France

The title will be decided on the final day of the season after PSG and Lyon played out a scoreless draw. Ellie Carpenter played 79 minutes as both sides looked for the goal that would secure them the three points. 


PSG has the upper hand, with the draw maintaining its one point advantage over Lyon. A win next will secure the club its first French league title and end Lyon's 14-year domination. 

Sweden

Emily Gielnik found herself on the scoresheet in Vittsjö's 1-1 draw with Eskilstuna. It was her third goal in seven games in Sweden. Clare Polkinghorne ran out a full match in the heart of defence. 

Dylan Holmes was an unused substitute but her BK Häcken side defeated KIF Örebro DFF 3-0.
