Ligue 1: OL wins its first painful victory against Nantes – teller report


In pain and outnumbered in the last quarter of an hour of play, OL clinched their first victory of the season in Ligue 1 against Nantes who played in the second half. Far from reassuring, Peter Bosz’s men have won on the smallest of margins (1-0) and have garnered three points that do them good.


This is the number of defeats for OL in their last 19 away matches in the Championship. The last time was against Angers, last weekend (3-0). Opta.

The match: 1-0

The Gones were shaking from the first seconds. A low ball loss allowed Osman Bukari to get into a striking position, but Anthony Lopes already had a warm hand. Not afraid, the visitors set foot on the ball against Nantes well grouped together, watching for the loss of the opposing ball. Like Maxence Caqueret, who failed to put his people in difficulty twice in the 14th and then the 15th. Peter Bosz took him out at the break.

It took a long balloon from Bruno Guimaraes to find Paqueta. In the duel with Fabio, the Brazilian international rose, mastered the ball with his chest and led him in front of goal. Alban Lafont pushed back well but, like a fox, Moussa Dembélé had only to push him into the empty goal. The Canaries tried to react on set pieces, Lopes did not give way (37th, 45th).

In the second half, a whole different scenario was being written. Peter Bosz’s men touched the ball much less and the Canaries, emboldened after returning from the locker room, were playing much higher on the field. What to give cartridges to Ludovic Blas, in check three times (57th, 54th, 77th). The Lyonnais responded with individual exploits, without Guimaraes (65th), nor Houssem Aouar (71st), managing to deceive Alban Lafont.

Already in pain, the expulsion of Damien Da Silva, who received a second yellow card in the 78th did not help Lyon’s affairs and offered even more space to opposing attacks. Moses Simon, untenable, brought the danger to the end, but neither he, nor Moutoussamy, nor Kolo Muani managed to deceive Lopes’ vigilance at the end of the match.

In forceps, Peter Bosz’s men have thus won their first success of the season. A match that will leave a bitter taste to those of Antoine Kombouaré, conquerors and attractive in the second half.

He made Léo Dubois dizzy on his side. He tormented him in duels, passed him in depth and opened up spaces to cross and strike multiple times. He who has been decisive passer on all Nantes goals since the start of the season could well have added a few pawns to his counter if his teammates had been more skilful in front of goal.

The fact: Lucas “air” Paqueta

Not necessarily known for his head skills, Lucas Packeta was imperial in the air and easily reached on long balls. His technical accuracy on Dembélé’s goal was the image of his performance in this match.

In extension and in the duel with his compatriot Fabio, he manages to control the ball in the air on a long pass not easy from Guimaraes. Then, as the leather falls to the ground, he subtly turns to stand alone in front of the goal. Although he was neither a scorer nor a passer on this action, it was indeed he who unlocked the match.
