OL-Fleury : Assurer pour ne rien regretter (Vendredi 20h45 sur Multisports 2)
A week after the frustrating draw conceded against PSG, the Lyonnaises will host FC Fleury 91for the 22nd and final round of the D1 Arkema season.

THE CONTEXT

The 0-0 draw against players of Olivier Echouafni a week ago saw Lyon's hopes of a 15th league title very much slip away. They had to win to move ahead of the capital club  on the penultimate matchday of the season but could not find a goal against an opposing defense who were well-organized and aware of the stakes of this match. They now approach this match against Fleury with the usual tag of being the favorite. The players of Sonia Bompastor must now hope for a miracle from Dijon, currently 8th, against a Parisian team which will do everything to not drop any points and become champion of D1 Arkema at the end of the round.

THE CHALLENGE

We will first have to make on good on our status as favorites and win, then wait for a miracle to happen in Paris. Dijon FCO are heading to the capital and will have to fulfill a mission that only the Bordelaises and Lyonnaises have achieved: to get a result against a Parisian side who are still undefeated in the league this season and who are having the best league season in their history.

THE OPPONENT

9th in D1 Arkema just behind DFCO, FC Fleury 91 have nothing more to play for on this last day. The team remains on one win and four losses across its last five matches. The players from the Paris region come to Lyon with the aim of resisting a team that is far superior to them on paper and hopes to end the season against the defending champions on a very good note. It will, however, still be necessary to be wary of this "outsider" before looking to Paris and holding out hope for a miracle.
