New post for Bayern
Votikova fails to catch the ball but manages to deflect Lohmann’s header onto the post. PSG is doing well on this one. The two-goal lead still holds for Paris.
Both coaches opt for coaching
New changes after Marie-Antoinette Katoto’s second goal.
Jovana Damnjanovic came on in place of Schuller on the German side while Ramona Bachmann replaced Sandy Baltimore in the PSG squad.
19th goal in 25 C1 games for Katoto
Criticized for a supposed lack of realism in big games, Marie-Antoinette Katoto scored twice on Tuesday evening in Munich.
The 23-year-old PSG striker has now scored 19 times in 25 career Women’s Champions League games.
Katoto doubles the bet from a corner
New corner for PSG and it’s 2-0. Once again, Marie-Antoinette Katoto dominates the Bavarian defense and beats the exit of the goalkeeper to score with a header. Doubled from the striker and Paris made the break.
Buhl stumbles on Votikova
Another big chance for Bayern. Very restless at the start of the second period, Clara Buhl hits low to the ground. Votikova releases a superb save and captures the ball.
Post for Bayern
Served in the box by Kumagai, Lohmann found Votikova’s left post. Outgoing post and PSG remains in front (1-0).
A double change to wake up Bayern?
Vivianne Asseyi and Zadrazil exit. Lohmann and Rall replace them in order to blow up this meeting where the level has dropped slightly in this second period.
Big long shot from Hamraoui
Not attacked at 25m, Kheira Hamraoui tries her luck from a distance. The shot from the Parisian midfielder is pushed back painfully for a corner by Leitzig.
Heavy strike from Buhl… next door
Nice recoil-brake from De Almeida but Clara Buhl manages to unleash a heavy shot. It ends up in Votikova’s side netting. Still 1-0 for PSG but we have the first strike of this second act.
A fairly balanced start to the second half
Like the first period, Bayern tries to keep the ball during these first minutes of the second act. But the Parisiennes are quietly turning and are not worried for the moment.
The second period begins
PSG will have to defend their goal in advance and will even try to take a solid option on qualification by scoring one or more others.
Bayern will have to raise their level of play to endanger the Parisian defense where Amanda Ilestedt shines this Tuesday evening.
Paris leads at half-time
A goal from Marie-Antoinette Katoto put PSG ahead in this Champions League quarter-final first leg. If Bayern barely control the ball (52%) the Parisiennes are more efficient in its use.
On the bad news side, German PSG midfielder Sara Dabritz is out after a head-to-head clash. Amina Diallo returned to the field.
Ilestedt as patroness of defense
Amanda Ilestedt fends off a new Bayern cross for a corner. The Parisian defender is a real wall against which the German players stumble.
Another yellow for Bayern after a Diani sprint
Despite her speed Giulia Gwinn cannot resist the power of Kadidiatou Diani. The German left side receives a logical warning for an anti-game foul which put an end to PSG’s counterattack.
Dabritz knocked out and replaced by Diallo
Hit in the head in an aerial duel, Sara Dabritz is stunned and will not resume. Aminata Diallo replaces the German playmaker of PSG. The exit of Dabritz is a blow for Paris.
Dabritz remains on the ground after a head-to-head collision
The midfielder of PSG clears the ball but takes the full force of Viggosdottir. The Icelandic involuntarily headbutts the German from Paris. Sara Dabritz seems a little stunned and Aminata Diallo leaves to warm up after a brief intervention by the Ile-de-France medical staff. The doctor asks for the change.
Schuller’s head…it’s above
New Munich offensive but the head of Lea Schuller passes far above. The referee returns to an offside position of the German centerer. PSG hold on and stay ahead.
Bayern react timidly
Apart from a shot passed far above Votikova’s goal, Bayern have not been able to prove dangerous since Katoto’s opener.
The Germans seem to take the hit. It was up to the Parisiennes to take advantage of it to score the goal of the break before the break and hurt the opposing heads.
Katoto scores the first goal
On the corner that follows, after a header on the crossbar from Diani, Marie-Antoinette Katoto follows well on the small mess in the six meters and scores the first goal of this match. After video verification, the goal is validated.
4th goal in 4 C1 games this for Katoto.
First yellow of the match for Asseyi
After a nice rush on the right wing, Kadidiatou Diani is hooked by the jersey before entering the area. Yellow card for the Frenchwoman Asseyi who will be suspended for the return match. The good free kick is pushed back for a corner by the defense.
Bayern dictates the tempo of the match, Paris against
After a quarter of an hour of play, the tactical scheme of the two teams is clearly legible. Bayern press high and impose a big rhythm with possession of the ball.
PSG plays against but multiplies the inaccuracies and does not really worry the German defense. Katoto overflows in the right lane but his cross does not find anyone and Bayern go back on the attack.
Big opportunity for Buhl, Ilestedt still there
After a nice collective movement, Buhl sees his shot being deflected by Ilestedt. Corner that does nothing for Bayern.
Bayern push, Ilestedt pushes back
New alert on PSG’s goal but Ilestedt pulls out a magnificent tackle to deflect the ball on a low center from the right. Vivianne Asseyi seemed capable of resuming to score the first goal of this match. What a rescue!
The game is balanced
Things are going a little better for the Parisiennes. Didier Ollé-Nicole’s protégés recovered the ball a little more but faced heavy pressure from the Bavarians at the start of the match.
Paris runs after the ball, first alert on Votikova’s goal
Diani’s first foul of the match on Giulia Gwinn and Bayern benefit from an eccentric free kick at 35m. Votikova wants to grab the ball but releases it. The Ile-de-France defense manages with difficulty to emerge.
The Parisiennes project themselves quickly in attack but are countered. PSG goalkeeper Votikova is already forced to intervene on a mid-high cross after just one minute of play.
Nice atmosphere in Munich
The atmosphere rises at the Allianz Arena. The Munich stadium is not full for this first match in the history of the women’s team in the lair of Lewandowski, Muller and other Neuer or Pavard.
If the two top rings are closed, the bottom one is quite well filled. This promises great moments for the players in front of a few thousand spectators. Make way for the pre-match protocol with the anthem of the Women’s Champions League.
Images of the warm-up of the PSG players
The kick-off for this quarter-final first leg is scheduled for 6:45 p.m. The Parisiennes came to warm up on the lawn of the Allianz Arena a few minutes ago.
Note the presence of the French Viviane Asseyi and the former Lyonnaise Saki Kumagai among the holders of the German team.
Bayern’s XI: Leitzig – Kumagai, Glas, Gwinn, Schuller, Viggosdottir, Magull, Buhl, Asseyi, Wenninger, Zadrazil.
The replacements: Runnarsdottir, Beerensteyn, Rall, Damnjanovic, Dallmann, Lohmann, Vilhjalmsdottir, Simon, Landenberger, Kett.
The composition of PSG has fallen
Didier Ollé-Nicole launches his usual 4-3-3 to challenge Bayern.
The eleven of PSG: Votikova – Karchaoui, Ilestedt, De Almeida, Lawrence – Hamraoui, Geyoro, Dabritz – Baltimore, Katoto, Diani.
Replacements: Toussaint, Vol, Cascarino, Luana, Fazer, Diallo, Bachmann, Bizet, Khelifi, Huitema.
A little over an hour before the start of the shock
The Parisian locker room is fine-tuning the last details before the start of this quarter-final first leg of the Women’s Champions League against Bayern in Munich.
See you at 6:45 p.m. for the kick-off live from the Allianz Arena.
The Parisiennes queens of the Expected Goals
With 25 goals scored in the six group matches, PSG have had a flawless run with six wins. Better still, the Ile-de-France club has had many chances with 135 shots in the Champions League, the second highest total behind Barça (190 shots).
But the French club has the best ratio in terms of goals scored compared to Expected Goals. PSG has the best difference (6.1) in C1 with its 25 achievements for 18.9 EG.
The video enters the contention for the quarter-finals
Note that the VAR makes its appearance from the quarter-finals of this Women’s Champions League. The start of the meeting is in just over three hours.
The Champions League, number 1 objective of the women’s PSG
Like the men’s section, the women of PSG dream of winning their first title in the Champions League. Unfortunate finalists twice in 2015 and 2017, the Franciliennes firmly believe in it this season.
First in their group ahead of Real Madrid, they face Munich second in their group behind OL.
“We know very well that today it is a title that we want to win, confirmed the French Grace Geyoro for RMC Sport. All the players want to win a Champions League. is an exceptional competition and the objective is to go all the way. We know that we will have to go through several stages and a lot of very important and enormously intense matches. The Champions League, we can place it in objective number 1. It is an exceptional competition.”
Hamraoui and Diallo, a reintegration at high speed
A few months after the sordid case of aggression against Kheira Hamraoui, the Parisian midfielder and her teammate Aminata Diallo, a time suspected and then cleared, PSG plays a large part of its season during this double confrontation against Bayern.
Outpaced by OL in the French championship, the Franciliennes have made the Champions League their main objective.
Good morning all,
Eliminated by Barça, future winner, last season, the players of PSG launch this Tuesday the assault of a new final phase of the Women’s Champions League.
From the quarter-finals, the Parisiennes trained by Didier Ollé-Nicole faced a formidable opponent in the person of Bayern Munich. In 2020-2021, the Bavarians also left the competition at the semi-final stage. It’s a big piece that awaits the women’s PSG this Tuesday. The first leg of the quarters can be followed live with commentary on the RMC Sport website and app.
