UWCL : Getting closer to the stars against PSG (20h live on OLTV and OLPLAY)
Blasting past a strong Bayern team, the Lyon rocket is now launched towards its objective of winning a 7th European title, the 5th in a row. On the road to the stars, now stands a new obstacle in PSG.
There is so much to say about the matches between Lyon and Paris that we hardly know where to start. There have been coaches who coached both teams (Benstiti, Lair), many players who have worn both jerseys (Abily, Bompastor, Bussaglia, Cruz, Georges, Houara, Kaci, Seger etc ...). There were, sometimes even moments of brilliance, like the semifinal first leg win in the 2015-2016 Women's Champions League, won 7-0 in a boisterous Groupama Stadium. There have been moments of tension, too, with plenty of penalty shootouts and a decisive Sarah Bouhaddi helping OL win.
From Gerland to Cardiff, via Charléty and the Groupama Stadium, memories and emotions will surely resurface when they meet for a place in the final, at San Mamés. To try to join Wolfsburg, who barely slipped by a Barça side including Kheira Hamraoui (1-0), another player who's played for OL and PSG, it will be necessary that the rockets flies at full speed. Because we understand that nothing will be simple in this Final 8. As nothing was simple during the first three matches against Paris in the Trophée des Championnes (1-1, 4-3 pen), in D1 Arkema (1-0), and in the final of the Coupe de France (0-0, 4-3 pen).
