By dominating Toulouse thanks to Memphis Depay, Lyon does not let go Marseille
The men of Bruno Genesio were not to miss a Toulouse badly in point in Ligue 1. Without Mariano, nor Fekir, Lyon relied on Memphis Depay, author of a doubled (2-0). OL remains in contact with OM.

Aouar showed the way
If there is one man who animated this match of Sunday evening, it is the Lyonnais Houssem Aouar. In line with his big performance at the Vélodrome just before the truce, he was the instigator and the trigger of all good Lyon offensives, especially in the first period. On the confusing action that led to the uncrossed shooting of Ndombélé, it is first he who broke through the middle Toulouse (7th). The young blueberry then strangely missed the frame while it was ideally placed at the far post. Ndombele had handsome the ball on his head, he missed the target three meters goal (14th). One of the few gestures he missed. While he still shivered in the Groupama Stadium on a strike from far (15th), he ended up being decisive by distributing a subtle ball between the legs of a defender for Depay, who crossed his shot well and opened the score (1-0, 23rd). Real metronome of his team, he was, with Ferland Mendy – the other host of the first act with 52 balls played – the one who played the most balloons, the majority in the Toulouse camp. His second half, while under management, was logically less flamboyant but suffered no bad marks. If not this big miss at the very end of meeting a few meters from the cages (90 + 2). Without consequence. Another host of the first act with 52 balls played – the one who played the most balloons, the majority in the Toulouse camp.

On a cloud, Memphis Depay makes Mariano forget
With the new absence of Fekir on injury, coupled with the suspension in attack of Mariano Diaz, Bruno Genesio had to tinker against the TFC by aligning an experimental attack composed of Cornet, Traoré and Depay in point. An unprecedented attack trio, who did the job. And especially the Dutch, who happens to be in great shape during his last outings. His coach was expecting a lot of him by starting for the first time in a month in L1. A choice that paid off, the Lyonnais having been very visible in the first act, where most of the game was played. After opening the scoring (1-0, 23rd), he thought to double the bet but was too short to retake a center fleeing Cornet (28th). It was only part of the delivery, since offered the double shortly before the break by taking charge of a penalty obtained by Ndombélé. His cross shot took Lafont against the foot (2-0, 43). After his victorious head against OM (3-2), and having scored in the selection against Portugal this week, Memphis Depay continues its very good series.
Toulouse never believed
In the maintenance race that will run until the 38th day, moving was not the easiest step for the TFC. Only in a Groupama Stadium where Lyon lost so many points this season, Toulouse has never seemed to be able to compete with his opponent. While they were far from favorites, Debève’s men seemed in fact especially to have moved to Décines not to lose. Quickly asphyxiated in their camp, they suffered the local offensives and had lost match, almost, when returning to the locker room at halftime. Anthony Lopes, captain of one evening, only stopped a dangerous head of Sanogo early in the second half (50th) and was content to divert the other shy attempts. It was already too late for the visitors anyway, too old to hope to bring back a result from Rhône-Alpes. Toulouse remains suspended, a point ahead of Troyes, the barrage. Opposite, the victory of Lyon has not made us forget the European disillusionment, as recalled by the Bad Gones with a banner before the kickoff. But it has the merit of keeping the Lyonnais in the race for the podium. OL are two points behind Marseille, with a better goal difference.
