OL on the podium, Duluc has a clear opinion!

Olympique Lyonnais left with the point of Lens’ draw, which is not really a good deal in the race for the podium.

After their convincing victory against OGC Nice last weekend, Peter Bosz’s team finally hoped to continue in Ligue 1 and get a little closer to the Holy Grail of a place on the Ligue 1 podium. the Bollaert storm, and facing a Lensoise team still as well intentioned to play, Anthony Lopes and his teammates failed to win, taking a rather flattering point. In the standings, Olympique Lyonnais could therefore still lose points compared to Marseille and Nice, which is obviously not a good thing. Even if we must be careful not to draw conclusions since there are still 12 games to play, and 36 points to take, OL will have to continue one day or another, because the current rhythm does not allow to resume enormous ground compared to the rivals at the time when the pace is accelerating seriously at the top of the championship. For Vincent Duluc, even if this draw in Lens is not a good operation, the Lyonnais still have to believe in it.

OL have a good rhythm but a bit late

The journalist from L’Equipe, who has been following Olympique Lyonnais for a long time, believes that everything can still turn in the right direction for the club of Jean-Michel Aulas. ” Overall, this draw does not break Lyon’s momentum, at least in terms of result: OL took 14 points out of 21 in 2022, i.e. two points per game, the average needed over the whole of a season to go into Champions League, but that is not enough on one half, of course (…) The reality is that OL have saved the essentials, but without following up on the bases that would maintain their hope of finishing on the podium, and without the promises of the previous week, on an individual level, having all been kept (…) If OL risk drastically moving away from second place, this weekend, the podium is not completely inaccessible. Provided, all the same, to really chain, one moment or another “Explains Vincent Duluc, who therefore leaves the door still a little open for a ticket to the Champions League. For that it will be imperative to win next Sunday against Lille on pain of starting to seriously worry about the team of Peter Bosz.
