After the international break, football returned to D1 Feminine, with the most surprising result of the round being the defeat of Montpellier H.S.C at the hands of A.S.P.T.T Albi.
Albi provide the shock of the round
Montpellier came into this game missing a lot of key players due to injury but the perceived idea was that they would still have enough quality to pick up three points from this game. Albi did not read the script and proceeded to open the scoring for the game. Montpellier managed to find the equaliser in the second half but Albi found the winner three minutes before the end of regular time.
This result leaves Montpellier further behind Paris Saint-Germain in the race to the final Champions League spot while Albi distance themselves even further from the relegation zone.
Juvisy closed the gap on Montpellier as they overcame Soyaux by four goals to one. Laura Bourgouin scored the only goal of the first half for Soyaux before Juvisy came back to win in the second half with goals from Camille Catala, Amelie Couquet, Kadidiatou Diani and Théa Greboval.
Lyon continue their march to another D1 title
Olympique Lyonnais romped their way to a five goal win over La Roche-sur-Yon. The former champions came into this game without the services of Lotta Schelin who has been ruled out with an injury for three to four weeks but were not troubled as others stepped up to the plate. Eugenie Le Sommer opened up the scoring late in the first half and goals by Eve Perriset, Louisa Necib, Claire Lavogez and Amandine Henry wrapped up the game for Lyon.
The fight for survival continues
Although Guingamp were not involved this weekend (along with PSG), results fell their way and gave them more breathing room from the bottom three clubs. Nîmes could only manage a two all draw with Saint-Étienne. Nîmes went up by two as Elodie Ramos and Laurie Salnier gave the club the lead going into half time. Saint-Étienne came back into the game with goals from Julie Morel and Audrey Chamette.
VGA Saint-Maur were powerless against Rodez as Marine De Souza grabbed a brace in a four goal win for Rodez. Chloe Bornes and Flavie Lemaitre got the other goals in this game.
