OL failed to make the most of their dominating performance against PSG and conceded the goal that eliminates them from the Champions League... a cruel way to go out… But PSG did what they had to do…
In Lyon, Stade de Gerland, 9,000 spectators approx; Referee: Ms Kulcsar (Hun). OL 0-1 PSG (H-T: OL 0-0 PSG).
OL: Bouhaddi – Dickenmann, Kumagai, Renard (c), Majri – Henry, Bussaglia – Thomis, Schelin, Hegerberg (Thomis 58'). Coach: Prêcheur.
PSG: Kiedrzynek – Delannoy (c), Georges, Henning, Houara – Cruz, Seger, Kaci (Hamraoui 58') – Alushi, Horan (Delie 64'), Asllani (Dali 46'). Coach: Benstiti.
Goal: Alushi 78'Bookings: Kaci (PSG) 24', Renard (OL) 26', Seger (PSG) 73', Delie (PSG) 82', Dali (PSG) 85', Bussaglia (OL) 91'
- 15 shots for OL (3 on target) vs 2 (1 on target) for PSG.
- 4 corners for OL vs 1 for PSG
- 12 fouls for OL vs 16 for PSG
- Bouhaddi made four significant saves.
Despite dominating outrageously, OL lose and are eliminated... A cruel defeat against a Paris side that resisted stoutly and took the one chance that came their way...
Added Time: Laura Georges clears the danger. One final OL free-kick, taken by Necib, but it comes to nothing...
78': Hamraoui's free-kick ended up at the feet of Alushi who opened the scoring! Paris' first shot of the match and they score...
48': Majri sees her cross-cum-shot come-back off the left-hand upright of the Paris goal! Alushi tries to lead a counterattack at the other end...
At half-time, Lyon haven't been rewarded for their enterprising half of football. Les Parisiennes have struggled at one end and have caused a single moment of panic or danger in the Lyon defence. PSG are yet to shoot at goal, compared to 6 shots for OL!
14': Hegerberg gets a long-range shot on target.
6': OL made an excellent start and Le Sommer headed just wide before seeing a shot blocked by Georges, as Lyon had the first chances. Les Lyonnaises were right on top of Les Parisiennes in the opening exchanges!
The first leg was an intense and even affair in which both sides had their dominant periods. The draws was the right result... OL have a slight advantage having scored an away goal... Paris coach Farid Benstiti went with the same starting line-up for the second leg; Gérard Prêcheur brought in Majri at the expense of Petit... Dickenmann moved to right-back...
