At the start of the third day of Ligue 1, OL easily won against Troyes (4-1) this Friday evening. Despite the postponement of its match in Lorient scheduled for last Sunday, Lyon is back in second place while waiting for the other results of the day. With this result, Estac is on its bottom side of the standings with three defeats in three games.
The game: 4-1
“General” Alexandre Lacazette was quick to sanction the Trojans, guilty of laxity. And it was veteran Adil Rami who was on the front line. The French international left a breach in which the former Arsenal striker infiltrated. Taking advantage of a too soft back pass from Rami for Gauthier Gallon, he came to register his second dut of the season (3rd). However, Bruno Irles’ troops were not let down by this early goal. After a foul in the area by Nicolas Tagliafico on young rookie Thierno Baldé, Nicolas Tardieu equalized from the penalty spot (39th). Before the break, Lacazette found another flaw in the Estac defence, but this time Gallon watched over his goal.
As in the first period, the Lyonnais did not hang around after returning from the locker room. After a nice delivery from Tetê, Tagliafico scored his first goal in Ligue 1 at close range (46th). Three minutes later, the Brazilian took the cape of the striker by following well a repelled strike from his compatriot Lucas Paqueta (49th). The former Chakhtior player even offered himself a double on a superb sequence concluded with a well-placed shot (75th). In the second half, the Aube team never managed to make Les Gones doubt.
The player: Tetê, total trust
Recruited in March on loan, Tetê has been one of Lyon’s great satisfactions for several months. The winger continued the momentum of his late season. With 2 goals and 1 assist he is the best player of this meeting. He has been involved in 7 of Lyon’s last 10 goals (4 goals, 3 assists). The Brazilian has been decisive 11 times in as many Ligue 1 days.
Arrived in Troyes in 2019, Florian Tardieu scored 12 goals from the penalty spot (Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 combined). Only Wissam Ben Yedder (21) with Monaco and Neymar (13) with PSG have done better.
