Olympique Lyonnais recorded their third league match without a win. Les Gones drew with Nimes.
Lyonnais non-existent offensively
Lyon took a point and frankly they did not deserve much better. Les Gones was too shy at the forefront to hope to win. There were only three shots on goal from them. And when it comes to clear opportunities, we can note the failed attempt by Maxwell Cornet in front of Baptiste Reynet (eighth) or an overly axial head from Kadewere (91). A very hungry balance sheet.
In front of a well-organized Gard team, the Olympics did not find the solution to harm. Rudi Garcia tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. It was better after the locker room, but nothing to show off. At the last whistle, the boss had little reason to be happy. By being nice, we can only highlight interesting performances by young Melvin Bard and Rayan Cherki.
The Olympics did not help with arbitration
Even by providing a tasteless service, the locals could still have won. For that, VAR would have to be favorable to them. However, video help frustrated them twice. Only in the 50th minute, with a goal that was denied Moussa Dembele. Then, on the 66th when a hand from Renaud Ripart in the opponent’s area was considered unintentional.
The Olympics must therefore be content with one point. And that’s not so bad considering that Nimes had a chance to open the scoring. Ripart (11th) and Zinedine Ferhat (40th) failed to frame their tests, otherwise they could have hurt Anthony Lopes and spoiled the Lyon night a little more. In the end, it was therefore 0-0 and this result keeps the two teams in the soft abdomen in the table. For Nimes, this condition is by no means infamous. For Lyon, on the other hand, it is undoubtedly a stain.
