Lyon, who paid back ‘port-trick’ with ‘port-trick’, won a dramatic come-from-behind victory with a goal in the 10th minute of extra time in the second half
Olympique Lyonnais won a dramatic victory after a relentless pursuit.
On the 8th (Korean time), Olympique Lyonnais, who played the 34th round of the 2022-2023 French Ligue 1 at the Groupama Stadium in Descincharpieux, France, defeated Montpellier 5-4.
Lyon took the lead with captain Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the 31st minute of the first half, but then allowed 4 goals in a row. Montpellier striker Ellie Wahi scored four goals alone. Wahi scored an equalizer in the 40th minute after colleague Joris Shotar cut off the ball under pressure, and added a goal a minute later. In the second half, he scored two goals at short intervals. In the 8th minute of the second half, he shook the net as the kicker of the penalty kick he earned himself. Then, in the 10th minute of the second half, Shotar’s roving through pass카지노사이트, delivered from the rear, beat the goalkeeper and scored.
It was a day that will remain in the history of Montpellier. So far, no player has scored four goals in Ligue 1 wearing a Montpellier uniform. After scoring his fourth goal, Wahi left his name in the club’s history as he lifted his jersey to reveal his name.
However, Lyon did not let Wahi enjoy the joy of victory. The counterattack began in the 14th minute of the second half. Bradley Barcola and Lacazette, who jointly scored the opening goal, teamed up once again. Lacazette pushed Barcola’s cross through the left side of the penalty box into the net. In the 25th minute of the second half, in an attack following a corner kick, center back Dejan Lovren shook the net.
In the 37th minute of the second half, Lyon succeeded in turning the game around. Again, the performance of the combination of Barcola and Lacazette shone. Lacazette completed Barcola’s cutback pass. And in the second half extra time, the game was eventually overturned. Lacazette fell while competing with opposing defender Christopher Julien in the penalty box. The referee checked the video directly through ‘on-field review’ and declared a penalty kick. Lacazette stepped up as a kicker and scored his fourth goal and the game-winning goal of the day. The goal was scored in the 10th minute of extra time in the second half.
It is the first time in an individual professional career that Lacazette, a veteran striker who played for Lyon and Arsenal, scored four goals. As a Lyon player, this is the first record in 48 years since Bernard Lacombe, who also coached Lyon, scored four goals against Bastia in January 1975 when he played as a player.
7th place Lyon, who struggled to win 3 points, narrowed the gap with the European competition. With 4 games left, it has 56 points, 3 points away from 5th place Lille (59 points), which was defeated in the 34th round, and is tied with 6th place Stadren (56 points).
