Lyon have finally cut short a terrible series of eight games without a win in the league on Saturday. Summary of the results of the 11th day.
All bad series have an end. Olympique Lyonnais (OL) have finally won this victory after which they ran after eight consecutive games without achieving any success. This 2-0 win over Metz on Saturday (October 26th) should be enough to make the new club coach Rudi Garcia's victory come true.
Memphis Depay, named captain on Saturday, was one of the main architects of this victory in Lyon by opening the mark at the conclusion of a single action per minute. He has in the process obtained a very generous penalty – and not invalidated by the video assistance – finally transformed by Moussa Dembélé (32e).
In the standings, the OL gives itself a little air by going back from the 17e at the 12e place with 13 points while the Messins go down to 19e rank, relegated position. Despite a disastrous start to the season, Rudi Garcia's men are only six points behind Nantes. The Parisian leader, however, is already eleven lengths ahead, despite a match less.
Lille advance, Brest too
In the other meetings, the Losc has found the way to victory by beating dry Bordeaux (3-0). The LOSC, however, lost on injury to his striker Victor Osimhen, released shortly before the hour of play by holding the left adductor. With this good result, the LOSC occupies the third place of the ranking, and will keep it if Marseille does not impose in Paris.
Just behind the rankings is the Stade Brestois, 4e on equal points with Lille after their 2-0 win against Dijon. The Burgundians, who remained on a series of four games without defeat, remain good last after this setback, already the sixth of the season.
Strasbourg, for its part, dates back to 17e place thanks to his narrow victory (1-0) against Nice, who sinks into the soft belly of the championship (13e). Finally, the two meetings Montpellier-Angers (0-0) and Reims-Nimes (0-0) ended on a draw and blank.
Sunday, Rennes will face Toulouse (15 hours), Saint-Etienne will host Amiens (17 hours) and PSG will play against Marseille (21 hours).
