Foot OL – OL: Lyon has only one dream, the famous Europa League Conference! – Olympique Lyonnais

After the victories of Monaco, Strasbourg and Nantes, Olympique Lyonnais has already given up on the Champions League and the Europa League. It only remains for him to dream about the C4.

OL supporters will have to choose between the Sunday roast and the match of their favorite team, since it is this Sunday at 1 p.m. that the LFP has set the date for the meeting between Metz, practically already condemned to Ligue 2 , and Olympique Lyonnais. In a relatively good series, since they took nine points in 4 games, and above all scored 16 goals, Peter Bosz’s players have unfortunately already lost some illusions even before the kick-off of the match at Saint-Symphorien. Friday evening, the victory of AS Monaco in Lille definitively closed the door of the podium of Ligue 1, and therefore of the Champions League, to the club of Jean-Michel Aulas, since Lyon is now ten points behind the Principality club and OM with only three games left to play. And the rest is no better.

Lyon in the Europa League Conference, there is still a chance

Regarding 4th place, synonymous with the Europa League, Rennes are seven steps ahead of OL, and the Strasbourg-Nice duo have five, the Alsatian victory in Brest not having done Lyon’s business, no more. than that of Nantes in the final of the Coupe de France against Nice. Because the Azureans only have Ligue 1 left to hope for a European ticket, the Canaries being them in C3. And fifth place, the only position seriously possible for OL, will be synonymous with the Europa League Conference and nothing more. A competition which does not really make people dream, and which, like the defunct Coupe de la Ligue, only seems to excite the clubs which go to the final. For this, Lyon must win everything and count on two defeats from their rivals. What give enormous regrets when we see the big increase in pressure from the team of Peter Bosz, who admitted this week at a press conference that the pieces of the puzzle had been put in place a little late.
