Ignition delay for PSG. Les Parisiennes were beaten by Chelsea for their first Champions League group stage match (1-0), Thursday, October 20, at the Jean-Bouin stadium in Paris. GĂ©rard PrĂȘcheur’s players were trapped by a volley from the English European champion Millie Bright on a corner at the half-hour mark.

For this second Franco-English battle, the day after OL’s rout against Arsenal, PSG failed to restore the image of D1 Arkema. Too tender, the Parisians suffered a good part of the meeting against solid Blues, carried by an excellent Sam Kerr, 3rd in the Ballon d’Or. Guilty of some defensive largesse, as on the corner which led to the English goal, the players of the PSG especially did not make the weight offensively. Without their star rookie in attack Lieke Martens, who tested positive for Covid on the eve of the match, they framed their first strike in the 60th minute only. Insufficient to hope to dominate the reigning English champions.

The Parisiennes will have to resume their second match, Wednesday, October 26. They will move on the lawn of Real Madrid, leader of the group after their victory against Vllaznia a little earlier in the evening.
