Lyon goes first!
Disappointing in the first period, Rudi Garcia's players accelerated significantly after the break in order to dispose of Rennes (1-0), this Wednesday, during the 28th day of Ligue 1. Substitute at kick-off due to a small physical glitch, Houssem Aouar shook the nets of the Breton club in the 74th minute, on a service from Memphis Depay.
The Rennais, under the direction of Philippe Bizeul while waiting to see the arrival of Julien Stéphan's successor, pushed hard at the end, in vain… In the standings, OL took, at least temporarily, the lead ahead of Lille and PSG.
The good operation for the Lensois, only fifth after their success in Saint-Etienne (2-3) - thanks to goals from Sotoca, Kalimuendo and Pereira da Costa - and the defeat of Metz against Angers (0-1).
The Garnets, who lost on a penalty from Angelo Fulgini, also finished at ten after the expulsion of their goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja in the last minutes.
Note the success of Brest on the Dijon red lantern (3-1) and that of Nice against Nîmes (2-1), despite the efforts of the Crocs at the end.
Interesting statistic: the Aiglon Alexis Claude-Maurice scored his third goal in Ligue 1, his third ... against the Gard club.
Continuation of the festivities from 9 p.m. with five matches, including Bordeaux-PSG (live commented) and OM-Lille.
