CareerEdit

Malard started playing football in Saint-Denis FC, in her native island of Réunion. She joined the Olympique Lyonnais in 2014, signing her first professional contract in July 2017 with the European champions.[2]

For the 2019–20 season, she was sent on loan to FC Fleury 91 to gain some game-time,[3] which did not prevent her from joining back Lyon for the Uefa Champions League Final, taking part in the victory as a substitute.[4]

On 18 September 2020, Malard made her debut for the France national team in a 2–0 victory against Serbia.[5]

In January 2020, she was named by UEFA as one of the ten most promising young players in Europe[6]
