News from the ladies
On Saturday afternoon at the Stade de Gerland, OL’s female players won 3-2 against Umeå IK after a suspense filled match. Having dominated, Farid Benstiti’s players will have to confirm on Sunday in their Champions League semi-final return leg in Sweden. The OL squad will fly out on Fruiday morning for Umeå and its wintery temperatures (between -3°C and 3°C).
On Sunday, the reigning champions Duisburg overcame Potsdam 1-0 during the 100% German semi-final first leg. Having knocked OL out in the semi-finals last year, Duisburg will defend their title away to the German champions on Sunday.
At the same time, there have been a number of surprises in the French league. PSG who had been leaders up until now once again lost heavily, 3-0 away to Juvisy who have taken top spot in the league. Montpellier suffered a great disappointment losing 2-1 at Hénin-Beaumont. 5 points behind Juvisy, OL could become leaders if they are victorious in their two games in hand.
