Ligue 1 - After Monaco-Lyon (2-1): Peter Bosz is not worried: "A match like that should give confidence"
What will be the legacy left by Peter Bosz at OL? More than a year after his arrival, Lyon suffered against Monaco a second defeat in a row (2-1), a first under the leadership of the Dutch coach. If the face shown by Les Gones on Sunday was less dull than in Lorient (3-1 defeat), the Rhodaniens once again showed chronic inconstancy. Able to drown under opposing counterattacks, like besieging the Monegasque surface, OL de Bosz did not manage to make a successful copy. So when even the score does not follow, the crisis is never far away.

A major problem, here is how the Lyonnais tried to explain the defeat against ASM on Sunday. “We knew they were dangerous on set pieces, began Alexandre Lacazette at the microphone ofAmazon Prime Video. We knew that was our weak point. In addition, we lack size at this level.” A clear observation shared by the Rhone striker, Karl Toko-Ekambi (81st): “We are disappointed, because we knew they were strong on set pieces, we did not know how to do the jobhe confided. We dominated the game and it failed us at the end, we have a mixed feeling, because we were not focused on dangerous situations.”

We don’t deserve to lose

Wanderings that are expensive, especially when the content is somewhat brilliant, like the start and end of an exciting encounter. “I’ve seen a lot of good things except the three dotsnoted Peter Bosz at the microphone from Amazon Prime Video. It’s different from Lorient (3-1 defeat, Wednesday, editor’s note), where we were bad. Today we played well. We don’t deserve to lose. We had chances, we played well. Even after the second goal, which was tough, we didn’t give up. At least, we must draw on such a match, or even win.”

The positive tone of Bosz is echoed in unison by the Lyon executives. Because despite the defeat, Lyon leaves Louis-II with full confidence. “A match like this must give strength, give confidence for the weeks to come, Bosz hoped after the game. We’ll see how it goes. When we were behind, we took a risk to play one against one behind. I’m not afraid to take risks to win. I don’t care if I lose 1-0 or 3-0. The boys understood that. At the end, I saw Karl (Toko Ekambi) sprint like never before. That’s what I want to see.”

Why would I be under pressure?

The players did not let go. But what about the upper echelons of the Rhone organizational chart? The former Ajax coach is not worried about his future: “Under pressure ? Not at all. Why would I be under pressure? Two defeats in a row, it can happenHowever, OL (5th, 13 points) sees the PSG-OM duo slipping towards the heights of the championship, now with a six-point lead. Precisely, the next deadline for Les Gones, the reception of PSG at Groupama Stadium, could weaken the position of the Dutch coach in the Rhône.

In his perilous mission to bring down the invincible club of the capital (this season), Peter Bosz will arm himself with the intentions glimpsed during a last quarter of an hour of madness, during which OL had at least three clear opportunities to score (87th, 90th, 90th+1). “In the last quarter of an hour, we played simpler, more direct and we had more chancesabounded Toko-Ekambi. We’re not going to throw it all away either. We will rectify the shooting as soon as possible. We, we want to start again, we know our qualities and our faults, we want to play a great match against Paris.” Three losses in a row would probably be one too many for Bosz, and the encouraging content will not always be able to serve as a decoy.
