Olympique Lyonnais continues its almost perfect start to the season. This Wednesday evening, OL won against Auxerre (2-1), during the fifth day of Ligue 1. At Groupama Stadium, Tete (29th) then Karl Toko Ekambi (72nd) put theirs to the test. shelter, before Mathias Autret revived his team at the end of the game (80′). In the end, Peter Bosz’s men held on and are still undefeated. With one more game less, they find themselves in fourth place in the provisional standings of the French championship, while AJA are eighth.

He was one of the players particularly criticized at the start of the season. Karl Toko Ekambi, holder in all matches at the start of the Ligue 1 exercise, responded on the field. First by turning into a decisive passer, for Tete (29th, 1-0). The Brazilian is more than ever OL’s top scorer in the top flight this season, with this fourth goal.

Bosz, many promises, little concrete


Riou decisive at the end of the meeting

An Auxerre goalkeeper who was not really idle, as in the first period, during a good Lyon sequence, which saw Maxence Caqueret (18th) or Alexandre Lacazette (18th) be dangerous on their attempts. The Lyon captain even scored after the break, but his goal was finally canceled for an offside position by Tete (50th). He even came up against Alexandre Coeff, who came to replace his goalkeeper on his line (22nd). His replacement in the 86th minute, Moussa Dembélé, also almost joined the party, on his first ball, but he was unable to deceive the vigilance of Benoît Costil (86th).

Meanwhile, the Auxerrois had been able to reduce the gap. It was said that Lyon, which however, as usual, monopolized the ball (62% possession), was not yet going to record its first clean sheet, at the start of the Ligue 1 season. this meeting, the Lyonnais, who shot 20 times but who therefore clearly lacked realism, made a mistake, on a seemingly innocuous corner. Nobody was placed in cover and the men of Jean-Marc Furlan took the opportunity to go against. A counter concluded by Mathias Autret (80th, 2-1), who becomes the top scorer of his team, with this second achievement.

Just before extra time, the decisive passer, Gaëtan Perrin, trained at OL, then almost threw a cold, when he chained control of the right shot from the left, but he came up against an impeccable Rémy Riou and therefore decisive (90th). A Lyon goalkeeper who ends this interim with seven points taken out of nine possible. Against Angers (Saturday, 7 p.m.), Anthony Lopes, who served his three suspension matches, should find his place. Auxerre, undefeated since the first day and its rout against Lille (4-1), sees its series of three games without defeat come to an end. As for Lyon, it is a third victory in four games. But stability is not there yet.
