OL reassure themselves against Feyenoord

The slap received against Willem II had particularly annoyed Peter Bosz. With the start of the season approaching against Ajaccio on August 5, OL were not reassuring in their summer preparation and had to react at all costs against Feyenoord Rotterdam this Sunday. To do this, the Dutch technician lined up a team that should look like an eleven-type. Still in 4-3-3, Lepenant, as a sentry, was supported by Reine-Adélaïde and Paquetá. In front, Lacazette was accompanied by Tetê and Toko Ekambi in attack.

Better technically, more on pace and above all much better athletically, the Lyonnais got into this game well by putting their foot on the ball and controlling the start of the game. Despite a few defensive errors, like Mendes losing the ball in his area (3rd), OL were convincing and managed to open the scoring thanks to a fine long shot from Lacazette, with the help of the post left (1-0, 32nd). His second goal since returning to his favorite club.

OL show a better face

Before half-time, Reine-Adélaïde could emerge on a corner from Paquetá to make the break (2-0, 45th). After this rather successful first period in Lyon, where Gusto, Toko Ekambi, Lacazette and Tetê were able to show off, the pace then fell after the break. Feyenoord could even try to worry the Rhodaniens, but Lopes was vigilant after a close range recovery from Danilo (68th). Lacazette then thought to offer himself a double, but Tetê was signaled offside (70th).

Without being perfect at the end of a choppy second half and where fatigue was felt, OL were able to show a more convincing face with serious performances from their best players and did not concede a goal. Before starting the season, Bosz’s men will have one last big test to perform against Inter Milan on July 30.
