Strasbourg – OL : pour lancer définitivement la saison (13h sur Téléfoot)
OL are back in competition at an unusual time this Sunday, playing away to Strasbourg on Matchday Seven in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, and the team have the ambition to win to move back up the table.

The context

At all costs, avoid having your alarm clock fail. Two weeks after a frustrating draw against OM (1-1), Lyon will return to competition with a match set to kick off just after lunch, a very unusual schedule for them. The transfer window has closed, the international break is over and the players' heads are occupied only by this ultra-important trip to Strasbourg as part of the seventh matchday of Ligue 1 Uber Eats.


The challenge

Losing momentum after a large victory against Dijon at the start of the season, OL are clearly lacking in points with only seven from six matches played. The team's record is insufficient, but the situation is far from catastrophic. A victory in Alsace, where they had succeeded last season with a 2-1 victory, and Houssem Aouar's teammates could very quickly climb back up the table.




The opponent

10th in last year, Racing Club de Strasbourg have not had the start to the season they wanted. With only three points on the board, they have already recorded five losses in six matchdays. Like OL, their only victory came at home against Dijon. The two teams will inevitably seek a result from this confrontation as an opportunity to reassure themselves.
