Women's Champions League: PSG and Paris FC victorious against AS Roma and Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain beat AS Roma on Thursday December 14 in the Women's Champions League (2-1), their first victory this season on the European scene after two defeats against Ajax Amsterdam and Bayern Munich. Captain Grace Geyoro on a penalty and striker Marie-Antoinette Katoto allowed the Parisiennes to get back into the competition.

This success was crucial for Parisians with their backs to the wall, especially since Bayern and Ajax neutralized each other (1-1), giving a very homogeneous group C. The Munich women are in the lead with only five points, one more than Roma and Ajax, and two more than PSG, still last after this third day.

The Parc des Princes seems to have brought luck to PSG: after losing in Amsterdam against Ajax (2-0) then at the Jean Bouin stadium, neighboring the Parc, against Bayern (1-0), the Porte d'Auteuil has was the scene of the first victory and the first Parisian goals in this campaign.

Return match Wednesday December 20 in Rome

French internationals Grace Geyoro, scorer then assist, and Marie-Antoinette Katoto responded at the right time, just before and just after half-time. Just like goalkeeper Katarzyna Kiedrzynek, who stopped a penalty (54th). The reduction of the score by the Italian international Valentina Giacinti on the hour mark was ultimately in vain for the Romans.

Paris will go to Rome next Wednesday to hope to get ahead and really get on the road to the quarter-finals. With Lyon's victory against the Norwegian club SK Brann on Wednesday and that of Paris FC on Thursday against Real Madrid, it is the first time that French clubs have achieved a full success.
