Two guards in a big night

This opening match of the 28th day of Ligue 1 saw the two goalkeepers engage in a big duel from a distance.

Rémy Riou, who continues to compensate for the absence of Lopes in the Lyon cage, has nothing to reproach himself for this Friday.

Unhappy on the CSC of Lukeba, he then released the big game in front of Mohamed (36th) and Guessand (50th).

At the other end of the field, Alban Lafont also made saving parades, against Lacazette (45th + 1) and Caqueret (54th).

Very comfortable in the air, the doorman of the Canaries did not seem disturbed by his non-convocation for the next gathering of the France team, while his name came up insistently.

Inspired calf

A rookie of choice for the Canaries.

Well integrated since his arrival this winter from Schalke 04, Florent Mollet delivered a great performance this Friday.

The 31-year-old player, aligned at the tip of the midfield, was very fair, with 100% of successful passes.

However, he was not content to play simple and was able to distill some good balls, like his perfect shift for Mohamed (54th).

Also skilled in one-on-one, his great bridge over Lepenant in the first period proved it.


Caqueret's loss of ball

His match could not have started worse, with a loss of the ball causing Nantes to open the score from the start. Clearly guilty on this goal, Maxence Caqueret tried to raise his head and went very available in midfield.

But the young Lyon midfielder lost too many duels and annihilated several collective movements by a lack of accuracy.

Draft, he could have made up for it shortly after the resumption, but he badly negotiated his duel with Lafont (54th).

Sarr too discreet

Amin Sarr confirms his timid debut in the Lyon jersey.

Moved to the left wing due to Lacazette's return to the top, the young Swedish striker struggled to exist in this match.

Much too discreet, he took no initiative in his lane (no dribble attempted) and did not get the slightest opportunity.

Unsurprisingly, Laurent Blanc decided to replace him at the start of the second half.

Simon can't do it

A match in the image of his season.

Holder in his left lane, Moses Simon tried a lot but he showed too much clumsiness.

Fifteen lost balls, only 69% of successful passes… Very valuable for the Canaries last season, the Nigerian international has a much less dashing 2022-2023 exercise and no longer manages to raise his level.
