On Sunday afternoon, OL got back on track in a good way by beating Feyenoord 2-0. However, not everything was perfect, especially the relationship between Alexandre Lacazette and his circles. The profile of the former gunner differs from those of other Lyon strikers.
After the slap suffered the day before by the B team against the modest Willem II, the OL captains made it possible to leave the Netherlands on a good note. The Lyonnais dominated recent Europa League conference finalists Feyenoord at home 2-0. However, if one scrutinizes the details of the Lyon performance, Peter Bosz still has work to improve the content. Although the match’s leading scorer, Alexandre Lacazette did not have the best afternoon of his career. The OL center-forward was difficult to find for his partners in the field.
To find Lacazette, Reine-Adelaide takes time
A statement shared by his teammate, also scorer on Sunday, Jeff Reine-Adelaide. The midfielder conceded having struggled to find the striker, in particular because of the opposing pressure. ” It’s a different profile from Moussa (Dembélé). Today, we have to adapt to him, he is a more mobile player, who moves a lot between the lines. In this match, it was a little harder to find him, they pressed us well so we threw balls, but he will bring us for the future because in Ligue 1, we will often have the ball and we will succeed in exchange with him “, he confided after the meeting.
But, as he pointed out just before, the automatisms should arrive over time and allow OL to benefit from the quality of Alexandre Lacazette. ” We play on the same side with Karl Toko Ekambi, it’s a little easier. We have more space to find each other, while Alex is in the heart of the game, the opponents are closer to him. It’s going to be done little by little, don’t be impatient. I am confident because he is a quality footballer, he can drop out or go deep “, he added. The collective game around Lacazette remains the last detail to be fine-tuned because as far as the Guadeloupean’s scoring qualities are concerned, it is already solid, as evidenced by his magnificent goal on Sunday.
