League 1: Lyon, a victory for the hair

The striker of Lyon, Bertrand Traoré, scores in the victory against Strasbourg 2-0 on 24 August 2018PHILIPPE DESMAZES

Two goals from Martin Terrier and Bertrand Traore have allowed Lyon to hurt Strasbourg (2-0) in the Groupama Stadium on Friday after a boring game on the third day of Ligue 1.

OL, who wins his second win of the season after winning Amiens at the opening of the championship, is temporarily back in 4th place (6 points) while Strasbourg is in 9th place (4 points).

However, if the result is the most important, the overall performance of the Lyonnais has been pretty bad with an accumulation of bad choices and technical awkwardness.

It does not take away the doubts that arise from the defeat in Reims (1-0), August 17, because of the 2nd day.

– Terrier on both goals –

Recruited 11 million in January, but arrived in Strasbourg last summer, where he was loaned out last year by Lille, Terrier let his team suffer by opening the mark late in the first period (42).

A goal full of skill but happy in his design because the pass, missed, Ferland Mendy was clearly directed to Memphis.

Terrier is also the origin of the second goal of Lyon after he had raised the ball to the center line before going to Memphis who served Bertrand Traoré. He eliminated two players before assuring the success of his team (64).

Memphis then missed everything, up to his hair color, and Traore had not done much better than a whole OL team that had assisted Bruno Genesio to make four changes to the competition at Reims.

Houssem Aouar, disappointing at the start of the season, and especially Nabil Fekir, postponed again after the World Cup, came in after the hour and the midfielder certainly had no creativity.

Strasbourg, both defensive and offensive, struggled to control the game, even when the goalkeeper Matz Sels intervened, without much effort at Mendy's attempts (9), a Memphis free kick (16) or Lucas' photo's Tousart (21) and Traoré (51).

A recovery of Tousart after a corner also came close to the post (52).

Racing can regret that it has not been possible to use a few conditions of disadvantages.

Only Lionel Carole was able to push Anthony Lopes, who returned after five games of suspension after the incidents of the OM-OL game of March 18, parade (28).

While Genesio told a press conference that Nabil Fekir was ready to play for at least an hour, OL's guard was a replacement at the kick-off and only entered the field in the 79th minute. minute.

By contrast, Belgian central defender Jason Denayer, who signed with Lyon for four years on Tuesday, stayed on the bench.
