Ligue 1: OL's crazy comeback, LOSC at the foot of the podium... Crazy evening in the North

A crazy scenario. Unexpected. Amazing. Lille, which led two goals to zero, was punished by a euphoric Lyon team in the second period (4-3) and remains fourth in the standings after a crazy match Monday in Villeneuve-d'Ascq, at the end of the 32nd day .

Le Losc scored through Bafodé Diakité, author of a double (21st, 85th) and Edon Zhegrova (37th). Benrahma reduced the score for OL shortly after the hour mark (66th) before the match got carried away with goals from Fofana (81st), Lacazette (88th) and Baldé (90th 1). Lille carried out a bad operation and did not take advantage of the misstep of Brest caught on Saturday by Nantes (0-0).

Losc led twice in this match, 2 to 0 then 3 to 2, before collapsing psychologically, undoubtedly taken by the stakes: overtaking Brest, held in check against Nantes (0-0) on Saturday. Instead, the Mastiffs remain in their niche, in fourth place with 55 points, two units behind the Bretons.

With two matches remaining, the northern club may have missed its last opportunity to obtain a direct ticket for the lucrative and prestigious Champions League, in which case it would be content with the play-offs, which generally do not succeed in the French clubs.

Despite its success, Olympique Lyonnais is still not in the European places, but has come closer. The Rhone club (47 points) is only two points behind Lens, sixth and first virtual qualifier for a continental competition.

This result is as much the result of the self-sacrifice of the Lyonnais as the mental bankruptcy and inexperience of the Lille people. However, they managed an ideal first period, like a boss, biting when they had the opportunities. First by Bafodé Diakité with a superb header after a free kick from Yusuf Yazici (21st). Then by Edon Zhegrova, with a precise and surprising strike if not powerful to deceive the vigilance of Anthony Lopes from outside the area (37th). The Kosovar had just come into play in place of the injured Yazici (27th).

Less successful to the point of losing his starting place, Zhegrova celebrated his goal at length. But that did not prevent Fonseca from taking him out in the 76th minute to bring in an additional defender: Alexsandro. Because in the meantime, Lyon showed its fangs, returning to the score through Saïd Benrahma by surprising the Lille defense in depth (66th). Full of control during the first act, Lille made the questionable choice to manage during the second. What he was unable to do, especially in the absence of his captain Benjamin André, a reassuring and stabilizing midfielder in the heart of the game.

In full swing in this second part of the season, OL then overturned everything in their path thanks to two entrants: Malick Fofana, scorer of the equalizing goal (82nd) ​​after a pass from Mama Baldé, well helped by the tackle missed by Alexsandro. This goal had the effect of a cold shower for the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, almost full for the occasion. But he barked again when Bafodé Diakité put on his savior's cape by giving his team the advantage after a corner (85th).

Here again, Lille, who were playing with five defenders at this point in the match, collapsed, Alexsandro leaving Alexandre Lacazette alone behind his back (88th). Lyon roared one last time to bring down its prey thanks to Mama Baldé (90th 2). But Lille had lost the match well before, mentally, paralyzed by the challenge of putting on their crampons in the Champions League. At the end of that evening, she moved away, perhaps for good.
