UEFA Women’s Champions League holders Lyon won 1-0 at PSG in the quarter-final 1st leg, while Bayern Munich beat Rosengård 3-0.

Lyon needed a Wendie Renard penalty four minutes from time to gain an advantage over French rivals Paris Sasint-Germain.

Although Nikita Parris had been denied by PSG ‘s Christiane Endler early, the hosts forced Sarah Bouhaddi into a string of saves.

Chilean star Endler again kept out an effort from Parris in the second half but it was a handball decision against 43-year-old Brazilian veteran Formiga which allowed Renard to give Lyon a late winner, ahead of next Wednesday’s second leg.
