MATCH SUMMARY .
A week after the men's team, it was time for the women's side to get down to business at the start of the year. And like Rudi Garcia's men, it was a Coupe de France match, in the Round of 32, which awaited them to launch the year 2020. For their entry into the competition that they've won eight times, the OL women's team faced another top-flight side in OM.
Against all odds, the visitors, currently just outside of the drop zone, caught Lyon cold a few minutes after the kick-off at Groupama OL Training Center. The reaction of Jean-Luc Vasseur's players was obviously immediate. Nikita Parris and Eugénie Le Sommer put things in order with a double each in the first period. Under the eyes of Jean-Michel Aulas, in the stands, OL had clearly passed the test.
The start of the second period confirmed this ramp-up with three goals in just four minutes. Nikita Parris had a hat-trick as Dzsenifer Marozsan and Wendie Renard also opened their accounts for the day. The dominance in the game remained the same but the score did not change until the last quarter of an hour, with a moment of great inspiration from Janice Cayman and then a fourth from Nikita Parris. 9-1, the qualification for the Round of 16 of the Coupe de France was secured, with the draw scheduled for Tuesday.
THE REACTIONS .
Jean-Luc Vasseur, coach
“It's a satisfactory performance for a first match of the year. We were keen to come back well to prepare for the second half of the season. The goal conceded at the start of the match is the onlyblack mark. There was a lack of aggressiveness in this sequence. We knew that we would have the ball and the opportunities to score goals. We had a better second half. The substitutes were ready to play. The players were eager to get a run out. "
Eugénie Le Sommer
“It's a good match in which to return. We conceded a goal at the start of the match but we recovered well. We are happy with qualification. "
“We started the match well but lacked aggressiveness on the goal we conceded. We did it right. We wanted to have fun tonight. For a first match of the year, it's satisfactory. We leave with the same objectives. The goal is always to go higher. We work every day for that. "
“Marseille scored a nice goal but we had the confidence to respond. We were well-placed and our opponent could not resist the successive waves of attack. "
