Led by Bordeaux (1-2) on Sunday, in the final of the Coupe de France, PSG ended up making the difference thanks to their replacements. Claire Lavogez may have been exaggerating by calling Bordeaux a “Petit Poucet” at half-time, at the microphone of Eurosport. But the Girondines came close to the feat against PSG (1-2) Sunday, failing at the gates of the first Coupe de France final in their history. It was not until the 84th minute before seeing the young Danish Signe Bruun, barely entering the game, give the advantage to PSG (2-1) at the conclusion of a rush of Sandy Baltimore, another substitute. Perle Morroni was therefore right at the break, saying that the Parisian bench would end up ” make the difference “.
The Bordelaises will be able to feed regrets, because if Katia Snoeijs had opened the scoring against the course of the game in the first period, taking advantage of an insecure back pass from Ashley Lawrence (23rd, 1-0), the Dutch striker and her teammates have long resisted the assaults of domineering but clumsy Parisians in front of goal. The players of Pedro Martinez Losa have not abdicated after the equalizer of Irene Paredes (55th, 1-1) after returning from the locker room, with a head. They even almost regained the front in the 73rd minute, the volley full of spontaneity from Khadija Shaw finishing its race on the right post of Cristiane Endler. It would have been cruel for Paris, who also hit the amounts twice: first on a free kick from Nadia Nadim, in the 47th minute, then on a header from Paulina Dudek (90th).
