Five out of five for OL. Already assured of finishing at the top of Group A of the Europa League, Lyon continues its flawless performance, with a fifth success in as many games. Peter Bosz’s men won on Brondby’s lawn this Thursday (1-3). A victory acquired thanks to his nugget Ryan Cherki. The 18-year-old international Under-21 scored a brace that revived the team in the second period. In two weeks, the Gones will therefore have the opportunity to make a success of the cardboard at the reception of the Glasgow Rangers for the final day of the group stage.
However, it was not all easy against this Danish club who had scored only one goal in the competition so far. With a largely reworked starting lineup consisting mainly of usual replacements and its captain returning from injury (Dembélé), Lyon delivered a very disappointing performance for nearly an hour. OL have long stammered their game, with an obvious lack of rhythm and a lot of clumsiness in the transmissions.

Cherki changed everything
The team was even punished at the start of the second period. On a balloon stupidly lost near its surface. Hedlund took the opportunity to cross at the far post. And Uhre won the ball victoriously within six meters (1-0, 50th). An opening of the score which stung the Rhone formation. And particularly Rayan Cherki who turned the meeting upside down in less than ten minutes.
He first nabbed the ball in the feet of Riveros in the area to equalize from the left (1-1, 57 ‘). He then made a number on the right side before entering the truth zone and triggering a shot at the near post which left the Danish goalkeeper Hermansen (1-2, 66th) in place. Thanks to the coaching and the entry of the usual holders Paqueta, Toko Ekambi, Guimaraes and Caqueret (75th), Lyon mastered this end of the match. The goal of Slimani’s header (1-3, 76th) securing an expected victory.
