After OL’s heavy defeat at the Vélodrome this Wednesday (3-0), Clinton Mata expressed his disappointment, convinced that the Lyon players must “look in the mirror”.
A slap. Six weeks after the sad evening of October 29 and the rocking of the OL bus, Marseillais and Lyonnais met at the Vélodrome this Wednesday for a match which this time took place without incident and which saw OM take winning 3-0 without ever trembling, in a late match on the 10th day of Ligue 1.

“We need to talk in the locker room”
A result which allows Gennaro Gattuso’s men to move up to eighth place in the standings, seven points from the podium. Still bottom of the table, OL remain six points behind the first non-relegation team, Strasbourg. For his second outing on the bench, Pierre Sage decided to continue the 4-2-3-1 pattern which had seen his team deliver an encouraging game in Lens last weekend. Beaten 3-2 at Bollaert after showing some progress in the game, Alexandre Lacazette’s teammates this time sank to Marseille soil.
“There is a feeling of disappointment, we were keen to try to have a great match, to continue from the last match against Lens. But today, there are a lot of things to discuss in the locker room” , recognized Lyon defender Clinton Mata after the match on Amazon Prime Video. “It was a very important match. We simply weren’t up to the task. There are things that we will have to say to each other, that will stay in the locker room. We have to know how to look in the mirror,” said he insisted. Lyon will try to secure a second victory this season this Sunday against Toulouse, 14th, at Groupama Stadium.
