The start of the OL season is complicated. After the epic in the Champions League, the breath has fallen since the return of the championship. And the leaders had released the excuse of the agitated transfer window for the stars that are Aouar, Depay and Dembélé. The transfer market is now closed and will no longer parasitize the minds of players. For their first match after this deadline, the Rhone won in Strasbourg (3-2) and want to continue this Sunday against Monaco to regain the top of Ligue 1.
Consultant for BeIn Sport, Luis Fernandez believes that this goal is achievable, and that the Lyonnais have an advantage over their direct competitor from Marseille or Lille: “We feel that it is a team that is in the process of looking for itself. This is a team that has not yet found its football. But not to play the European Cup is an advantage. The club can concentrate on its championship ”. A bad for a good ? In any case, OL could well be inspired by what OM did last year, which finished 2nd in Ligue 1 without playing in the European Cup.
