Frustration. This word sums up quite well the evening of the Olympique Lyonnais this Sunday in Saint-Etienne. Despite the opening scoring of Houssem Aouar, Peter Bosz’s players once again conceded a draw in the league, this time on the lawn of the hated neighbor (1-1).
A real disappointment, especially since OL had the opportunities to make the difference and widen the gap. “We are very frustrated. We should have realized our chances, scored a 2nd or 3rd goal because we could do it. This is what we lacked to win, observed Maxence Caqueret. You should not hide behind the refereeing even if there are some errors. We should only blame ourselves. Obviously, players who commit hands blame themselves. Anthony Lopes has saved us so many times. We can’t blame him. “
This fault and this red card against the Rhone goalkeeper put the team a little more in difficulty, but since the beginning of the second act, Léo Dubois’ partners were already jostled in great width by the Stéphanois. “We played less well in the second half during which we had less control of the ball. We played ten for part of the second half but we could have avoided taking this goal, regretted the midfielder. The derby is a game apart and it was a great match with a good atmosphere, even if it is unfortunate not to come away with the victory. You have to bounce back and resume strongly after the international break. ” it becomes urgent for this group to take points, under penalty of reliving a season like that of 2019-2020, delicate.
