Lens - OL : L'art du rebond
Two weeks after losing to PSG, OL are back in action in the league. Unaccustomed to losing this season, the Lyonnais have always been able to react after a defeat.

The result hurt, but it didn't bury OL's hopes. The loss against PSG before the break is bound to be a disappointment, but it could be quickly forgotten if Les Gones manage to win on Saturday in Lens. Facing an opponent who have been the league's surprise package will not be easy, but since the start of the season OL have never left any room for doubt and have always been able to get back on track after a loss.




After the first defeat of the season against Montpellier, the Lyonnais went on a 16-match unbeaten streak that saw them fly up the table. When that run ended, OL then headed to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, where they won 5-0 and started another winning run. Finally, when Montpellier won the reverse fixture at the Groupama Stadium, it was Brest that paid the price in a fine reaction from Memphis and his teammates, who won 3-2 at the Stade Francis Le Blé. On Saturday, they will be expected to do the same again, to prove that this reputation for responding to adversity is deserved  and to launch another good run of results which, we hope, will not end until after May 23...
