The story is beautiful.
Barely arrived in Lyon, barely entered the game, the Brazilian Tetê offered victory to OL against Angers, Sunday, in Ligue 1. Loaned until the end of the season by the Ukrainian club Shaktior Donetsk with which he is still under contract until 2023, Tetê (22) gave Olympique Lyonnais a decisive advantage with a cross shot from the right following an assist from Malo Gusto, just two minutes after replacing Tanguy Ndombélé (80th, 3-2).
Previously, OL, in a stadium two-thirds empty due to a movement of discontent from the ultra groups, had gotten into trouble despite the two goals scored by Moussa Dembélé who gave his team the advantage twice. .
Angers combative, Lyon unconvincing
But for his part, Angers could have hoped for better than this defeat.
Mathias Lage Pereira found the post at the end of a fine counter-attack (35) and the SCO could have claimed a penalty for a foul by Gusto on Sofiane Boufal without the intervention of video assistance (42).
In the second half, the Angevins equalized for the first time by Lage Pereira who took over a center delivered from the left wing by Souleymane Doumbia on which Jérôme Boateng was overtaken (50).
Angers equalized at 2-2 by Boufal who surprised Emerson and Houssem Aouar, too passive, on receiving a cross from the left (59).
At the end of the game, goalkeeper Anthony Lopes saved his team on a shot from Stéphane Bahoken (82).
Despite this victory, the performance of the Lyonnais, deprived of two of their best players, midfielder Maxence Caqueret, operated on a knee and absent for a month, and striker Karl Toko Ekambi, suffering from Covid, was far from being convincing, both collectively, as well as in terms of desire, commitment and also in terms of physical condition.
