D1 Arkema : Confirmation against Soyaux (Sunday 14h45)
Last Saturday's victory against PSG (1-0) at Groupama Stadium allowed Lyon to take sole control of D1 Arkema, 3 points ahead of the Parisiennes. The goal is now to end the year 2019 with success in the last 3 matches: a trip to Soyaux this Sunday (2:45 pm), then visits from Metz and Dijon in December. A series of wins would allow the players of Jean-Luc Vasseur to spend the holidays warmly, and leading the championship.
On the opposite side, Soyaux hopes to reach the break as far as possible from the relegation zone. After a rather successful start to the season with only 1 defeat in their first 7 games, the teammates of the former Lyon player Lucie Pingeon have relapsed with setbacks in Bordeaux (1-4) and against Reims (0-1). This places them in 9th place in D1 Arkema, 4 points ahead of OM and the first relegation spot.
Soyaux is a team against whom OL have done well in recent times, with a series of 28 consecutive wins and an average of more than 5 goals per game. Last season, Wendie Renard's teammates won in the Charente 6-0 in the league and 5-0 in the Round of 16 of the Coupe de France.
