The announcement may surprise. And perhaps the most loyal Parisian supporters will disappoint. While the stadiums are emptied of their spectators due to health measures and confinement, the PSG club announced on Friday that the duel at the top of the women’s D1 against OL will be played at the Parc des Princes. The long-awaited poster every year, which pits the two contenders for the coronation and the two best enemies of French women’s football against each other, is scheduled for Friday, November 20 at 9 p.m. and should be broadcast on Canal +.
The decision to program this shock of the championship in the usual enclosure of Neymar, Mbappé and their partners was recorded on Thursday, the Parisian club specified to AFP. This relocation for the partners of Irene Paredes is not a first – in 2009 they notably welcomed and beaten Juvisy during the Ile-de-France derby – but remains exceptional.
The women’s D1 is part of the championships maintained by the French Federation despite the reconfinement, the latter having however suspended the second women’s division. OL, French champion without division since 2007, and PSG currently occupy the first two places in the ranking of the women’s D1.
In addition, the club announced that a player had tested “positive for the PCR Sars CoV2 test” carried out Thursday and that she was placed in isolation and “subjected to the appropriate health protocol”. The person concerned, whose identity has not been disclosed, will therefore miss the derby against Juvisy scheduled for this Sunday at 12:45 at the Camp des Loges.
