OL – Toulouse: Lyon forced to draw at Groupama Stadium

The expected explosion did not happen. After four straight losses, Lyon couldn’t do better than a draw at home against promoted Toulouse (1-1). Despite a quick opening, Peter Bosz’s players were unable to pack their bags. Worse still, they were logically joined in the score. They remain stuck in a very provisional seventh place, eight points from the podium. The evil is profound for this confirmed candidate for the podium.

The philosophy of Lacazette and Bosz: “Obviously it is not clear to everyone”


However, it all started off perfectly. The 4-4-2 chosen by the Lyon coach pushed the team to face the match on their own. And on his first foray into the Toulouse area, Tetê opens the scoring, with a deflected shot from Keben that catches Dupé on the wrong foot (1-0, 2nd). Enough to put OL in the best possible position for the rest of the game. Except that Lacazette and his teammates never put in the rhythm and intensity necessary to beat a TFC that was not always imperial in defense.

Lyonnais too feverish in defense

Despite this, the Gones had some great opportunities. But neither Lacazette (23rd and 45th), nor Tolisso (41st), nor Reine-Adélaïde (74th and 75th) could not make the Toulouse goalkeeper startle, author of seven saves. Despite the warnings, TFC never panicked and applied their game plan to the letter. Over the course of the minutes, the Haute-Garonne club played fearlessly and took the measures of an increasingly feverish opponent. .

After a Spierings shot on the crossbar (43rd) and a post hit by Ratao (62nd), the Violets were logically rewarded for the effort made by his Brazilian, who entered the game, full of composure, beat Lopes with a cross shot on the ground (1-1, 67). The guests could have hoped for the three points even by playing a few more shots in a slightly more equitable way. It would have been cruel for Lyon, who still didn’t deserve it and performed better than last weekend. However, the site remains immense for Peter Bosz. Provided he keeps his job.
