Lyon consolidated their lead at the top of the French Division 1 Féminine with a crushing 4-0 victory over Guingamp in front of around 750 fans in Décines. It was their sixth straight win in their opening six matches of the season and their fifth clean sheet.
Amandine Henry set them on the way with a headed goal in the 37th minute and it stayed that way until mid-way through the second half when substitute Amel Majri doubled their advantage. From then on Les Fenottes were on easy street and Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir made it three a couple of minutes later, before Majri got her second of the game ten minutes from time.
Coach Jean-Luc Vasseur can reflect on an excellent start to the season for his team as the players disperse for the international break. Their next fixture is not until the end of October when they visit Montpellier.
