After eight league days, OL’s record is mixed. After a good start, the Lyon club has stalled for three games. What awaits him between now and the World Cup will say a lot more about his goals for the second half of the season.
This 2022-2023 season is special. With a World Cup placed in the middle of winter, the various championships had to adapt and Ligue 1 was no exception. With the imperative of the World Cup, the first part of the season was very tight with fifteen days planned in the space of three months. The objective was therefore not to miss the kick-off and to make a false start. L’OL understood it better during the first five days with a 13 out of 15. But for three games, the machine has jammed and the counter has remained stuck at 13 and especially three defeats in a row.
« A championship is a marathon and it’s consistency that counts. Since the start of the season, OL have been able to do better on this point, noted Fabien pujocoach of GOAL FC in As long as there are Gones, Monday. When you are already at -7 from your target, you must at least be at the same level before the cut.
Since Monday, theOL has entered a period of international truce which should allow everyone to put their heads back together. The series of three defeats is logically a black point but we must now find the levers to stop this spiral. Because between October 2 with a trip to lens and on November 13 with the reception of Nice, a very busy schedule awaits OL. In one month, the men of Peter Bosz will face Toulousereindeer, Montpellier, Lille and theOM. Seven days that will give a real insight into Lyon’s ambitions this season.
