Olympique Lyonnais still lost ground on the Ligue 1 podium despite a point taken against PSG. The hope of finishing on the podium is further reduced.
The most optimistic of Lyon supporters will say that what Peter Bosz’s players showed on Sunday evening at Groupama Stadium is reassuring and can give hope, but in accounting terms, OL are 11th in the Ligue 1 standings. 11 points behind Olympique de Marseille, third in the Championship. Obviously, this famous match against OM remains to be played, a priori on January 26, but even in the event of victory, Lyon will still be 8 lengths behind the Marseille club and above all will be only tenth tied with Lille. In other words to return to the podium and get a ticket for the Champions League, the club of Jean-Michel Aulas must chain the victories and count on the missteps of many teams, some of which are running at full speed. If Peter Bosz displayed a certain confidence in the corridors of the Lyon stadium after the point taken against Paris Saint-Germain, some share his opinion more difficult.
Lyon has not won in Ligue 1 since November 28
On the set of the L’Equipe channel, Ludovic Obraniak brutally brings Olympique Lyonnais back to reality. ” I believed in OL strongly in the middle of the first part of the season, but now I’m having a hard time believing it. For me, I don’t believe them capable of making a series. I saw their match in Bordeaux where they had control over the match and then in 5 minutes everything exploded and they could even lose the match. They have the capacity to liquefy at strategic times, it is hopeless. Each time we tell ourselves that yes they will come back, but they will not come back. From a financial standpoint, this could be serious. How long has it been since they won in Ligue 1? November 28 in Montpellier! (…) In recent years, this type of slump has been recurring in Lyon “, Noted the former player, who does not believe in a return to the top of Olympique Lyonnais this season.
