
Before this final day, PSG had 58 points in the standings, against 57 for OL. A coronation of the Parisian training would be historic in more than one way, insofar as the club of Jean-Michel Aulas reigns over the first women’s division without interruption since the 2006-2007 season.
Losing the French championship would also be synonymous with a white season for OL, which also lost its crown in the Champions League, beaten in the quarter-finals … by PSG, who then experienced defeat in their half . Initially, this meeting between OL and PSG was scheduled for March 13, before a postponement due to several cases of coronavirus within the Lyon workforce.
