Angers sweep Lyon

The team coached by Peter Bosz suffered a serious correction during his visit to the Loire, losing 3-0 and leaving very bad feelings as in the first day.


The big teams in Ligue 1 are suffering enough to score points in the first two days. On Friday it was Monaco, yesterday it was Lille (0-4 lost to Nice) and today it was Lyon's turn. The Rhone team lost comfortably 3-0 in their visit to the Angers field, adding only one point in two days and leaving feelings that, if no incorporation arrives before the end of the market, do not invite optimism to the rest of the season.

Peter Bosz gives the feeling of not having understood the philosophy of Ligue 1, a competition characterized by punishing those teams that press too high in the rival field and that leave a lot of space to run. The Dutch coach repeated the system he drew last week against Brest and suffered from the onslaught of his rival from the first minute. Angers showed the suicidal pressure of Lyon, always without timing and leaving many spaces behind their midfielders.

After several warnings in which Lopes had to intervene, the first goal, as expected, was from Angers. The locals went ahead through former Celta player Sofiane Boufal, who took advantage of a good cross from Cabot's right and scored on an empty goal after a poor start from Lopes. The Angevins were able to raise their income before the break, but Lopes made up for the first goal mistake by brilliantly repelling a fine shot from 17-year-old Ali-Cho. The clearest for Lyon was Toko-Ekambi, who missed a fantastic pass from Aouar and could have radically changed the game's script.

Nor Caqueret's entry through Paquetá at half-time could improve Lyon, which again suffered the counterattacks from Angers led by Ali-Cho, Fulgini and Boufal. If the game seemed like it couldn't get worse for the Rhone team, Marcelo took it upon himself to put the finishing touches on a morning to forget. The center-back, beaten throughout the game, scored at his own goal after a misunderstanding with Lopes, increasing Angers' advantage and putting Lyon around his neck. To make matters worse, Cornet was in charge of torpedoing the match even more after seeing the second yellow in the umpteenth gallop of Ali-Cho, who played the game of his life at the age of 17 against one of the best teams in Ligue 1. The young man Ounahi closed the account with a beautifully made goal after a fantastic team move by Angers, which is placed as provisional leader of the Ligue 1.
