Match summary

It was a massive match between the two best teams in France for the first leg of the Women’s Champions League quarterfinals. In the first minute the Parisienne Diani offered a warning to OL, but her shot was off-target. A few minutes later, a bit of high pressing from Parris offered a chance for the England striker who could not beat Endler. PSG then took control of the match and obtained the best chances, but OL could count on their captains Sarah Bouhaddi and Wendie Renard, who were both impeccable in the first half. The two teams returned to the locker room on level terms, despite the Parisians' domination.




OL were much more enterprising at the start of the second half and spent much of it in the Parisian half of the field. But like the Lyon defence, the Parisian was just as strong. Endler was scarcely troubled in goal and Jean-Luc Vasseur made several changes to energize the attack and record an all-important away goal. With five minutes to go, OL drew a penalty which Wendie Renard converted. Once again the captain answered the call and gave her teammates a major advantage ahead of the second leg, as the Lyonnaises managed to hold on until the final whistle.
