An undefeated PSG side will travel to Lyon on Sunday with hopes of taking down Olympique Lyonnais and lifting its first-ever Division 1 Feminine title. The Parisians have led the league since their 1-0 home win over Lyon in November and are now tasked to win or draw to secure their first French league title.
This long-awaited fixture was supposed to take place two months ago, but it was postponed to Sunday, May 30, due to the COVID-19 outbreak within the Red and Blues squad. However, fans got their medicine when the two sides faced each other in their two-legged UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final tie. Despite losing 1-0 at home in leg one, Paris defeated Lyon 2-1 in the second leg to advance to the semifinals thanks to away goals.
Les Fenottes are looking for revenge after being denied their sixth-consecutive European title by their domestic rivals. Lyon will need to defeat PSG at home to deprive them of their first league title and lift its fifteenth consecutive Division 1 Feminine trophy.
