Facing the 4-4-2 presented by the Girondins de Bordeaux, the Gones made a rather encouraging start to the game. It was a bit sluggish all the same and the front three did not offer enough mobility to allow the media to be effective at creation. Aouar still made a number on the left side overflowing Tchouaméni and Briand, before getting rid of Kwateng, then hit full on Costil (8th). Debates were rebalanced slowly and the pace, already low, became apathetic. Only Terrier was trying to get out of this nap start with a shot that ended in the goalkeeper's gloves (22nd). Discreet until then, Depay woke him all this sleeping little world.
Bordeaux may have regrets
Launched in the back of the defense, the Dutch international managed to cheat Costil a cross shot despite a closed angle and opened the scoring (1-0, 31st). He already signed his fourth goal of the season. Now led to the score, Bordeaux was trying to take control of the leather but without any danger for the opponent. Grouped, Lyon awaited the end of the first period. Once the break passed, we attended the same match as last year, at the same pace as Montpellier. OL could not regain the upper hand, nor to raise its level of play. Worse still, the Rhodaniens allowed the Girondins to return to this meeting.
The fault at first Thiago Mendes, who left his partners to ten after a second logical warning (61). It was necessary to hold the score but the return of Tousart instead of a Queen-Adelaide not to his advantage for this first did not change much. After several attempts, it is logical that Bordeaux equalized. Impérial on a double intervention against Benito and De Préville, Anthony Lopes did not have time to get up and saw Briand score despite the presence of Andersen on the line (1-1, 67th). In this end, OL continued to suffer and felt the warm breath of second Bordeaux goal on the back of the neck. Finally, he never arrived despite several dangerous situations. Lyon conceded a draw at home but was hot and must still progress to compete with PSG.
