Europa League – Sparta Prague – Lyon: Led 2-0, OL overthrows Sparta, Lucas Paqueta still scorer

by archysport

Lyon is doing after a completely crazy match. Led by two goals after a catastrophic first twenty minutes, OL recovered perfectly to take the measure of Sparta Prague (3-4). A well-deserved victory despite some fears at the end of the game. Toko Ekambi was again decisive with a brace and an assist. This allows the men of Jean-Michel Aulas to make a full card, with nine points in three Europa League matches. Leader of Group A, Lyon has five units better than its runner-up, Sparta Prague, which it will find in two weeks at Groupama Stadium.

Without its best player Lucas Paqueta, probably left on the bench at kick-off to be late for the chat, Lyon have completely gone through their start of the match. The team showed too much passivity and got eaten up in all areas. Haraslin took the opportunity to score a double (2-0, 4th and 19th). At that moment, it was hard to imagine what to expect.

A very spectacular second period

And yet, OL are back on the right track. Slowly but surely in the rest of the first period. First, thanks to the rise of Guimaraes. Then thanks to Boateng’s bright opening for Toko Ekambi who closed the gap just before the break (2-1, 42nd). Moment chosen by Bosz to launch Paqueta and Emerson in place of the disappointing Kadewere and Henrique. OL’s level then went up a new notch. Les Gones cornered Sparta in front of their own surface.

Aouar quickly equalized (2-2, 53rd) before Toko Ekambi gave a caviar to Paqueta (2-3, 67th), scorer a few moments after finding the post (65th). A logical advantage given the appearance of the meeting. But the unfortunate exclusion of Gusto for two yellow cards (75th) made the end of the match even more thrilling.

Fortunately for OL, Toko Ekambi, again, offered himself a brace (2-4 88th), his fifth goal in three matches in the competition this season, making Krejci’s late score reduction anecdotal (3-4 , 90th + 6). After such a match, Lyon will not even have time to savor. Because a trip to Nice is already looming this Sunday (kick off at 1 p.m.).
