Overtaken the day before in the standings by Clermont, who won the draw against PSG, Lyon have still not won a game in the league and have only two points, and already five defeats. Lyon will occupy the last place in Ligue 1 at the end of this day.

Two weeks after the appointment of Italian Fabio Grosso on its bench, OL, without Alexandre Lacazette suspended, does not emerge from the crisis born of its poor start to the league.

"I don't know what to tell you... I'm hit. I've been an OL supporter since I was little, I've never seen the club in this position," midfielder Corentin Tolisso said after the match at the microphone of Prime Video.

Conversely with this victory, Stade de Reims climbed to the podium and third place with thirteen points.

Just ahead of Reims, Brest, first after the 6th day, dropped to second place in the standings after a draw in Nice (0-0), which remains unbeaten this season.

Monaco remains leader

The two teams, who could take the lead of L1 in case of victory, neutralized each other during a fairly closed match except for a post for the Brest (8th) and the crossbar for the Nice (19th).

The week of the locals had been marked by concern about the middle Alexis Beka Beka, safe and sound after being taken care of by firefighters and gendarmes Friday while he was in a situation of great distress.

In mid-table, Lille, in 6th place, easily won Sunday in Le Havre (2-0), while Toulouse, 9th, beat Metz (3-0), before the matches Lorient-Montpellier (17:05) and the derby of the West Rennes-Nantes (20:45).

On Saturday night, Monaco provisionally took the lead in Ligue 1, thanks to the goal difference with Brest, after its stunning victory against Olympique de Marseille (3-2) led for the first time by Gennaro Gattuso. And PSG was not reassured before its trip to the Champions League in Newcastle next Wednesday, stalling Saturday at Clermont (0-0) carried by its goalkeeper trained in Paris, Mory Diaw.
