Lyon once again snatched victory from Lille (3-4) after being behind on Monday during the 32nd day. A specialty which makes OL the team to have taken the most points in Europe after running behind the score this season.

In Lyon, there is no point in panicking. OL won in Lille (3-4) on Monday at the end of another crazy and stunning match after falling behind twice (2-0, then 2-1 in the 85th minute). But, with Pierre Sage, the Lyonnais have made comebacks their trademark this season, as was recently the case in Nantes (1-3, after being down 1-0), against Brest (4-3, after 1 -3), then in Lille (3-4), Monday. Since the appointment of Pierre Sage on the bench in November, OL are the team in Europe which have taken the most points (22) this season after falling behind.

Better than Manchester City and Liverpool

In this ranking, Lyon is ahead of Manchester City (20) and Liverpool (16). The figure even climbs to 24 points over the entire season since Lyon had snatched two draws against Lorient (3-3) and Metz (1-1) while chasing the score. But that was before the arrival of Pierre Sage.

The former director of the club’s training center was appointed on an interim basis to the Rhone bench on November 27 to replace Fabio Grosso, who was dismissed from his position. He was finally supported until the end of the season by John Textor, owner of the club. Under his orders, Lyon, long at the bottom, has climbed back up and is now two points behind Lens, 6th. OL are also qualified for the Coupe de France final against PSG on May 25.

Asked about the reversals of his team’s situations, Pierre Sage assures that there “is no recipe”. “The only thing we said to each other at half-time and that we said again at the end of the match, is that when there is even a trickle of oxygen left, it There is life and when there is life there is hope, so we might as well give it our all. said that perhaps the story would have been too good. But no, we still had the necessary resources.”
