Summary and lessons learned

For this return to Groupama Stadium and one week after the first victory against Bourg-en-Bresse, Peter Bosz reshuffled his line-up, with the appearance of several players from the Academy. OL quickly took hold of the match and controlled possession thanks to some intense pressing. The opening goal arrived on 15 minutes from Islam Slimani. Just before half-time, Sinaly Diomandé doubled the lead with a rare first-half chance, despite our domination.




In the second half, Villefranche were more ambitious and created a few chances, forcing Malcolm Barcola into several saves. OL, who had slightly relaxed the pressure on their opponents, were less of a threat. The second half of the game and the last quarter-of-an-hour allowed many young players from the Academy to make their first appearance with the senior side. Then, on to the second game of the evening, against Wolfsburg!
