Merci Sylvain :)

1/16th final against Monteux today, OL won 7-0, but Lotta may be injuried (adductors). Amel Majri (a 18 year old offensive midfielder/forward) came off the bench early in the match to replace her. She scored her first goal with the pro team while french international forward Eugénie Le Sommer scored 5 goals.

OL lineup:

Pons - Dusang, Viguier, Renard, Kaci - Henry (Cruz 46e), Nécib, Bompastor (Abily 55e) - Le Sommer, Schelin (Majri 10e), Dickenmann.

Ingvild Stensland and Corine Franco back from injury
« Reply #82 on: May 12, 2011, 07:12:37 PM »
The trainer of Olympic Lyonnaise, Patrice Lair, was pleased to welcome back Corine Franco after injury recently.  On Thursday afternoon he was also able to welcome Ingvild Stensland to training.  After her back surgery last winter the Norwegian international player had a meeting with the club's physical trainer Antonin Da Fonsceca.  

"I am very happy to return to Lyon.  Now I only want to go on the pitch with the girls.  I had a big back operation and then rested in Norway to start my training.  It has been a long and difficult process.  But the most important thing is to be back training with the girls", the midfielder told us.

Patrice Lair was also pleased.  "I am very happy she has returned.  It's a minor miracle.  Now we will have to see what happens on the pitch.  It's a bonus for us", he said.

Ingvild Stensland and Corine Franco are expected to play in the reserve team at the weekend, and will be aiming to make it into the OL team for the Champions League Final on May 26 in London.

With only eleven days to the Final of the Champions League against the Germans of Turbine Potsdam, Olympique Lyonnaise made short work of Saint-Etienne, taking their 21st straight win over a team they had already beaten 6-0 last weekend.

After some weeks of absence the fastest player in the League, Elodie Thomis, put squibs under the Saint-Etienne defence in the first half with four decisive passes.  The first went to striker Eugenie le Sommer, deputising for Lotta Schelin, who opened the scoring in the 7th minute.  Thomis then served up the second goal to Louisa Nécib after a burst of speed on the right wing only a minute later .  

The Thomis show continued with a masterful back-pass to Camille Abily for 3-0 in the 17th minute, and the performance was repeated with another goal, this time a header in the 37th minute by Abily served up once again by Thomis.

At half time Abily and Thomis were replaced by Lara Dickenmann and Sandrine Brétigny.  Brétigny took only a minute to score the 5-0 goal, before Louisa Nécib played the 1-2 with talented substitute Amel Majri to score in the 58th minute.  Finally Brétigny (7-0, 86) and Nécib (8-0, 90) rounded off a perfect day in front of a highly impressed crowd of spectators.    

OL 8  St. Etienne 0 (4-0)
Goals: Le Sommer (7), Nécib (8, 86, 90), Abily (17, 37), Brétigny (46, 86).

OL:
Sarah Bouhaddi -
Wendie Renard, Laura Georges, Sabrina Viguier, Sonia Bompastor (capt.) -
Amandine Henry, Camille Abily (Lara Dickenmann 46), Shirley Cruz -
Elodie Thomis (Sandrine Brétigny 46), Eugénie Le Sommer (Amel Majri 56e), Louisa Nécib.

Lyon 2-0 revenge over Turbine Potsdam
« Reply #84 on: May 27, 2011, 06:03:19 PM »
Wendie Renard and Lara Dickenmann scored as Olympique Lyonnaise saw off Turbine Potsdam on Thursday at Craven Cottage.

Lyon became the first French team to win the Women's Champions League by avenging their defeat to Turbine Potsdam in last year's final. Goals in each half from Wendie Renard and Lara Dickenmann settled an exhilarating encounter at Craven Cottage. Lyon's vibrant victory served as persuasive evidence to the club's watching chairman, Jean-Michel Aulas, that the millions of euros that he has invested in a bid to turn Lyon into a durable continental force is bearing fruit.

Potsdam's hopes of retaining their title suffered a setback before the start when their top-scorer, Yuki Nagasoto, was found not to have recovered from a knee injury suffered on international duty for Japan. But her absence did not discourage the German champions from attacking from the outset. In the opening 10 minutes Lyon goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi was forced to make two fine saves with her feet, first from a close-range volley from Viola Odebrecht and then from a low drive by Fatmire Bajramaj.

Lyon were never likely to be on the back foot for long. This is the team that eliminated Arsenal in the semi-final and won the French league by a landslide, with an average of five goals per match. Their winger, Elodie Thomis, a promising sprinter who was persuaded to try football at the age of 13, began to cause havoc down the right and combined well with Lotta Schelin, Lyon's Swedish striker who missed last season's final with an injury but seemed intent on making up for it here.  Schelin profited from Nagasoto's misfortune to move ahead of the Japanese at the top of the competition scoring charts, where both had been level on nine goals. Yet Lyon's first real goal threat came from an unexpected source when Louisa Necib almost scored directly from a corner.

Lyon threatened to take charge after that and Schelin and Camille Abily went close on several occasions. The powerful running of Isabel Kershowski down the left, and the sharpness of striker Fatmire Bajramaj, meant Potsdam threatened intermittently on the counterattack but in the 29th minute Lyon got the goal their pressure warranted. A corner triggered chaos in the Potsdam box and, after keeper Anna Felicitas Sarholz made a point-blank save from Schelin, Renard reacted faster than the defenders to scramble the ball over the line from close range.  Sarholz had to act adroitly to prevent Lyon from extending their lead moments later, hurtling off her line to block a Schelin shot at the edge of the area.

As in the first half Potsdam started the second half positively and should have equalised with a minute of the resumption, but after a dainty cross by Bianca Schmidt, Inka Wesley mistimed her header from six yards out. Babet Peter erred in similar fashion in the 57th minute after being presented with an inviting opportunity following shoddy Lyon defending at a free-kick. Now it was Lyon who were playing on the counter, and Thomis could have capped one swift break with a goal in the 50th minute but instead shot straight at the goalkeeper when clean through.

Potsdam cranked up the tempo and their superior power started to show as they began to punch holes in the Lyon defence.  But they could not beat Bouhaddi, who denied Kershowski with another fine save with her feet after an hour.

It is against Lyon's instincts to defend for long and there was no chance of them attempting to cling on for the final whistle. They rallied; twice the referee turned down strong penalty appeals after sweeping breaks, and in the 84th Sarholz had to pounce at the feet of Dickenmann to prevent the Swiss international from consolidating Lyon's victory. It was only a momentary reprieve for Potsdam, as one minute later Dickenmann surged undetected into the left-hand side of the box, took down a cross from the right and fired an unstoppable shot into the net from 10 yards.

Lyon (4-3-3): Bouhaddi; Renard, Georges, Viguier, Bompastor; Necib (Dickenmann 56), Cruz, Henry; Thomis (Le Sommer 73), Schelin, Abily. Subs not used: Pons, Stensland, Bretigny, Kaci, Majri.

Potsdam (3-4-3): Sarholz; Schmidt, Peter, Henning; Zietz, Wesley, Odebrecht, Kemme; Kershowski, Bajmaraj, Mittag. Subs not used: Schumann, Demann, Lowenberg, Bagehorn, Wich, Cramer, Schroder. Booked: Bajramaj.

OL Ladies defeated Toulouse 5-1 in D1 today as they played their last game of a beautiful season.

Goals from Schelin (21', 23'), Dickenmann (33'), Abily (40') and Brétigny (55')

OL Ladies:

Bouhaddi (c.) - Franco, Georges, Viguier, Renard - Abily, Stensland (45' Cruz), Bompastor - Le Sommer, Schelin (45' Brétigny), Dickenmann (45' Majri).

OL won all their 22 matches this season and thus set up a new record. They also send Toulouse in Division 2 at the same time.

It's great to see Franco and Stensland back on the pitch after their long injuries.

On a funny note, the FFF's last ridiculous joke was to forgot the trophey, so the players will have to wait to have it. (Tomorrow in Paris, as I heard).

Anyway, it's the end of a very successul season for OL Ladies, having just failed at Juvisy in French Cup 1/4 final. And thanks to the UEFA, they got the CL trophey in time last thursday.


PSG defeated Montpellier 1-0 in extra time and will be the other french team in the 2011-2012 Champions League campaign.



To sum up the season:
-Huge Schelin and Dickenmann, especially in 2011.
-Having Abily and Bompastor back helped the team a lot.
-Franco and Stensland major injuries forced Patrice Lair to readjust the defensive side and it became worse when Dusang torn her ACL later in the season.
-On the overall, strong performance from the two remaining defensive mids Shirley Cruz Trana and Amandine Henry.
-Wendie Renard confirmed her good 2009-2010 season, became a french international and started to score a few key goals.
-Young winger Amel Majri won a spot in the first team and should get more playing time next season.

Stensland: "now it's a 2-day party"!
« Reply #88 on: June 05, 2011, 08:29:43 PM »
Norwegian player Ingvild Stensland sat on the bench through the Champions League Final, but celebrated along with the other Olympique Lyonnaise players.  After arriving back in Lyon around 3 a.m. she and her teammates planned a party lasting two days.

The team started the celebrations out on the grass at Craven Cottage before the trip back to Lyon in their private plane.  "The president of the club owns a restaurant, so we are going straight there.  It's a bit late but that doesn't stop us.  There will be a party all night and through the morning.  We are going to party for two days", said Stensland to VG Nett.

Lyon were aiming for their last league match the following Sunday, but were already champions with 21 wins from 21 matches and were not too worried about the need to prepare quietly.  "We deserve a party now", said Stensland.

The Norwegian international player with her white hairband and number four on her shirt celebrated with her teammates at Craven Cottage and got to lift the Cup after UEFA President Michel Platini delivered it after the match.  "This is huge! the biggest thing you can win as a club player.  Even if I didn't get to play I was very pleased to be with the squad.  It's tremendous to have experienced something like this", she said.

The 29-year-old has been out with an injury since December and has been recovering from back surgery.  She warmed up through the second half, but did not get the call to make herself ready.  "I had good feelings anyway.  Now I have to tune my form for the World Cup", she said.

Stensland played from the start when Lyon beat AZ in the Netherlands earlier in the tournament, and played 90 minutes in the 5-0 win over Rossiyanka in November last year.  In June she is off to Germany with Norway's national team for the World Cup.    

From the bench she saw Wendie Renard score the 1-0 goal after a lot of to and fro in the Potsdam penalty area after a corner in the 27th minute.  The French team mostly had good control and stopped all the Germans' attempts.  Five minutes from the finish substitute Lara Dickenmann put the finishing touch to Lyon's win.

Lyon - Turbine Potsdam 2-0 (1-0), Craven Cottage.
14,303 spectators.
Ref: Dagmar Damkova, Czech Rep.
Yellow card: Camille Abily, Lyon  
Goals: 1-0 Wendie Renard (27), 2-0 Lara Dickenmann (85).

All change at the home of the double european champions.
Due to the men's side not qualifying for the champions league and also building a new ground, the budget is going down by a fair bit, so there will be a lot more players leaving than coming in.

In : Elise Bussaglia ( PSG), Laura Agard ( Rodez AF) Laetitia Tonazzi ( Juvisy)

Out : Sandrine Bretigny (?) Sandrine Dusang (?) Louisa Necib (?) Aurelie Kaci (?) Celine Deville (?)
Shirley Cruz (?) Laura Georges (?) Rosana (?) No official confirmation for the destination of potentially departing players

Big CL-QF win for Olympique Lyonnais
« Reply #91 on: March 20, 2013, 10:07:37 PM »
Olympique Lyonnais had a 5-0 win over Malmö FC today in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, with goals by Elodie Thomis, Lotta Schelin (2), Camille Abily and Louisa Necib.  OL were on top throughout but the Swedish visitors had a couple of scoring chances, mainly created by their only dangerous player, Ramona Bachmann.  The question on Eurosport was whether any team can step up and give OL a serious challenge in the final two rounds, when they turned up with such a strong eleven that players like Eugenie le Sommer, Shino Ohno, Sabrine Viguier and Megan Rapinoe were on the subs' bench.

Should have been 4.1 1 bad deflection. A couple of silly mistakes by malmo. Rapinoe had a pretty poor
Match really. Nice to see bompastor ,still a quality player. But will be hard to beat.

The final where there is only the single match is really the only place they can fall, because if they stumble in one of the semi legs they have the other to account for it.

250,000€ winning team
200,000€ losing finalist
50.000€ losing semi-finalists
25.000€ losing quarter-finalists

Olympique Lyonnais signs Hegerberg
« Reply #96 on: July 16, 2014, 04:55:54 AM »
Ada Stolsmo Hegerberg has signed for the big French club Olympique Lyonnais, which has played in the last four Champions League Finals, according to a scoop in the Norwegian tabloid VG.

Hegerberg visited the club last week and stayed until Tuesday when she signed a 2-year contract.  "I see Lyon as the world's biggest club, pure and simple.  There was nothing to question.  The club is ultra professional with an enormous history.  It's great to be part of it.  I have had advice from Ingvild Stensland and she is happy for me", Hegerberg told VG.

Lyon played all the Champions League finals between 2010 and 2013.  One of its stars is the Swedish striker Lotta Schelin who has a salary reported to be two million Swedish kroner (£170,000) per year.

Hegerberg, 19 this month, says that Norway's captain Ingvild Stensland, who played at Lyon between 2009 and 2011, has supported her decision and given her some advice.  She said this is a good move for Hegerberg, who has been at Turbine Potsdam for 18 months.

Hegerberg was in Norway's squad last year at the European Cup in Sweden, and she recently guested in the VG TV studio during World Cup transmissions from Brazil.

Olympique lyonnais are rumoured to have reduced their budget from the previous seasons and you can actually see their squad is short in numbers especially in defense :

http://www.olweb.fr/fr/feminines/effectifs-125.html

3 goalies, 4 defenders, 8 midfields and 4 forwards 19 players. One more defender is expected and you never know she might be British  ;)
