Women’s D1: despite Diani, PSG hooked on Fleury in a crazy derby (4-4)

Women's D1: despite Diani, PSG hooked on Fleury in a crazy derby (4-4)

Fleury did not achieve the feat of bringing down PSG. But Fabrice Abriel’s players can be proud of them. At the Robert-Bobin stadium in Bondoufle, the Essonniennes gave a hard time to a Parisian team, which is content with a sharing of points (4-4).

From the start of the match, Gérard Prêcheur’s players put their foot on the ball. A situation that was expected. What was less was the opener for Fleury on his first opportunity. On a pass from captain Léa Le Garrec, Sweden’s Amanda Ilestedt throws herself but offers the goal to Ewelina Kamczyk (1-0, 15th) on a silver platter. As a year ago in the semi-final of the Coupe de France and in the first leg in September, the Essonniennes lead ahead of the Parisiennes.

The reaction of PSG is not expected by the inevitable Kadidiatou Diani. On a service from Lawrence, Fleury’s defense returns badly to… Groenen who tries his luck before Diani extends the ball (1-1, 21st). It took the leaders just six minutes to equalize and the same amount of time to take the lead. Ramona Bachmann does not need to be asked to send a sumptuous strike into the left corner (1-2, 27th).

We say to ourselves that PSG will now be able to lead this meeting of the 13th day as it pleases. No way. On personal exploit, Kouassi eliminates several players before deceiving Bouhaddi, stunned (2-2, 29th). The clash between first and fourth in the championship keeps all its promises. Fabrice Abriel’s players confirm their good current series of six games without defeat (5 wins, 1 draw).

The regrets of the Parisiennes, lifted by two goals

But PSG are not unbeaten in the championship for nothing. In this completely crazy match, the Parisiennes regained the advantage thanks to the inevitable Diani, who took the opportunity to score his 12th goal of the season in the league. On a cross from Fazer, Diani resumed right (2-3, 39th).

Insatiable, Diani adds a fourth goal on an Essonne defensive error (2-4, 49th). The Parisiennes have the luxury of missing a penalty by Bachmann (54th). The latter still misses the double on an attempt which fails on the post (63rd).

Failures that the Parisians will regret after the incredible goal of Airine Fontaine, with a relentless cross strike (3-4, 70th), and the equalization of Kouassi (4-4, 74th) on a Parisian defensive error.

The end of the match smells like a knockout. But neither the dominating PSG nor Fleury, against, manage to score the winning goal. For the first time in its history, Fleury hooks PSG and remains undefeated this season at home.

“There is not much to say, believes Ashley Lawrence, the Parisian at the microphone of Canal + Foot. We have a lot of chances but we have to make it happen. We are very disappointed with the draw. Even if it’s against a great team. We shouldn’t concede so many goals. We need to be more focused and united. We conceded goals that we shouldn’t concede. »

In the opposing camp, Airine Fontaine displays a broad smile: “We lost 4-2 and we managed to come back to score. We remain undefeated at home. We continue on this momentum. It’s like a victory for us against PSG. We confirmed our good current series. »
