OL Women, defending champions, were eliminated on penalties on Saturday in the semi-final of the Coupe de France by FC Fleury 91 (0-0, tab 5-4), who achieved a feat by qualifying for the first final in its history.

In a remake of the 2023 semi-final (won 2-0 by OL), Sonia Bompastor’s players – leaders of D1 – this time did not manage to escape Fleury’s pressing in a low block (6th) . The Lyonnaises were too messy throughout the match, and not efficient enough. Eugenie Le Sommer and Griedge Mbock missed their shots on goal.

This will be only the 2nd time in history that OL will not play a Coupe de France final since 2012. For its part, for its 3rd semi-final, Fleury managed to qualify for the first final in its history .

Another feat, the Ile-de-France inflicted their first defeat of the season on OL. Worse, Sonia Bompastor’s players lost Ada Hegerberg, injured and out after a quarter of an hour of play, replaced by Amel Majri. Sunday (3 p.m.) in the other semi-final, Paris FC hosts PSG, finalist in the competition last year. The Coupe de France final will be held on Saturday May 4 at the Mosson stadium in Montpellier.
