Football – C3 – OL beat Porto in the round of 16, first leg of the European League

An ambitious and high-profile match author, OL beat FC Porto in the first leg of the Round of 16 of the Europa League (1-0) on Wednesday. Lyonnais is in a strong position before the second leg next Thursday. The match: 1-0 In a difficult season, OL has found comfort on the European stage. Lionel has already signed a high-quality performance to win at Porto in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 (1-0). Ambitious but clumsy for so long in the last move, they were rewarded for their efforts with a goal from Paqueta in the second half. Despite the frantic end of the match, the players of Peter Boss came forward before the second leg in the Rhone.

After a good start from Lyon that ended with Moussa Dembele’s header blocked by Diogo Costa (11), the Portuguese managed to reverse the dynamic. Behind the Vitinha (11) version is the entire Porto block that has settled in the Leon half. Fortunately, Mateus Uribe missed the goal with a hair (13) and Anthony Lopez did the job in two Pepê attempts (21 and 32). After such a long weak period, the OL began their rise to power. On a good cross from Leo Dubois, Karl Toko Ekambi missed a golden opportunity to open the scoring before the end of the first half (38). OL dominated again to start the second half, still struggling in the end. Dembele missed the goal twice in a perfect position (50 and 53) and Costa saved a shot that was handed by Lucas Paqueta (54) very lightly. Five minutes later, the Brazilian finally found the error with a discount from his attacker (59). As is often the case to keep score, Leon had the advantage of folding without breaking. Well helped by the inaccuracy of the Portuguese side (83rd and 85th places). But also by the VAR technology, which canceled a penalty due to a handball by Paqueta (63rd place) and then a heartbreaking goal by Chancel Mbemba (90 + 4).

After being congratulated by Peter Boss on his excellent performance at Lorient last weekend, the midfielder returned to Porto on Wednesday night. All around, the OL trainee put out the Portuguese midfield. His constant harassment of ball carriers has generated countless interesting recoveries for his partners. He could even have taken his chance in a perfect position but he preferred to serve Dembele (50th). Sure, he lost a few balls from fatigue at the end of the match, but Lyon still owed him a lot. Caqueret: “We knew how to be strong defensively and achieve that goal” FACT: Every VAR in the right direction has often been crucial in refereeing this season, OL has reason to be positive on Wednesday night. In the second half, the video assistance was methodically in the direction of Lyon. It was first disallowed for offside, and Paqueta’s goal was confirmed by the VAR. It was also the video that overturned the decision to award a penalty to Porto after the Brazilian’s handball. Then this is necessary to cancel Bememba’s equalizer at the end of extra time.
