Qualification for the final of the Coupe de France, Olympique Lyonnais registered to win the European qualification of the champion against the impressive Nantes (1-3), in a match marked for an elbow from Alexandre Lacazette .

And here’s a great season for Olympique Lyonnais. After qualifying for the final of the Coupe de France in the battle of Valenciennes (3-0), this place won the European League (the battle of PSG in the final), and the team won again in the evening in the impressive Nantes (1-3), within the confines of the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Lacazette escapes red

The turning point perhaps took place upon returning from the locker room, when Alexandre Lacazette escaped the red card which shattered the arch of Nathan Zézé (52nd). The gesture was involuntary, but the bloody face of the Nantes defender could have led Mr. Brisard to another decision.

And guess who equalized? After the parades of Alban Lafont, this Lacazette who emerged to tackle a clearance from poor Zézé and score (1-1, 75th). And OL hit the nail on the head straight away, with a shot at the near post from Malick Fofana (1-2, 77th), before Gift Orban hit the nail on the head at the end of extra time (1-3, 90th+7) . The first two goals in Ligue 1 for the two winter recruits…
