The Latest: Paris Saint-Germain sent shockwaves around Europe with a 1-0 win over Lyon on Friday to take possession of first place. Marie-Antoinette Katoto scored in the 10th minute to give the hosts the lead and Lyon were unable to reply over the final 80 minutes of the match. Lyon have won the last 14 French titles with PSG checking in runners-up seven times in the last eight seasons. The Paris side can now win the title if they match Lyon the rest of the way and secure an away draw on March 13. PSG did drop points in a draw at Bordeaux in September so for the moment, a split of the two matches against Lyon will not be enough. In other action, Khadija “Bunny” Shaw scored her league-leading 11th goal of the season to give Bordeaux a 1-0 win at Paris FC. Bordeaux maintained a one-point lead over Montpellier for the newly-minted third Champions League spot.

The Latest: A week after hitting the top of the table, Granadilla Tenerife surrendered two points late when Lucia Garcia scored in the 77th and 89th minutes to hand Athletic Club a 2-2 draw. Atletico Madrid returned to the top on goal difference with an 8-1 pounding of bottom-feeder Deportivo de la Caruna. Ludmilla scored four of the eight goals. Barcelona, though, remain in control following a 5-1 decision over Real Sociedad. Barca are two points behind the leaders with three matches in hand. In the relegation zone, Sporting de Huelva were two goals up and 13 minutes away from their first win of the season but goals by Miriam Rodriguez and Queralt Gomez Sarriol in stoppage time lifted Eibar to a 2-2 draw.
The Latest: Only four of the scheduled six matches from the weekend went on as scheduled with leaders Bayern Munich (v. Bayer Leverkusen) among those postponed. At the bottom of the table, Meppen secured their first win of the year, 2-1 over SC Sand who they trail by only a point in the battle to stay in the top flight. MSV Duisburg are now solo bottom and the only side without a win.
