Please welcome to 1970 PSG, women’s football expert Sylvain Jamet.
Sylvain is a London based writer on women’s football for Daily Cannon (fellow Football Collective and Onefootball members). Sylvain also writes for Footofeminin and has recently covered the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015. He has been attending games on a regular basis since 2004/05 in England and also around the world. Sylvain has seen games at every level from the U17 to the seniors for club and country.
On Matchday 16 out of 22, PSG Women won 5-0 away to Nimes and are likely to qualify once again for the UEFA Women’s Champions League for the season of 2016/17.
The game saw the long awaited return of fan’s favourite Kenza Dali who has recovered from a knee injury and new signing Rosana netted her first goal for the club. The Brazilian came on as a second-half substitute.
The line-up was : Kiedrzynek, Delannoy, Georges, Erika, Houara ( Sarr 75’), Geyoro (Rosana 66’), Karchouni ( Dali 66’), Dahlkvist, Cristiane, Delie, Mittag.
Goals by Cristiane 17’, Delie 54, 56’ Erika 63’ Rosana 71’.
PSG Women had played a midweek friendly against Chelsea Ladies, fielding mainly players from the U20’s, including five senior players. Unfortunately they lost by five goals to one, which was scored by Sarr. A return friendly likely to be played at Cobham’s training ground is to be organised later this season.
Olympique Lyonnais lead the Division 1 feminine with 60 points while PSG are second with 57. Third place Montpellier have 55 points and are unlikely to grab second place unless PSG slip up in the remaining six games.
They have Guingamp at home, St Maur away, St-Etienne away, La Roche sur Yon at home, Albi away and Juvisy on the final day at home.
OL and MHSC will play each other on the final day, so assuming the top three teams win their next five League games, we would have the following ranking:
- OL 80 points
- PSG 77 points
- MHSC 75 points
A win against Juvisy would see PSG reach 81 points, as it is four points for a win, two for a draw and one for a defeat. Should MHSC win at OL on final day OL and PSG would finish equal on 81 points and OL would be crowned champions as they have a better head to head record.
In a month’s time, PSG Women will be playing their Champions League 2015/16 quarter-final away to Barcelona on the 23rd of March with the return leg to be played at Stade Charlety on the 30th of March.
