Following the meeting between Olympique Lyonnais and LOSC, the columnist from Amazon Prime VideoBenoît Cheyrou, returned to the match and Lille’s performance.
The former LOSC player, who went to the northern club with his brother in the 2000s, supported the good copy made by Paulo Fonseca’s players despite the score in favor of Lyon: “There is nothing to worry about. In the first half, they had control of the midfield. It was obvious. There was always a free player with Angel Gomes. It forced Thiago Mendes out and Lyon found themselves in an inferior position. By finding Angel Gomes more frequently, Lille could have taken more balls into the penalty area and therefore brought even more danger. There was also a good reaction from Lyon in the second period. On some of Jonathan David’s choices, we can say if he could not have done better. It’s hard to blame him for the choice of the lob that hits the bar. But on certain actions, he sometimes made the wrong choice. »
