Professional misconduct, the heavy accusation against OL

Olympique Lyonnais did not really have the attitude of a team which played its season this Thursday evening at the London Stadium.

Faced with a West Ham team reduced to 10 and well limited in the game, the players of Peter Bosz almost lost, finding themselves behind after an incredible series of defensive errors on an action. Lyon’s equalizer saved the day, but it’s clearly not enough against a team that was content to stay behind. Without a new flash from Tetรช, OL could even have found themselves late halfway through. If everything is obviously playable after this 1-1 draw in London, the Lyonnais missed a chance to win and show that they wanted to get this Europa League to erase their disappointing season in the league. After the match, Anthony Lopes had it very bad and used very strong words to show his anger.

A semi-final to go for

There are regrets vis-ร -vis the physiognomy of the match. We go 0-0 at halftime. They take this red, it’s a struggle to come to England and we had to be careful. But we started the second half badly, we conceded a goal which I consider to be a bit like a professional fault. We reacted well afterwards, even if I think we could leave with a more positive result. The return will be different. We will have to win to get this semi-final โ€œSaid the Franco-Portuguese OL goalkeeper, who does not understand how his team found themselves in the position of taking a goal against a West Ham formation which did not even try to attack. If the return to Groupama Stadium will necessarily be different, it is not certain that the Hammers open the game more, and OL will have to be much more convincing on the offensive level to seek this qualification more than necessary.
