The Paris Saint-Germain men weren’t the only ones in action on Friday. PSG Féminines welcomed FC Twente to the Georges-Lefèvre stadium in their first match since the coronavirus put a halt to their season.
Although their victory wasn’t as lopsided as their male counterparts, Les Parisiennes did come away with a 4-2 win over the Dutch club with a brace from Marie-Antoinette Katoto and two additional goals from Sandy Baltimore and Kadidiatou Diani.

Despite the match being a close one, manager Olivier Echouafni did give playing time to the entire squad. Newcomer Bénédicte Simon saw some action in this match. Also, several U19 players received minutes, including Laurina Fazer, a 16-year-old midfielder who signed her first professional contract last month.
This friendly also marked the return of two layers to the squad, Signe Bruun and Sara Däbritz.
PSG Féminines are preparing for the Coupe de France semi-final versus FC Girondins de Bordeaux and a UEFA Women’s Champions League quarterfinals matchup against Arsenal FC.
