Against Bordeaux, Olympique Lyonnais wants to roar again


In difficulty in the league, both in terms of results and in terms of state of mind, the Rhone hope to recover against the Girondins this Sunday (8:45 pm).

They only make the effort in big matches, when everything is visible.

But the rest of the time, they don't care.

What can he (Peter Bosz, Editor's note) do about this?

Leave ?

We have to put some rigor in all of this, and what worries me is that Peter Bosz is not the first coach to be the victim of this at this club.

Has it become the culture of the club, to be there in the big matches, and not to make an effort for the rest?

The media release, in an interview with


, is by Raymond Domenech.

To discover

  • Ligue 1 fixtures and results

  • League 1 standings

The words of the former coach of the France team echo the statements of Houssem Aouar, after the new Rhone defeat against Stade de Reims on Wednesday evening (1-2).

We didn't use the intensity we needed.

We did not know how to pack the game, have more chances, and even when we had them, we did not manage to materialize them,

regretted the Lyon playmaker


We must remain united, focused on our objectives because we know that we have a quality group.

But that's not all, and you have to play with intensity, heart and desire.

A worrying situation

Against Reims, the Gones have once again shown certain limits in their state of mind. The Champenois won in stoppage time. The Lyonnais are used to losing points at the very end of the match. Six of the twenty-seven goals scored in added time in the League were against the Rhone side, according to


. A statistically glaring truth about the relaxation they show and their lack of solidarity. With this new setback - the fifth of the season in the league - Peter Bosz's men only point to 10th place in the standings, six points from the podium (at the dawn of the 17th day).

But their situation remains worrying.

Because if they are not at all excluded from the race for the Champions League, the Lyon team does not seem to progress.

No dynamic seems to be setting up.

It remains irregular as much as possible;

capable of winning against an excellent Racing Club de Lens (2-1) as well as being humiliated on the lawn of Stade Rennais (4-1).

Of course, that worries me.

We are tenths.

It's not a place in the standings for us but we are not playing well at the moment.

A physical problem?

No, when that happens at the start of a match, it's a tactical question

, ”said the Dutch OL coach after the defeat against Stade de Reims.

Jean-Michel Aulas defends Peter Bosz

The contrasting results of Peter Bosz in Ligue 1 and the difficulties he encounters in instilling an extra soul in his workforce have not failed to catch the eye of observers ... and to lead to criticism. Jean-Michel Aulas, always quick to defend his club when he is going through a complicated period, wanted to respond to an article published by


concerning the disappointing record in Ligue 1 of the 58-year-old technician, which was to bring rigor and a strong requirement in the locker room: "

This record is too severe, we can also say that a match is missing (OM), the points gap with the podium is limited, the course in UEFA is good 5/5 wins, qualif in 8th insured. I take the bets: OL with Peter will be there

“, Posted the president of Olympique Lyonnais on his




The credit of Peter Bosz is not yet exhausted, because as recalled by "JMA", the Rhone club had the merit of not committing any missteps in the Europa League, winning so far all its matches, in a group widely within reach.

Going out the fangs against Bordeaux

However, in order not to see their ambition to find the scent of the Champions League evenings next season, the Gones must pull themselves together this weekend, against the Girondins de Bordeaux, this Sunday (8:45 p.m.), at the end of the 17th day of Ligue 1. The result of the meeting will be very important for Lucas Paqueta and his teammates.

But the manner and especially the behavior on the lawn will be just as much.

Olympique Lyonnais must prove that they are still capable of showing their teeth.

And to roar collectively: “It

all starts with collective work.

We have to be a team, it is not the best players but the best team that wins

”, explained Peter Bosz on Friday at a press conference.

The Girondins have everything of the perfect expiatory victim.

Antepenultimate in the standings, they remain on three defeats in their last four matches.

However, they absolutely do not intend to let it go and hope to take the three points at Matmut Atlantique.

We're bad.

We must continue to rebel, not give up, because we are in a very critical situation [...] I can tell you that we have the discourse to motivate everyone.

I guarantee you that Sunday against Lyon, we will make a big blow,

"said Jimmy Briand, one of the Bordeaux executives, on

France Bleu Gironde


The match has already started.
