Lyon: Domenech predicts the end of the course in the Europa League

Olympique Lyonnais will meet West Ham this Thursday (9 p.m.) in the quarterfinals of the first leg of the Europa League. After the draw in the first leg (1-1), Raymond Domenech is very pessimistic about the Lyonnais and their end of the season.

Lyon: Domenech

Domenech is pessimistic about the end of the Lyon season

Next Thursday (9pm), Olympique Lyonnais will play its European future. In the short term there is a place to win the semi-finals of the Europa League. But the Rhône club is also looking further afield.

Because seven days after finishing 10th in Ligue 1, Lyon almost said goodbye to the qualification for the European Cup thanks to the championship. And a crown in C3 would enable him to compete in European competition next season.

Domenech does not see Lyon win at home

For Raymond Domenech, the Europa League is Lyon’s last hope of being European next season. But the former coach of the French team does not really believe in it after the draw against West Ham in the first leg (1-1). It’s the latter option and I’m more than pessimistic about their ability to qualify against West Ham, although they’ve been pretty solid so far. Given what happened in the first leg I’m not sure if they can win at home where they are the worst performers estimated the technician for Ouest-France.

Despite a numerical advantage in the second period, the Gones failed to beat the London formation in the first leg. Will Peter Bosz’s players be more effective in a Groupama Stadium that has won their case? Domenech is mainly concerned about the defense. Their permanent defensive fragility and lack of athletic impact worries me. For a European Cup match, OL seems fragile to me at the moment he judges. Before adding: Lyon must finally have effective offensives and above all regain calm and solidity in the defense

R. Domenech – one minute we are overtaken by his level

Former player (1970-1977) and coach (1988-1993) of Lyon, Domenech is generally behind the Gones. But this time, the ex-coach of Nantes is quite desperate: We have the right to dream, but for a moment we are overtaken by our level and what we produce. At the moment I notice that they don’t produce much. (…) This season things are going a bit wrong. They have a fragile defense, static midfielders with the ball and clumsy attackers who don’t weigh on the defense of the opposing team.

The Lyonnais will try tonight to make Domenech lie to give himself new European sensations and hope for a possible end of the season in a cannonball. I’m Lyonnais, I’d like to believe it, but I see the matches and I’m clear. I don’t see why this team, which has been on the same base since September, would suddenly become very collective, solid and generous. , the 70-year-old man launched, fatalistically. Let’s hope for OL that the fans expected at the Groupama Stadium will show more enthusiasm to support their protégés, who are without goalkeeper Anthony Lopes or attacking midfielder Lucas Paqueta.
