Les Parisiennes secure the win in the dying moments of the game
Paris Saint-Germain's Women's Team beat Fleury 2-1 on Sunday 19 October on Matchday 8 of D1 Arkema.
A few days after the setback in the Champions League against Ajax (0-2), Jocelyn Prêcheur's players had to get back to winning ways in the league, as they have two games in hand due to the postponement of the matches against Reims and Guingamp.
It was a derby that awaited Les Rouge et Bleu against the Lionesses of Fleury. A hard-fought and contested derby where the visiting team created the first clear opportunity of the match. But Kiedrzynek stepped up against Kamzyck to keep Les Parisiennes afloat. Moments later, it was Paris Saint-Germain who opened the scoring through a Katoto header, after the forward found herself unmarked in front of the empty net, after a cross delivered by Baltimore (1-0, 13').
However, Fabrice Abriel's players didn't give up and even changed their fate by equalising through Kamzyck after Paris lost the ball in midfield (1-1, 41').
For a long time, our Rouge et Bleu believed they would have to share points with their counterparts and could have even been caught off guard by a lightning-fast counter from Kouassi, whose attempt narrowly missed the post (86'). But through sheer dedication and courage, Les Parisiennes found a breakthrough right at the end of injury time. Just seconds after believing they should have been awarded an obvious penalty for a foul on Chawinga, Groenen received the ball in the box. The Dutch international unleashed a powerful curled shot that found the top corner of Ngazi's net (2-1, 90+6').
A hard-earned success that will do a lot of good, just a few days before facing Bayern Munich on Matchday 2 of the UEFA Women's Champions League group stage, taking place at Stade Jean Boutin this Thursday.
Another important match for which Les Parisiennes will need all your support.
