OL, the end of illusions

The success at Roazhon Park two weeks ago, against a Rennes side quickly reduced to ten men, was nothing more than a trompe-l’oeil. This Sunday, to round off the 13th day of the French top flight, OL welcomed Lille full of good intentions and ambitions. But in vain. The Dogues barely forced the issue at Groupama Stadium (0-2).

The success at Roazhon Park two weeks ago, against a Rennes side quickly reduced to ten men, was nothing more than a trompe-l’oeil. This Sunday, to round off the 13th day of the French top flight, OL welcomed Lille full of good intentions and ambitions. But in vain. The Dogues barely forced the issue at Groupama Stadium (0-2).

As if on cue, Lyon’s first victim was Canadian Jonathan David, who hadn’t scored in the league for three months (0-1, 27th). Tiago Santos was quick to break the deadlock, taking advantage of the Rho’s defensive apathy.he same goes for the clumsy Mama Baldé, who created two clear-cut opportunities in front of Lucas Chevalier.

With just seven points on the board, OL remain bottom of the elite, five points from the waterline, which – fortunately for Les Gones – did not slip away this weekend. Les Dogues, on the other hand, are making rapid progress, climbing back onto the podium just one point behind third-placed Monaco.
