After the slap received by OL at the Vélodrome this Wednesday, in a late match of the 10th day of Ligue 1, Opta notes a statistic which should worry Lyon supporters.
They had undoubtedly regained a little hope after the slight improvement seen in Lens (3-2) on Saturday. Four days later, Lyon supporters once again have their eyes turned towards Ligue 2. At the Vélodrome, their team sank this Wednesday in a late match on the 10th day. Unable to compete with the Marseillais who were much more aggressive and much better organized collectively, OL were crushed 3-0 and never gave the impression of being able to turn the tables.

Sage wants to keep hope
At the bottom of the abyss, Les Gones remain stuck in last place in the standings, with only seven points on the clock. This is six less than Strasbourg, first non-relegation, and also six less than Toulouse, the next to go to Groupama Stadium. While waiting for this poster, scheduled for Sunday at 5:05 p.m., Pierre Sage has a little less than four days to find the right formula. The one likely to awaken this team which is heading straight towards Ligue 2.
According to statistics provider Opta, none of the last 14 teams to have scored 7 points or less after 14 matches in a Ligue 1 season (counting 3 points for a victory) has escaped relegation at the end of the financial year. , from Sète in 1947/48 (6 points – 16th out of 18 in the end). A terrible statistic that is enough to make OL fans tremble… “You just have to look at the rankings to realize that we are really in danger,” admitted Pierre Sage on Wednesday evening.
“But there is a duty to work, to fight until the end and to try to take points,” said the Lyon coach. After Toulouse, OL will finish the first leg with a trip to Monaco and the reception of FC Nantes.
