It was a daunting week for the French and European champions, with two games against top teams in D1 Féminine on either side of a trip to Amsterdam for a mid-week Champions League match. But les Fenottes came through with flying colors, beating all three opponents and conceding just one goal over the week. The final victory in the series was a 3-0 win over Bordeaux on Sunday, ensuring that Lyon remain on top of the D1F table.
Ajax may be “stronger than grease” but they weren’t stronger than Lyon on Wednesday as OL Féminin picked up a 4-0 win in Amsterdam in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16. The titleholders now have one foot in the quarterfinals after goals from four different players carried les Fenottes to a comfortable victory.
