Tops / Flops Lyon-Monaco: Depay on an armchair, SOS defense in Monaco


The still remarkable match of Depay, the percussion of Toko-Ekambi, but also the fragility of the ASM: find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of this meeting between Lyon and Monaco (4-1).


The influential Depay

Repositioned in false nine since two meetings by Rudi Garcia,

Memphis Depay has again been very influential for his team


Free to move, the Dutchman especially achieved a convincing first period by being at the origin of a good number of offensive movements for OL.

Opening the scoring by showing himself lucid in the area (12th), after having been the first dangerous Lyonnais on a shot curled to the side (7th), he was at the origin of two other goals: first on a forward. last precise pass for Kadewere on the 2nd Lyon, then on a clever heel for Toko-Ekambi on the action of the penalty of the 3rd.

More blunt after the break, however, he had other opportunities and was valuable by his ball-keeping qualities.

The stirring Toko-Ekambi

Aligned on the left flank of the attack, the former Sochalien was very impactful on the front of the Lyon attack.

Sharp in his ball calls, he signed a real fox double from the surfaces and caused a penalty.

At the end of the game, he was still there to offer two caviars to Dembélé, who did not make good use of them.

A complete match.

Lopes, present at the right time

If Lyon won by being brilliant offensively, we must not forget the performance of Anthony Lopes.

Because the OL goalkeeper was imperative to keep his team in the game at the start of the game.

Author of three good parades in the first 20 minutes against Jovetic (3rd) and Fofana (11th, 19th), he allowed the Lyonnais to resist in their weak times.

To better knock out the opponent in counter.


Monaco truly punished in Lyon

The scenario of this match has something to

be annoying for ASM


With a possession of the ball increased to 72% at the break, the Monegasques failed to materialize their territorial domination.

The fault of too many approximations in the last 30 opposing meters.

Lacking percussion force, Kovac's men were, moreover, extremely crumbly behind.

Badiashile's nightmare

The young Monegasque defender had a very bad evening at Groupama Stadium.

Regularly overtaken on each Lyon acceleration, he did not agree with his teammate Florentino on an action that benefited Toko-Ekambi on OL's 3rd goal.

A big mistake that weighed down his team even more before the break.

Sidibé, still struggling

After having praised him so much more than three years ago during the ASM championship title, Monegasque supporters have enough to rail against the performance of the French side.

Holder on the left, he was still rather feverish in his hallway, leaving a lot of space.

More forward, he often forgot to defend and even caused a penalty.

He came out at the break due to injury, which allowed him to stop his ordeal more quickly.
