Sotoca, evening hero

It is discreet but is no less important for the Lensois collective.

Useful for his deviations from the head and his precise discounts, Florian Sotoca did not tremble when transforming the victory penalty against a Lopes, however brilliant until then (82nd).

Lucid, the striker scored his 6th goal of the season in Ligue 1, already equaling his total from last season.

Undoubtedly one of the most important goals for his team.

Lens, intense all the way

The Blood and Gold rose in power throughout the meeting.

First in difficulty against a tight opposing block, they were patient to wear down this Lyon defense.

The Franck Haise paw.

The Lensois thus raised their tone after the break by multiplying the incursions, until obtaining this penalty on a hand fault by Thiago Mendes.

A just reward.

Openda has worn out OL

He is one of the revelations of this start to the season in Ligue 1. Loïs Openda was once again a poison on the Lensois side.

The Belgian striker has literally worn out OL and the young Diomandé, who will undoubtedly have nightmares from all his incursions.

Powerful, mobile, he posed big problems for a Lyon rearguard tinkered with the absence of Lukeba.

Author of several attempts, he greatly contributed to this success by tiring the opposing defense.

Lopes delayed the deadline

Defeats follow one another for Lyon but one man has still been beyond reproach, it is Anthony Lopes.

Because the OL goalkeeper has once again pulled out all the stops on several class parades.

Author of 5 stops in total, he will have delayed the deadline against Openda and others.

Stalking his teammates, he ended up bowing helplessly.


Lyon, one defeat too many for Bosz?

4 shots, only 1 in the second half, none on target: OL's record is very poor at the end of this match at Lens.

Coming out of three consecutive setbacks, the Rhodaniens showed no revolt in the face of adversity.

"We don't deserve anything" even declared Anthony Lopes after the match, proof of a certain resignation in the ranks of his team.

To the point of seeing Peter Bosz get fired?

Answer in the next few hours.

Cherki, disappointment

Holder for the first time in Ligue 1 since last February, Rayan Cherki did not take his chance.

Not aggressive enough, he suffered like all of his team.

Positioned behind Alexandre Lacazette, he did not know how to position himself and ended up losing track.

Before giving up his place quite logically.

Thiago Mendes, still on alternating current

Performing despite the defeat against PSG two weeks ago, Thiago Mendes fell back into his many shortcomings in Lens.

Between lost duels, risky reminders and faults committed, the Brazilian had a bad evening on the side of Bollaërt-Delelis.

With as a highlight this hand fault which costs the penalty and a new setback for his team.

He was not helped by a rather feverish Diomandé at his side, even if he had the excuse of starting a match for the first time in a year.
