In the last remaining 1/9 finals 1st leg of Women’s Champions League, the Parisians set the tone from the beginning. Ashley Lawrence tried her luck but her effort was deflected slightly by Hana Sloupová and hit the crossbar. After twenty minutes of territorial domination, the PSG managed to get the opener via Marie Katoto who headed in a Sandy Baltimore’s cross. The duo repeated the same action in 36th minute.
After the break, Olivier Echouafni’s players came back with the same philosophy. Ramona Bachmann scored the third after a cross from Katoto. Ashley Lawrence headed in Paris’ fourth goal after a free-kick from Baltimore and Luana then added to the tally witha shot into the top corner in 81st minute.
Une première manche brillante 🤩
