Olympique Lyonnais recorded a 4-0 opening day victory away to Hénin-Beaumont in the women's first division thanks to goals from Schelin, Abily, Tonazzi and Le Sommer.

Patrice Lair's side made a successful return to action on a difficult pitch away to Hénin-Beaumont, on Sunday afternoon. Top scorer in the first division last season and Euro 2013 Golden Boot, Swedish striker Lotta Schelin took just one minute to open her account for the new season. 

Against a young but tenacious opposition, Les Lyonnaises had to wait until the second half before making the game safe thanks to goals from Camille Abily, Laëtitia Tonazzi and Eugénie Le Sommer, all under the watchful eye of new national team coach Philippe Bergeroo.

OL Women are equal top of the table, alongside their next opponent Juvisy, who defeated Muret 4-0, while PSG recorded a 2-0 win over Yzeure.
