The 2009–10 season was French football club Paris Saint-Germain's 11th season in Division 1 Féminine and their 9th consecutive season in the top division of French football. PSG was managed by Camillo Vaz - in his first season since replacing Éric Leroy. The club was chaired by Pierre Noguès. Paris Saint-Germain was present in the 2009–10 Division 1 Féminine and the 2009–10 Challenge de France. After finishing eighth in the last championship, Paris SG began the campaign with the desire to continue their progress among the elite and work hard for them to conquer their first major trophy. Following a disappointing 2008–09 season, Éric Leroy resigned and Camillo Vaz took over as manager in June 2009. Camillo Vaz was supported by assistant coach Karine Noilhan, who had been in charge of PSG's DH squad. Paris Saint-Germain entered the new season with great ambition and signed French internationals Élise Bussaglia, Julie Soyer and Jessica Houara during the summer transfer market. Camille Abily, Sonia Bompastor, Zohra Ayachi, Charlotte Poulain and Stéphanie Legrand also joined Paris Saint-Germain. The capital club started the season looking to finish within the top five in Division 1 and to pull something off in the Challenge de France.[1]

Division 1 Féminine[edit]

PSG against Montigny.

Paris Saint-Germain dominated Saint-Étienne from the start and were rewarded with a victory thanks to goals from Nora Coton-Pélagie and Laure Boulleau.[2] PSG's first match at home served to confirm their good start to the season by earning a great win over Soyaux.[3] Paris Saint-Germain recorded their third consecutive win courtesy of a narrow triumph away to Toulouse as they reached the second spot, levelled on points with leaders Olympique Lyonnais.[4] Paris Saint-Germain returned home and claimed a narrow victory over archrivals Juvisy in the first derby at the Parc des Princes. With a record 5,892 spectators, PSG started the game brighter and Caroline Pizzala's cross from the left was met on the penalty spot by Camille Abily.[5] Paris Saint-Germain defeated Hénin-Beaumont by a four-goal margin.[6] Sixth game, sixth victory and still no goals against after "Les Rouge-et-Bleu" recorded another impressive victory at the Camp des Loges against La Roche, which allowed Paris Saint-Germain to keep up with Lyon at the top of the table.[7]

Paris Saint-Germain ended their run as they conceded a draw against third-placed Montpellier but climbed to the top spot in the league thanks to the Hénin-Beaumont's surprising victory over Lyon.[8] "Les Parisiennes" claimed a narrow victory over Montigny as PSG had yet to concede a goal.[9] Paris returned home and recorded a crushing victory over Saint-Brieuc.[10] Paris Saint-Germain conceded a last minute goal, their first of the season, which gave Lyon the draw, but maintained the top spot.[11] Camille Abily, on loan from Los Angeles Sol, was transferred to Gold Pride.[12] Paris Saint-Germain recorded a crushing victory over Yzeure thanks to a stunning hat-trick by Sonia Bompastor.[13] Sonia Bompastor, on loan from Washington Freedom, and Camille Abily, on loan from Gold Pride, extended their stay until 1 March 2010.[14][15] The capital club claimed the honorary title of winter champions, which rewarded the good work of the technical staff and the excellent atmosphere in the team. Unbeaten since the start of the season, PSG recorded 9 wins and 2 draws with 32 goals scored and only 1 conceded.[16] Camille Abily's early goal gave PSG a narrow victory over Soyaux.[17] Camille Abily scored a hat-trick to give PSG the victory over Toulouse at the Camp des Loges.[18] Paris Saint-Germain recorded a great win against Hénin-Beaumont and allowed PSG to maintain the top spot.[19] Paris failed to defeat La Roche and conceded their second goal of the season, but maintained the top spot. Sonia Bompastor and Camille Abily returned to their respective clubs, after their six-month loan at the capital expired. Robin Leproux handed them a bouquet of flowers thanking and recognizing their vital participation throughout the season.[20]

After being unbeaten for 17 days, Paris Saint-Germain retained the first place but was surprised by a determined Montpellier. A goal from Élise Bussaglia just after the break gave emotion to the match, but the damaged was done.[21] On their rescheduled match, Paris lost the top spot to Juvisy after suffering a crushing defeat to their arch-rivals and registered their third consecutive match without victory, a streak which coincidentally began after Bompastor and Abily left the club. Juvisy scored early and despite PSG trying to equalize, the "FCFJ" killed off any remaining hope on the second half with two goals in ten minutes.[22] Paris Saint-Germain defeated Montigny by a large margin of goals, retaining the second place.[23] PSG walked over Saint-Brieuc with a crushing victory as Candice Prévost scored a hat-trick.[24] PSG was looking to get back in the fight for the title against Lyon. The match was an opportunity for Lyon to get revenge as PSG had eliminated them in the cup semi-finals a few weeks ago. Both clubs had shared points in their first league match and it seemed to be a very balanced meeting. "Les Parisiennes", however, underperformed and narrowly achieved a scoreless draw against a dominant Lyon.[25] PSG secured a 3rd place finish after their victory over Yzeure. The title, however, was not lost as the capital club looked for a victory and wished both Lyon and Juvisy were defeated.[26] Paris defeated Saint-Étienne at the Camp des Loges, thus concluding an excellent season which saw the club win the Challenge de France and finish in 3rd place.[27] PSG midfielder Élise Bussaglia was nominated for the UNFP Female Player of the Year but the trophy was awarded to league top scorer and Stade Briochin player Eugénie Le Sommer.[28]

Challenge de France[edit]

PSG players celebrate winning the Challenge de France.

Paris Saint-Germain entered the 2009–10 Challenge de France season having last reached the final in 2008. Last season, they were eliminated in the Round of 32 by Le Mans. PSG entered the competition during the Round of 32 phase.[29] Paris were pitted against Montigny.[30] Nonna Debonne headed the opener after a good cross from Julie Soyer, before Montigny equalized through Rachelle Bracchi. After the break, Laure Lepailleur's last-gasp goal qualified PSG to the last-16.[31] Paris were pitted against second tier club Le Mans.[32] After a very close match, scoreless in regular and extra time, Paris took revenge and qualified for the quarter-finals on penalties, leaving Le Mans empty handed.[33] Paris Saint-Germain then visited Hénin-Beaumont looking to reach the semi-finals, where a match versus Olympique Lyonnais looked very likely to happen.[34] Caroline Pizzala, Cindy Thomas, Laure Lepailleur and Jessica Houara scored in the first half. After the break, Hénin-Beaumont scored twice through Pauline Crammer, but the capital club advanced to the semi-finals looking for a spot in the Final.[35]

The match was an opportunity for both Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon to get back on track their domestic seasons through cup glory. Paris Saint-Germain, meanwhile, had the chance to get revenge, as history had pitted these sides together in the cup before. It was in the 2007-08 edition, when Lyon clinched their third title after defeating the capital club by a 3-0 margin at the Stade de France. Having withstood the French champion in the first half, Paris Saint-Germain conceded three goals in the second period.[36] Both clubs had shared points in their only match of the season and this seemed to be a very balanced meeting. Paris Saint-Germain opened the score through Caroline Pizzala, but Lyon quickly equalized through Isabell Herlovsen. Despite a host of chances for both clubs, Paris Saint-Germain, in a thrilling scenario, earned a dramatic win, 3-2 on penalties over OL after extra time couldn't separate them. Like their male counterparts, they qualified for the Challenge de France Final, the equivalent of the Coupe de France, and, in their second final, they looked to clinch the club's first major title against three-time winners and defending champions Montpellier.[37]

On 23 May 2010, Paris Saint-Germain captured the Challenge de France becoming the club's first major title and most prestigious honour to date. The capital club captured the cup by defeating Montpellier 5–0 in the final at the Stade Robert Bobin. The scoreline is the largest gap in the cup's young history. It is also the first time in French football history that both the male and female sections of a club occupy both the country's national cups. The male section of Paris Saint-Germain claimed the French Cup on 1 May. "Les Parisiennes" controlled the match from start to finish and Ingrid Boyeldieu opened the score after Candice Prévost's volley bounced off the crossbar. After the break, Caroline Pizzala doubled the advantage after a good cross from Jessica Houara. PSG found the third after Houara set free Nora Coton-Pélagie, who killed Montpellier's remaining hopes. Élise Bussaglia, with a 25-yard shot, and Pizzala, with her second of the night, rounded up the scoreline.[38]
