The reconquest season ends perfectly for OL.

The Lyonnaises indeed won their 15th trophy of champions of France on Sunday, with a new striking success at their Parisian rivals (1-0), yet holders of the title.

As a symbol, this season had to know its epilogue at the PSG-OL summit, the most awaited poster of the women's D1, the one that crystallizes the most tensions, the one that also summarizes the gap that separates the first team with the second in the championship.

A flamboyant week

Last season, for the first time in fifteen years, the champion was called Paris and the runner-up Lyon.

But OL, stung by this unusual rout, quickly bounced back: here they are, 24 months later, again at the top of the French hierarchy, eight days after having returned to the happiness of a title in the League of champions, the 8th in its great history.

This royal week indeed started with a flamboyant success against FC Barcelona, ​​disgusted title holders 3-1 in Turin in the C1 final on Saturday May 21.

It ends with a proud victory at the Jean-Bouin stadium, against a PSG at worst, overtaken in the 3rd minute by a goal from Catarina Macario.

A PSG to rebuild

With an eight-point lead with one day to go, OL can no longer be caught.

A draw would have been enough for him on Sunday, but Wendie Renard's partners did not miss the opportunity to beat their rivals for the 4th time in 5 confrontations this season.

These eight points difference, a chasm in a D1 archi-dominated by these two clubs, alone sum up the season of the two teams: almost perfect for OL, disastrous for Paris.

PSG, all the same winner of the Coupe de France, will have to rebuild everything, or almost: its coach Didier Ollé-Nicolle was sidelined after an "inappropriate gesture" towards a player, the affair of the Kheira Hamaroui's aggression continues to pollute the locker room, and major changes are already expected in the organization chart of the women's section.

In the workforce, the expiration of the contract of top scorer Marie-Antoinette Katoto, still the most dangerous striker on Sunday, will be the priority for the next few days.

Sunday, she left the meeting limping, a priori touched in the left thigh, a concern on the eve of the list of Blue for the Euro.

The Parisian ultras still called her to stay "in Paris", songs in support.

The Euro in just over a month

Spectators were just over 4,300 on Sunday evening in a sparse Jean-Bouin stadium, proof that the fervor in the Champions League this season, with several attendance records all over Europe, is still struggling to be sustainable in the French championship. .

To foresee a more followed 2022-23 season, at the stadium or at a distance, the D1 will undoubtedly have to count on a successful Euro of the French in England from July 6 to 31.
