OL can breathe

Opposed to AC Ajaccio at the opening of Ligue 1, Friday evening at Groupama Stadium, Alexandre Lacazette’s OL won (2-1). Not without having doubted.

Very ambitious this season, with the returns of Corentin Tolisso and Alexandre Lacazetteas well as a calendar without any European Cup, theOlympique Lyonnais was keen to start Ligue 1 with a victory when AC Ajaccio came on Friday. The mission is accomplished, with a somewhat laborious success (2-1).

However, Peter Bosz’s players ignited the crowd at Groupama Stadium at the start of the match and a drop from “Laca” allowed Tete to open the scoring (12th). New captain of Les Gones, Lacazette had the opportunity to open his counter by transforming a penalty obtained by Tete (21e). 2-0, facile.

The kamikaze exit of Lopes

Except that the meeting then changed with the exclusion ofAnthony Lopes, author of a violent charge on the opposing striker Mounaim El Idrissy (27th). Lyon thus found themselves at 10 and Thomas Mangani reduced the gap from the penalty spot (31st) in order to revive the suspense.

Ajaccio does not avoid the red card

What was feared happened: the Corsicans, unable to calm down in the duels, also received a red card: Romain Hamouma received a 2nd yellow card after a clumsy charge on Lucas Paqueta (45th + 3).

Equal in number, the Lyonnais did not really master the match in the second half, when the Ajacciens lacked a second wind to beat a solid Rémy Riou.

Bradley Barcola brought a bit of impact on the left wing of OL during the last quarter of an hour, while Tolisso, who did not play preparation, was able to honor his return to the fold. Lyon will have to continue in Lorient, in a week.
