After ASSE – OL : a bad habit
This is a sad, inevitable observation. OL have lost a lot of points since the start of the season. The reason? Lyon are conceding too many goals in the last moments of matches. Facing Saint-Etienne, Les Gones, saw the victory and the three points disappear because of Robert Beric. Despite a surge of pride and a breath of fresh air after the result in the Champions League, the team's poor run of form continues in Ligue 1 Conforama. In the derby, OL conceded a goal in the last five minutes, as it had in three other meetings.
Amiens – OL (2-2) : 90+1’
It seemed like a hard fought victory, but still three point were to be gained. Faced with a much weaker opponent on paper, the visitors were picked from the first minutes by a former player (Christophe Jallet). After suffering throughout the second half, OL were finally punished by another ex-player. On a devastating spinning shot, Mathieu Bodmer pulled out the draw to the chagrin of the Lyonnais. Already in a difficult period, the Rhone club are far from knowing what's to come...
OL – PSG (0-1) : 87’
After two superb home victories against the Parisian side, Jean Michel Aulas's protégés had the opportunity to make a run of three. With a defensive-looking side, the hosts of the Groupama Stadium brilliantly resisted the waves of Paris' attack. While everyone hoped for a point from the draw, Neymar ended OL's hopes on a superb bit of individual skill. Unlike last season, however, the goal at the last minute was for visitors.
Brest – OL (2-2) : 85’
It was a complicated match that awaited Sylvinho's players in Brittany. Against a fierce Brest side, Lyonnais showed a poor face to their play. Despite the opener by Moussa Dembélé who managed to scramble past the opposing defense, the castle collapsed little by little. After twice leading, and being caught out a first time, Jason Denayer's teammates saw the opponents come back a second time and Yoann Court registered a double.
