Huge hiccup for OL!

Women’s Olympique Lyonnais left the Coupe de France in which they were the huge favorite in the semi-final against Fleury.

While the men’s section had put up a good performance by winning at Lorient (0-2) in Ligue 1 in the afternoon, the girls of Olympique Lyonnais for once did less well than their boys counterparts .

Despite their status as huge favorites in the competition which they won last year for the 9th time in 11 years, the Rhodaniennes were eliminated in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France on Saturday. OL were taken on penalties and knocked out by Fleury, the team coached by Fabrice Abriel, after a 0-0 in regulation time.

The Champions League to console yourself

Griedge Mbock, Eugénie Le Sommer and Delphine Cascarino, all French internationals, missed their attempt, allowing the Franciliennes, 6th in the French elite, to create the feat. Fleury remembers goalkeeper Chloé Ngazi, the decisive player in the session. The arranger of Pour ne rien, Ada Hegerberg, the Norwegian star of OL, is injured and is sorted after 20 minutes.

The Lyonnaises can now focus on the Champions League, or face Benfica in 10 days in the quarter-finals of the competition. In D1 Arkema, OL were 7 points ahead of Paris Saint-Germain after 7 days and claimed 17th title and 18th without any problem.
