A spectacular Classique for the women's team
Olivier Echouafni's side won 11-0 in the Classique against Olympique de Marseille in Week 13 of D1 Arkema at the Stade Jean Bouin.
After four consecutive victories, Olivier Echouafni's side were determined to continue their good run of form in front of the crowd at the Stade Jean Bouin, in a Classique against their rivals from Olympique de Marseille on Saturday afternoon. And they weren't disappointed as Paris Saint-Germain's women's team won 11-0.
They only had to wait five minutes to see Les Parisiennes open the scoring. After an excellent team move, it was Nadia Nadim who found Grace Geyoro, who then beautifully set up Kadidiatou Diani (1-0, 5').
With the handbrake off, the Rouge-et-Bleu didn't leave the Marseille box, creating chance after chance.
Dominating and full of motivation, the hosts went to town and delighted the fans who had travelled to the ground: Nadia Nadim got the second after she headed home a cross from Marie-Antoinette Katoto (2-0, 10'), before Nadim herself got the third goal of the encounter (3-0, 22').
From a corner, it was Formiga who scored the fourth (4-0, 29'), getting her very first goal in D1 Arkema. Before half-time, Diani (5-0, 32') Nadim (6-0, 37'), Katoto (7-0, 40'), and Diani once again (8-0, 45') continued to turn the screw.
Even though Christophe Parra's side showed better intentions in the second half, the unplayable Geyoro and Diani continued to torture the visitor's defence. Not content with an 8-0 lead, Paris Saint-Germain continued the goal fest in the second half. Diani got a hat-trick and it was then Katoto's turn to get her own matchball, when the number 9… scored the ninth goal of the match (9-0, 57').
An encounter dominated from start to finish by Les Parisiennes, and particularly marked by the debut of Brazilian winter recruit, Luana Bertolucci Paixão. It was down to Sandy Baltimore to bring the goals to an end, with a fantastic left-footed finish (10-0, 71'), and a perfectly timed effort to convert Katoto's pass (11-0, 79'). All of this and Christiane Endler didn't even face a shot on target.
Mission accomplished for Olivier Echouafni, whose side strengthen their second position in D1 Arkema, with just two points separating them from Lyon in first place.
