Olympique de Lyon did not go beyond a draw at their stadium against Toulouse (1-1), adding to their fifth consecutive day without a win and leaving their coach, Dutchman Peter Bosz, on a tight rope after losing part of what little credibility He has. leave before the game starts.
After a gruesome result, Bosz needs to win to scare away the ghosts. And more so after consecutively falling to four of the top five clubs in the standings.
Successively, Lorient (3-1), Monaco (2-1), Paris Saint-Germain (0-1) and Lens (1-0), cast doubts on a project that seems to have lost steam against at competitive levels. And it is that, before these setbacks, Olympique Lyon continued to march in Ligue 1 with almost full success in the first five days (only Reims was drawn).
In a twist despite changing the system
The illusion of the first games dissolved like a sugar cube and went from illusion to concern. Outside of the European venues, the match against Toulouse became a plebiscite against Bosz that he could not win.
The Dutch coach changed his system compared to the last game and went from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2 where four new players entered (Malo Gusto, Castello Lukeba, Corentin Tolisso and Moussa Démbélé for Henrique Silva, Sinaly Diomandé, Maxence Caqueret and Rayan Cherki).
Tetê is about to score
The changes had an effect and in the first half Olympique Lyon were ahead on the scoreboard thanks to a goal from Mateus Tetê, who took advantage of an assist from Alexandre Lacazette after two minutes to beat goalkeeper Maxime Dupe through a left-footed shot from outside. the goal.place deflected by Kévin Keben.
Apart from a shot on the crossbar by Mateus Cardoso, Toulouse did not worry their rivals, who spared them before the break with a couple of clear chances from Karl Toto Ekambi. 1-0, for the second 45 minutes, was not life insurance and Olympique Lyon played with fire until they burned.
a devastating goal
Rafael Ratao, who had warned a shot against the post, did not miss with twenty minutes remaining and equalized with a shot that caused more doubts than those that existed before the start of the clash. The final 1-1 will not heal the wounds and Peter Bosz, after five straight games without a win and out of the European places, has lost much of the credibility he had left.
