Lyon won the “Olympico” this Sunday against Marseille (1-0), at Groupama Stadium, at the end of the 20th day of Ligue 1. Incisive and determined from the start of the match, despite an initial shudder on the part by Amin Harit in the third second of play - who tried to lob Anthony Lopes from the kick-off - the Lyonnais, who were much more dangerous than the Marseillais, found the net thanks to their scorer Alexandre Lacazette in the 37th minute of play. Symbol of this anger and this Rhone revolt, the “general” scored his 10th goal of the season, his 6th in 13 confrontations against Olympique de Marseille. The numerous OL recruits, who arrived during the winter transfer window, were very interesting, bringing new blood into the Lyon game, like the experienced Nemanja Matic in midfield and the very active attacker Gift Orban.
For their part, the Marseillais were unable to bring danger to Anthony Lopes' cage. Gennaro Gattuso's men finished the match with only one shot on target and disappointed again. The Phocaeans, very messy like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Luis Henrique, were never able to find the solution against the solid, very well grouped Rhone defense. With this success, OL put an end to three consecutive defeats in the league against OM, climbed to 15th place in Ligue 1 - tied on points with Montpellier and Nantes - and moved slightly away from the red zone. The Phocaeans, for their part, are still marking time after conceding three draws. Azzedine Ounahi's teammates stagnated in 8th place and missed the opportunity to get closer to European places.
