A draw for the U19s, defeat for the U17s
U17: OL 1 - 2 Auxerre
Les Lyonnais can have plenty of regrets. Armand Garrido and Cris' side went down 2-1 to Auxerre, despite dominating large periods of the match. OL were leading 1-0 at the break after Hamza Rafia scored a wonderful individual goal through the heart of the AJA defence. But, unfortunately, Auxerre hadn't had their final word and scored twice in the second half to claim victory. A real shame for the OL U17s...
OL: Wantz, Gahrouri, Salte, Demdoum, Devarrewaere, Rafia, Maolida, N'Dicka, Matam, Belkacemi, Gouiri.
U19: Sochaux 1 - 1 OL
Joël Fréchet and Pierre Chavrondier's lads have every right to feel frustrated after conceding an equaliser in the 95th minute against Sochaux. Pierre Chavrondier was very disappointed for his players: "We played really well. We scored a goal midway through the first half through Escarpit. Moments later we missed a penalty. We just couldn't get that second goal to make the game safe. And then we conceded that set piece goal in the very last second of the game, and a foul on one of our players that went unnoticed. It's a shame because it was a really young side out there and they played really well, with an excellent first half. In the second period, we played on the counterattack, but failed to score. I'm disappointed for the players who really gave it everything."
OL: Garcia - Brault - Lebeau - Ngwabije - Benjeddi - Adel - Tohou Ngague - Dzabana - Kitala (Serber) - Escapit (Kouakou) - Richard.
