Bad weather in Lyon. Not content with chaining up the annoyances in recent days, OL is moreover strongly affected by the coronavirus.
As if that weren’t enough… One point lost in the L1 standings after the Olympico disaster; exclusion from the Coupe de France after the incidents of the 32e final against Paris FC; posters to come under a limit of 5,000 spectators at Groupama Stadium, for the receptions in Paris and Saint-Etienne in particular… And now the covid-19!
Like elite clubs like Angers, Bordeaux or Lorient, l’OL is not spared by the pandemic and its upsurge in positive cases. On the eve of the resumption of training scheduled for Thursday, no less than seven members of the professional workforce available to Peter Bosz would have tested positive for the coronavirus, indicates L’Equipe. Sometimes with complications.
Paqueta, la tuile
Lucas Paqueta, the star player of the Gones, finds himself stranded in Dubai, where he has just spent Christmas with his family. It is already established that the Brazilian will not be able to participate – just like the other screened players – in the winter training camp scheduled in Murcia, Spain, from 1is to January 5. Private 16e of the Coupe de France final, Lyon must return to the pitches on January 9 in front of the PSG, as part of the 20e lifting of L1.
