While the Pailladins were preparing to suffer, a new event was to raise the temperature when Koné was expelled for a bad move on Delort (52).e). From then on, the pattern was clear: the Lyonnais pushed to return to the score and the Montpellier operated against, hoping to exploit the spaces left by their opponents. The Herault public trembled on the strike Lyon captured by Rulli (66e), he roared of pleasure on this attempt of Delort diverted for a corner (73e) before reserving an ovation to Florent Mollet (in all the good shots for his return to the competition) on his release. He was then able to exult during the final whistle that has confirmed the success of his family. In the wake of his coach Michel Der Zakarian and his staff, this team has heart and talent. At the end of a wonderful evening of communion with their audience, the players of the MHSC thus inflicted on the Lyonnais their first setback of the season and especially offered their first victory in the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Talent, play, heart and victory, parties like that, we want more !
Match fact: souquet, as aguilar !
It was known that Arnaud Souquet was working in the same post as Ruben Aguilar, who started this summer in Monaco. We knew that, like him, he had grinta and good offensive skills … But what we did not know was that the former player from La Gantoise was going to give us a remake of the supersonic hit of Ruben last year against Lyon. A magisterial volley full of power, balance, accuracy and rage that pierced the nets of Lopes. This first magnificent goal (following a corner obtained by Andy Delort) is also the 1st goal conceded by the Lyonnais this season.
