Like Paris Saint-Germain against Wolfsburg, Olympique Lyonnais failed to recover… Beaten at home (0-1), the week passed, the Rhone club was knocked out on penalties at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea (1 -2, 4-3 tab), this Thursday, in the quarter-final return of the Women’s Champions League.
Long ineffective, the Lyonnaises nevertheless found the opening in the last quarter of an hour through Gilles (77th). During extra time, the Fenottes even made the break thanks to Dabritz (110th) … before cracking about additional time on a very generous penalty agreed to the English and converted by Mjelde (120th + 8). On penalty shootout health, Renard and Horan missed their attempts.
Eight times winner of the event and defending champion, OL will therefore give up their throne in the weeks to come. A qualification that allows Chelsea to find FC Barcelona in the last square.
