OL – Toulouse: Lyon forced into a draw at Groupama Stadium

The expected burst did not take place. After four consecutive defeats, Lyon could not do better than a draw at home against the promoted Toulouse (1-1). Despite a quick opener, Peter Bosz’s players were unable to pack the game. Worse, they were logically joined in the score. They remain stuck in a very provisional seventh place, eight lengths from the podium. The evil is deep for this confirmed candidate for the podium.

Lacazette and Bosz’s philosophy: “Obviously, it’s not clear to everyone”


However, everything had started off perfectly. The 4-4-2 chosen by the Lyon coach prompted the team to take the game on their own. And on his very first foray into the Toulouse area, Tetê opened the scoring, with a shot deflected by Keben who took Dupé on the wrong foot (1-0, 2nd). Enough to put OL in the best possible position for the rest of the match. Only, Lacazette and his teammates have never put the pace and intensity necessary to bend a TFC which has not always been 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 flinch, author of seven saves. Despite its alerts, the TFC never panicked and applied its game plan to the letter. Over the minutes, the Haut-Garonne club played without fear and took the measure of an increasingly feverish opponent. .

After a shot from Spierings on the crossbar (43rd) and a post hit by Ratao (62nd), the Violets were logically rewarded for their efforts by his Brazilian, who entered during the game. Full of composure, he beat Lopes with a cross shot on the ground (1-1, 67th). The visitors could even have hoped for the three points by playing a few more shots in a slightly fairer way. It would have been cruel for Lyon, who still did not deserve it and delivered a better performance than last weekend. Nevertheless, the site remains immense for Peter Bosz. Provided he keeps his job.
