Lyon have certainly said goodbye to their last hopes of European qualification. A week after having logically dominated Marseille (0-3), second in the championship, Peter Bosz’s players were unable to take the measure of Metz. They totally went through, especially in the first half. And they had to bow to the last in Ligue 1 at kick-off (3-2), which is still alive in its race to maintain two days remaining.
The cheat sheet: A slap that weighs more than three points

With only one change in their starting lineup compared to the one lined up at the Vélodrome (Tetê in place of Barcola), OL delivered a completely tasteless performance until the break. Without desire and without intensity. Quite the opposite of the Messins who, despite some technical clumsiness and bad choices, were able to convert two great opportunities. First thanks to Pajot on a corner (1-0, 27th), then thanks to Lamkel Zé on the counterattack (2-0, 40th). A fair sanction for Lyonnais who were too insufficient but very happy to see Dembélé quickly reduce the gap (2-1, 43rd).
Will OM lose everything? “All the signals are red”
Bosz makes 4 changes at the break
Afflicted by the collective level of his team, Peter Bosz made 4 changes at halftime. What reboost his men who finally put strong pressure in front of the cage of Caillard, author of some decisive parades (46th and 56th). After a good quarter of an hour, the breath quickly died down and Lyon again showed its bad face. To the point of seeing Thiago Mendes logically excluded following a collision on Lamkel Zé who spun on goal (68th).
The end of the match became more unbridled. With great opportunities on each side. De Préville touched the base of the amount on a free kick (70th). Then Tetê saw his shot repelled by the crossbar (73rd). Lopes then had to work to repel a double attempt from the Messin defender Kouyaté (82nd). Enough to allow Dembélé to equalize a few moments later and score his nineteenth goal of the season (2-2, 84th). Despite this blow, the Messins did not give up and the incoming Boulaya sent a missile into the skylight of Lopes (3-2, 90th). Thus punishing Lyonnais who are far too inconstant.
