Lyon defeat Guingamp to win first match of the season
Olympique Lyonnais today defeated EA Guingamp 3-0 in front of 2474 spectators at the Stade de Gerland. A solid performance from the guests, particularly goalkeeper Emmeline Mainguy, saw Lyon remain goalless until the 43rd minute when Lotta Schelin found the back of the net on a corner, assisted by Camille Abily. 
In the second half, it was Schelin again who ensured a Lyon win as she finally got the ball past Mainguy in the 83rd minute. Ada Hegerberg then added a third goal - her first competitive goal for her new club - in the 88th minute assisted by Louisa Necib. 
Lyon will next play newly promoted side FC Metz, who lost their first game 2-0 to ASPTT Albi, on September 7. Goals: Schelin (43’, 83’), Hegerberg (88’).
Lineup: Bouhaddi – Petit (Majri 46’), Kumagai, Renard, Dickenmann – Henry, Bussaglia (Hegerberg 46’), Abily – Le Sommer, Schelin, Necib (Traore 89’).

The FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Bronze Medallists: France

Do you think, that France will win tomorrow? And what do you think about Claire Lavogez?
Anonymous

I do think they are going to win. It is not going to be easy, North Korea has an excellent team, but if France play as well as we have seen them play, I think they will win. I have been impressed by Claire Lavogez for a couple of years now. She appeared to be struggling a little against Germany, but overall she has been outstanding in this tournament. I hope she joins Lyon someday!

Mylaine Tarrieu is on crutches with a swollen knee but she has not undergone tests yet. From what I am hearing, it looks as if she is going to be ruled out for at least a month or two.

Update: Tests have confirmed that Tarrieu will be unable to play for two months.

Highlights: Poland 0-4 Sweden
