PSG has eight wins and a draw this season, moving two points clear of 8-1 Lyon.

Stanford product Cook, 23, subbed in for the final 21 minutes for PSG while Canadian star Ashley Lawrence went 90 minutes in the shutout win. Canada’s Jordyn Huitema was an unused sub.

Lyon’s record went 14W-2D in the shortened 2019-20 season, 20W-2D the prior season, 21W-1D in 2017-18, and won the last 12 matches of the 2016-17 season after losing 1-0 to PSG on Dec. 12, 2016.
