PSG women hand Lyon first league defeat in four years

PARIS (Reuters) - Paris St Germain handed Olympique Lyonnais their first women’s first division defeat in almost four years when Marie-Antoinette Katoto earned them a 1-0 home win on Friday.

Katoto found the back of the net after 10 minutes to put PSG on top of the standings on 25 points from nine games, one ahead of Lyon, who had their 80-match unbeaten streak ended.

It was seven-times European champions Lyon’s first loss in the first division since Dec. 12, 2016.

France internationals Eugenie Le Sommer and Katoto both sustained injuries that could rule them out of next week’s decisive Euro 2022 qualifier against Austria.
