Olympique Lyonnais has just invented the quadruple penalty in football. We are playing the 15th minute of this OL-Lorient at Groupama Stadium when Enzo Le Fée leaves alone on goal for Les Merlus. Lyon defender Emerson grazes him and causes his downfall, collecting a severe red card. On the same action, his colleague Denayer is injured. Forced by these two facts of the game, coach Peter Bosz immediately makes two changes: one to replace him, the other to rebalance his defense. And we are missing the fourth penalty: on the free kick which follows the fault, Armand Laurienté, the Lorientais, finds the skylight of Lopes and opens the scoring.
Here is the catastrophic scenario in which OL got stuck for this match of the 8th day of Ligue 1, and from which it will ultimately not be unfortunate to come out with the draw point.
Outnumbered almost the entire meeting, the Lyonnais indeed returned to the score at the start of the second half thanks to Toko-Ekambi, well served by a good recovery from Islam Slimani, himself out injured in the middle of the second half. -time.
In the standings, however, Lyon is not doing a great deal.
While waiting for the end of this day on Sunday, Peter Bosz's men are in 7th place in Ligue 1, already 12 points from PSG.
