Eugénie Le Sommer, Melchie Dumornay and Kadidiatou Diani had the task of leading OL to victory this Sunday evening against Paris SG. It's done. The three attackers were excellent and knew how to combine all three perfectly. Le Sommer's cross was just centimeters away for the opening score with a header from Dumornay (35th). Le Sommer doubled the lead in the 66th minute. Diani, transferred from Paris to Lyon this summer, was reunited with his old club and was not very sentimental. The French team striker stepped up her efforts and was extremely available. The Lyon attackers, under the leadership of an unstoppable Dumornay, infused very strong energy into the rest of the team and won everything in their path. Despite the recent arrivals of Dumornay and Diaiti, the Lyonnaises gave the impression that all three have always known how to play together.
The OL captain and defender once again proved impenetrable and disconcertingly calm. The Parisian attackers have never been able to get the upper hand on the player from the French team. His physical presence on corners and his technical accuracy on the restart make the difference.
For their part, the Parisian attackers showed almost nothing. Vangsgaard and Martens tried a few times to initiate shots and create space, without success. Baltimore was the most prominent in this meeting. The Parisian managed to make differences several times in the Lyon defense but there was no one each time to take back her crosses. Jackie Groenen was harmless. The Dutch missed her match, like the Paris SG attack as a whole, which proved to be too imprecise and ineffective in front of the Lyon cage.
Unlike Wendy Renard, the Parisian defender was very feverish. Several times taken by speed and in depth by Dumornay and Diani, she came close to the correctional throughout the match. Warned from the half-hour mark of a yellow card for a gross foul on Diani, the Parisian almost conceded a penalty. The PSG player, unable to take the measure of the Lyon attackers, remained limited and late on almost all of her interventions.
