OL win the Olympico and warm up for PSG clash in style
This Saturday, OL Women travelled to Martigues to take on Olympique de Marseille, in Week 10 of the Women's D1. An Olympico A clash of opposites with Reynald Pedros' side sitting top of the table and Christophe Parra's girls down in second-from-bottom.
OM are yet to win this season and things didn't change against the defending champions. With OL president Jean-Michel Aulas in the stands, OL made a flying start. Camille Abily corner found Lyon captain Wendie Renard to open the scoring (10’, 0-1). Lyon were right on top, with Marseille's first shot of the match coming on the half-hour, but it remained 1-0 at the break.
But it didn't take long after the restart for OL to extend their advantage. Ada Hegerberg scored from Shanice van de Sanden pass (49', 0-2) and got her second from Amel Majri's corner (55', 0-3). Moments later Lucy Bronze got her name on the scoresheet with a header from another corner (58', 0-4), before Kheira Hamraoui, who had only just come on, finished off a superb team move (69', 0-5).
The win sees OL further cement their place at the top of the standings and prepare in style for their next game against second-placed Paris Saint-Germain - 3-0 winners over Bordeaux - at the Groupama Stadium.
