COMMENTS OF PLAYERS
Maxifoot assigned a score (out of 10) of feedback to every participant.
Man of the Match: Marco Bizot (8/10)
Admittedly, OL lacked effectiveness. His probabilities needs to be sufficient to win. However we nonetheless have to emphasise the good efficiency of the goalkeeper from Brest! The heroic Dutchman impressed Lacazette, Barcola, Cherki and newcomer Amin Sarro. Not forgetting his Caqueret free-kick. Decisive.
Anthony Lopes (6): Much less wanted than his Bizot counterpart, the OL goalkeeper has nonetheless accomplished his job. After an intervention within the center, Honorata launched a harmful free-kick from the Brzesko winger initially of the match. A much less tutorial however efficient cease.
Malo Gusto (6.5): let Lyon followers relaxation assured, the Chelsea mortgage proper wing nonetheless guidelines Lyon. As standard he was very energetic in the fitting lane with some steep climbs. His crosses generally lacked precision, however he was one of many predominant drivers of Les Gones.
Sinaly Diomand (5.5): authoritarian in his saves, the centre-back was unstated by Mouni. Nonetheless, we will blame him for clumsy elevating when he tried to interrupt lanes.
Dejan Lovren (6): Low threat, the Croatian excelled on the ball. Within the faceoff, he confirmed that he was enterprising and a bit too bold after a direct free kick landed within the stands… I am undecided Laurent Blanc will let him strive his luck once more on this train.
Nicols Tagliafico (6): towards an opponent as quick as Honorat, the world champion needed to depend on the assistance of his teammates to restrict the harm. He additionally coated his central protection on a number of events and offered good attacking assist, comparable to his late-game header by Dembl.
Johann Lepenant (4): Aligned within the torchbearer place, the younger midfielder lacked verticality. He typically performed sideways, even from behind, by no means actually making an attempt to interrupt by means of the Brest block.
Corentin Tolisso (6): Accessible within the guard function, the French worldwide performed effectively, typically with precision in his lengthy sport. He was OL’s conductor within the first half earlier than shedding some affect after getting back from the locker room. Substitute seventieth by Thiago Mendes (no no).
Maxence Caqueret (6): Often clumsy within the first interval, his header picture clearly misses the aspect of the cage, the OL-trained midfielder picked up his sport after the break. Extra seen, he tried to impose a better tempo and introduced himself extra. He may have scored the decisive objective if Bizot hadn’t hit the free-kick for a nook.
Rayan Cherki (7): after that, OL will not remorse stopping him from going to Paris Saint-Germain. The playmaker, spectacular in small areas, was concerned in all his group’s good strikes within the first interval! His passes to Lovren and Barcola may have been decisive, as was his volley by Bizot. Much less outstanding within the second act and changed by the seventieth winter buffAmin Sarr (no no)who collided with Bizot on a slide ball simply outdoors the cage!
Alexandre Lacazette (7): Captain Les Gones created loads of issues for the Brest protection together with his stalls. He was adept at combos together with his teammates however lacked success on two clear probabilities. The primary was neutralized by Bizot, and the second was countered in excessive situations by Hrelle.
Bradley Barcola (6.5): Like Lacazette, the younger striker will even remorse his two probabilities towards Bizot. A objective would reward his encouraging performances and marked by excessive accelerations on the ball! Sadly, he lacked precision within the final meters. Substitute the 84th with Moussa Dembl (no no)whistled his entry into the sport and who didn’t have time to put his head.
Marco Bizot (8): see feedback above.
Kenny Lala (7): the picture of his intervention on Lacazette within the space, the previous Strasbourg participant has proven nice solidity in duels. Barcola and Cherki will have the ability to affirm that his proper lane was effectively guarded.
Christopher Hrelle (6.5): An attentive centre-back needed to do his finest within the second interval. He counters Lacazette’s shot, however is within the good place. Earlier than welcoming Amin Sarr to L1 with an authoritarian assault.
Lilian Brassier (7): fairly often on the trajectory of Lyon balls, Brestois appeared to draw them. This, after all, is an indication of a superb place.
Jean-Kevin Duverne (6): like his teammates in defence, the left wing gained vital duels. However he additionally allowed Lacazette to slide virtually alone into objective earlier than shedding a harmful ball.
Hugo Magnetti (5.5): After a primary interval spent principally chasing the ball, the midfielder was extra outstanding within the second act. His restoration work was simpler and he was in a position to put his foot on the ball.
Franck Honorat (7.5): The Stade Brestois winger has accomplished loads of harm to Lyon’s protection together with his velocity! Along with his harmful crosses, he may crush OL twice. However Lopes took the free-kick after which he too believed that his shot was counter-attacked.
Haris Belkebla (6): Sentenced to shut the house within the first interval, the captain of Brest was happier when he returned from the dressing room. His technical finesse allowed him to take the strain off his group when going out with the ball.
Mahdi Camara (3.5): aside from a great breakthrough initially of the match, former Stphanois was discreet on this match. He spared no effort within the defensive block. However as his two fully failed recuperations confirmed, he did not obtain a lot with the ball.
Jrmy Le Douaron (4): boug by Diomand, the striker has lengthy struggled to outlive. He may have awarded a penalty for handball within the first half. He additionally struggled together with his mark on Gusto. But it surely may have ended up as a decisive cross for Honorat, which he despatched completely deep. Substitute eighty fifth by Tariq Arconte (no no).
