D1 Women: winner of Saint-Etienne, PSG continues its perfect course


The Parisian players are content with a small success against ASSE (2-0) this Sunday at Camp des Loges. At the same time, Lyon has crushed

The victory was more narrow than expected but it is there.

PSG defeated AS Saint-Etienne (2-0) this Sunday noon at the Camp des Loges thanks to goals from Sara Däbritz and Marie-Antoinette Katoto.

A sixth success in six league games for the Parisiennes (the series climbs to eight including the Champions League), all without conceding a goal, which allows them to hang on to Olympique Lyonnais, winner at the same time from Montpellier (5-0).

Physically blunted by the sequence of meetings every three days, the players of Didier Ollé-Nicolle struggled to gain the upper hand over a well-organized Saint-Etienne team defensively.

The light came from the right lane of Kadidiatou Diani, decisive passer for Däbritz's opener.

The German midfielder, found at the entrance to the area, sent the ball into the skylight with a precise strike (43rd) just before the break.

The Parisian difficulties continued after returning from the locker room.

And it was on a free kick that the gap widened.

This time, Däbritz, very fit this season, has turned into a passer for the head of Marie-Antoinette Katoto (67th), who never ceases to score.

The 22-year-old striker has scored her seventh goal in D1's last four games, where she is the top scorer.

Without the crossbar, Däbritz could have afforded a brace (89th).

It feels good before the international break

“We had a good team in front, summarizes Grace Geyoro, the captain.

We were less efficient today but the victory is at the end, that's the main thing.

We had to remain patient ”.

The success is less broad than the first three outings at home (5 goals on average per game).

But it allows Paris to approach the international break while remaining in second place in the standings.

Lyon swept Montpellier at home and keeps the lead thanks to a better goal difference (+ 27 against + 20).

PSG will meet in Dijon on October 31 before a series of shocks against Real Madrid (November 9 in Paris, November 18 in Spain) and Lyon (November 13).



PSG: Däbritz (43rd), Katoto (67th).

PSG: Votikova - Lawrence, Ilestedt, De Almeida, Karchaoui - Geyoro (cap.), Hamraoui (Diallo 55th), Däbritz - Diani, Katoto, Baltimore (Khelifi, 80th).
