Anthony Lopes: why Lyon's last rampart is crumbling


Less sovereign than in previous seasons, the Olympique Lyonnais goalkeeper seems to be going through a crisis of confidence. At the worst moment for his club in the race for the podium.

An unhappy goalkeeper chases another on social media.

Regularly used by mocking Internet users to symbolize the powerlessness of OM, the photo of Steve Mandanda's defeated mine has given way to that of Anthony Lopes, who went four times to look for the ball at the bottom of his nets during the rout. Lyon against Paris Saint-Germain (2-4) on March 21.

It would be daring to rest on the shoulders of a goalkeeper all the goals wiped by his team.

The fact remains that this season, Lopes has already conceded 31. Twelve more than the rising star of Lille Mike Maignan and nine more than the crack of PSG Keylor Navas.

Its stopping percentage remains within its usual standards, around 72%.

More than the numbers, it is the impressions left by the Portuguese international on the ground that question as his club seems less and less able to relaunch in the race for the title.

A big mistake against AS Saint-Etienne
