It was a last effort in Lyon colors before another international break. Leading D1 Arkema thanks a perfect record Jean-Luc Vasseur's players were keen to consolidate their position and join their respective international sides with peace of mind. In a way that has become habitual, they attacked a Guingamp team which had finally gotten off the mark last week after a very difficult start to the season. But Lyon, playing in front of 750 supporters, ignored this and set the wheels in motion. After giving themselves a few chances, they were rewarded on a header from Henry.
As dominant as ever, Bouhaddi and her teammates would have conceded an equalizer without a big save from the goalkeeper. A few minutes after this chance for Guingamp, Lyon took another chance through Majri, who was returning from injury, and could then be more comfortable. Gunnarsdottir also found the net to celebrate her return to competition before Majri scored to get herself a double to make it 4-0. As usual, OL will spend this break at the top of the standings thanks to this victory and will try to keep their position on Saturday, October 31 in a big match away to Montpellier.
Sarah Bouhaddi's reaction
It is a pleasure to get back on the pitch. We wanted to score a lot of goals. This week's work has paid off so it's good. It's also important not to concede goals as we did tonight.
Amel Majri's reaction
I'm happy to have scored these two goals. I received some very good crosses tonight. The objective is to be decisive whether it is by passing or by scoring a goal. We know we're doing everything to help the team.
