PSG will see the Champions League well.
The team coached by Gérard Prêcheur qualified for the group stage on Wednesday after winning the return leg against Sweden's BK Häcken (2-0).
A second success against this opponent after that of last week, acquired late at the Jean-Bouin stadium thanks to Kadidiatou Diani (2-1).
This time, everything settled more quickly.
After an insipid first act, marked by a strike signed Ramona Bachmann (13th) and a Scandinavian opportunity saved by Sarah Bouhaddi (20th), the Parisiennes accelerated the pace when they returned from the locker room.
On a cross from the Swiss, it was Lieke Martens, as on the first leg, who opened the scoring with a nice volley (53rd).
The Dutchwoman, one of the star recruits of the summer, continues her good integration at PSG.
