The highs and lows
Lyon secured a 1-0 victory on Sunday evening at home against OM in the “Olympico”, concluding the 20th round of Ligue 1. Find out what caught the attention of the editorial team. Only Kylian Mbappé does better with PSG (7) among current elite players.

The true leader and spearhead of this Lyon team, scoring 7 goals in their last 6 matches. Outstanding. The (very) experienced Serbian showcased his physical presence and technical accuracy in midfield (55 touches, 90% successful passes), while the Nigerian forward was very active offensively.

Exactly what Pierre Sage’s team needed. Brazilian Adryelson, who came on as a substitute, also contributed to the victory. Finally, coherent and effective sporting choices from the Olympique Lyonnais management.

The Moroccan tried everything on Sunday evening, attempting to find as much space and openings with his passes for the forwards. The launching pad of this Marseille team. Not rewarded… OM’s attackers were extremely sloppy in their choices and finishing their actions on Sunday evening.

Iliman Ndiaye, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Luis Henrique managed only one shot on target between them (in the 70th minute) … Paltry. In addition, the offensive players of OM seemed powerless and lacked inspiration against the Lyon defense.

To illustrate this lack of efficacy, Marseille hit the woodwork for the 13th time this season on Sunday evening. Worrying for the rest of the season. OM will have to show much more incisiveness offensively to turn things around.

and cursed by the posts
Another example of this misfortune is the exceptional attempt at audacity and execution by Amine Harit just 3 seconds into the game. The Moroccan tried to lob Anthony Lopes from the halfway line at the kickoff. His attempt eventually crashed onto the crossbar of the Portuguese goalkeeper.

This stroke of genius deserved much better…
