Assured of finishing second in Group G, OL tackled the sixth and final matchday of the Youth League group stage. Their opponent, RB Leipzig have already been eliminated from the competition, regardless of the result, and therefore played for honor.
With changes on both sides, the two teams were cautious at the outset. The start of the match was lacking in attacking flair; we would have to wait until the twelfth minute to see the first shot, from Bradley Barcola. Opportunities were scarce and Lyon, who dominated their opponents on the day, failed to open the scoring. The match went back to the locker room on without either side scoring (0-0). In an encounter with no real stake, neither side really took any risks.
Les Gones raised their game in the second half. After a first strike that was blocked, Modeste Duku returned to the attack. The captain on the day, he controlled the ball in the middle of the area following a poorly-cleared ball by the Germans and turned the goalkeeper (1-0, 54'). Responding with a flash of pride, the Lispiens leveled but the goal was denied for offside. It was a decision that awakened the visitors, who had several chances in a row. Despite an eventful end to the match, OL stayed the course (1-0) and made their way to the Round of 16 of the Youth League.
