Filtered GA data does not match data with the same criteria in GA segments

We are a  University and have lots of studies. I used Data Studio to create a document for each study. I did this by buiding in a filter that looks if the pages of the study were visited. Before I did this i did this with a segment per study in GA. I hoped Data Studio would save me a lot of time. But unfortunately the data in DS and GA doesn't match. The number of sessions in GA are much higher then in DS. Did i do something wrong? The daterange is the same by both.


Example of a Study:


Data Manager - 1.788 Sessions

> Dimension: Page

> Matchtype: Contains

> Expression: /studeren/studieoverzicht/applied-science


Google Analytics - 4.061 Sessions 


> Page contains /studeren/studieoverzicht/applied-science
