Women’s Champions League: Parisians on a trip to Albania (4-0)

After winning at home on the last day, the Paris Saint-Germain women’s team won a second victory against the Albanians of Vllaznia as part of the fourth day of the Champions League. Les Parisiennes (7 pts, 2 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss) temporarily retain second place in Group A, two points behind Chelsea, who are playing at Real Madrid in the evening (3rd, 4 pts).

In the rain in Shkodër, the Parisiennes dominated the match as they did in the first leg, despite the resting of a few executives. A difficult match awaits it is true the Parisiennes Sunday in the league, on the ground of the European champions Lyon. After ten days, OL are at the top of the standings with two points ahead of Paris.

Two goals per period

In Shkodër, PSG opened the scoring with a penalty converted with great composure by captain Kadidiatou Diani (19th). A penalty all the same very severe for a very involuntary hand of Gresa Berisha (warned on the action). Diani then scored twice by taking over the line in a somewhat confused way (and perhaps with the help of an arm) a cross from the left of Mertens (36th).

In the second half, the Swiss Ramona Bachmann enhanced the addition with a strike in the top corner (60th).

On the throw-in, the Albanian Megi Doci shot on goal from the center of the field and the French goalkeeper Constance Picaud intercepted the ball in extremis on her line (61st). Picaud will have had practically nothing else to do during this one-sided meeting. Magnaba Folquet, who came on in the second half, closed the scoring with a nice curled shot (81st).

Real to come

The next two matches promise to be of a completely different caliber for the Parisiennes: Real Madrid on December 16 at the Parc des Princes (0-0 one way) then Chelsea in London on December 22. The English inflicted on the Parisiennes their only defeat this season, on October 10, at the Jean-Bouin stadium (1-0).

And Paris will always be deprived of its striker Marie-Antoinette Katoto who is recovering from her serious right knee injury in July at the Euro.
