Author of a great match against AS Monaco on Saturday night, OL won this Ligue 1 shock in front of their home crowd (2-0).
L’Olympique Lyonnais of Peter Bosz remained on a frustrating draw during the derby against ASSE (1-1), two weeks ago. But these Gones are now launched this season and it is at the end of a great collective performance that the protected Groupama Stadium defeated theAS Monaco (2-0), Saturday evening, during the shock of the 10th day of Ligue 1. Enough to allow them to take 5th place in front of OM and the Monegasques!
Inspired technically, despite the absence of their crack Lucas Paqueta at kickoff, the Lyonnais dominated the game, counting in particular on a Ryan Cherki voluntary false 9. But Alexander Nübel saved his family, especially in the face of the unstoppable Karl Toko-Ekambi (23rd and 26th). On the other side of the field, Wissam Ben Yedder and especially Kevin Volland (2 good opportunities) played badly.
Paqueta sets fire
The Dutch coach then launched Paqueta and Tino Kadewere after the hour mark, but it’s a tackle fromAxel Disasi in the feet of Léo Dubois who offered a penalty that “Toko” transformed (73rd). Deserved.
Paqueta, two days after his match with the Brazilian Seleçao, then ignited the end of the match and is at the origin, of a blind pass, of the 2nd goal signed Jason Denayer (90th). In a fiery atmosphere that accompanies the rise of OL, which will have to confirm with other posters of the French championship against Nice, Lens, Rennes and Marseille. Just that.
