OL - FCVB / Wolfsburg : Deux confrontations pour de grandes retrouvailles (en direct sur OLTV)
After a convincing victory against Bourg-en-Bresse last weekend (1-5), OL will host Villefranche-sur-Saône and Wolfsburg on Saturday at 6.30pm and 9pm, respectively, at Groupama Stadium. In these two matches, a Lyon side coached by Peter Bosz will hope to build on the impressive display seen in their previous match.

The context



With a preseason focused on their new style of play, and a convincing victory in their first match of the season, the team has made an attractive start to the season. Despite the good performance against FBBP, however, Peter Bosz has demanded more rigor from his players “There is work to be done. The players want to learn a different style of play. The most important thing is to win these matches. I hope the results come by playing with an offensive style that is attractive to the fans. It’s not easy to play attacking football and win matches, but it is possible.


The opponents



To build on the team's fine display and give the team a chance to start this new season on the right foot, Peter Bosz’s men will have to face two opponents of a very different caliber. At 6.30 p.m., OL will face Villefranche-sur-Saône, who are coming off a remarkable season in the National. Last season, the Caladois had made a spectacular comeback to secure a place in the promotion playoffs Ligue 2, only to fall short against Niort.

To end the evening in style, our Lyonnais will take on VfL Wolfsburg. After a long season battling for a Champions League spot, the German side finally managed to punch their ticket for the next edition by finishing fourth in the Bundesliga last season. Wolfsburg will be aiming to start their new season well against a fellow opponent who will be playing European football.
