Olympique Lyonnais won 2-1 away from home against third-placed Paris FC. This game was level pegging with Paris FC trying to play offensively against a team stronger on paper in Lyon.

Positively for Lyon, Delphine Cascarino unlocked the game with an individual goal after 38 minutes and Selma Bacha delivered a perfect pass to Ada Hegerberg a minute later for the second goal. Goals for Lyon from Delphine Cascarino (38), Ada Hegerberg (39). Goal for Paris FC from Théa Greboval (45+1). Red card for Sophie Vaysse (64), Paris FC.
