A draw was enough for Lyon to (again) become French champion on the penultimate day of the season, but he wanted to beat Paris Saint-Germain: after beating his runner-up by the closest difference thanks to an early goal scored in the Third Minute Catarina Macario, OL are crowned fifteenth in their history . The trophy he left exceptionally on PSG last season.
Paris Saint-Germain 0: 1 Lyon
Goal: Macario (3E)
2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 … and 2022. Lyon has to21, why this year is missing 2. this Sunday night he won the title of champion again France, who stole Paris Saint-Germain last season. PSG, who failed to prevent the fifteenth coronation of the Rhodaniennes because he lost the shortest difference during the penultimate day of practice, when he needed to win to prevent his opponent from winning the trophy so soon. There’s nothing you can do: the OLs, who now have an eight-point lead over their second place one game from the end, are definitely too strong and their double D1-C1 clearly proves it.
A few seconds to extinguish all voltage
Three minutes. This is the time it takes Lyon to open the score, half less than in the Champions League final against Barcelona. This shows how OL enjoys the start of the match, even more so when it comes to big meetings. This time it was Macario who hit first thanks to Bach’s great deep service. The rest are less noticeable to the guests, but they remain solid: if PSG pushes for a tie, Endler strikes in front of Katot, for example, while De Almeida misses the goal. The debates are thus rebalanced, in contrast to the score, which remains in favor of the championship leader almost halfway through the crown. Without Ollé-Nicolle on the bench, the coach replaced by Mendy for unsportsmanlike reasons, Parisiennes has to react.
It’s here again!
After returning from the locker room, OL continued the offensive fight despite Bach’s injuries, and Buchanan’s last-minute attempt blocked Dudek while Hegerberg tested Voll’s gloves. Besides the opposite is the response … but no success, Karchaoui’s lob failed to cross the clock. The rest is a calm handling of events on the part of Lyonnaises and a lot of duels outside the cages, which Parisiennes obviously do not benefit. Who are forced to face the facts, even though it is difficult to come to terms with it, and despite the enormous opportunities Malard missed (after the intervention, then a completely failed recovery): this year the defending champions must (again) hand over the cup to their enemies. Enemies whose track records are still rising at absolutely insane speeds. Paris Saint Germain (5-3-2): Voll-Lawrence (Baltimore, 58E), De Almeida, Dudek, Ilestedt, Karchaoui – Fazer (Bachmann, 74E), Geyoro, Diallo – Diani, Katoto (Huitema, 77E). Coach: Olle-Nicolle.
Lyon (4-3-3): Endler – Mbock, Renard, Buchanan, Bacha (Morroni, 56E) – Henry, Macario (Egurrola, 85E), Horan – Cascarino (Le Sommer, 52E), Hegerberg, Malard (Cayman Islands, 85E). Coach: Bompastor.
