Tagliafico, Caqueret, Lopes… First quarter recommendation

With the beginning of the World Cup, OL are taking a break for a month after solely 15 Ligue 1 days. A interval that was not simple between Rhône and Saône. Discover the tops and flops of the editorial employees of Olympique-et-Lyonnais.


Congratulations of the jury


Nicholas Tagliafico

It is virtually unanimous, Nicolas Tagliafico is the nice choose of the Lyon switch window this summer time. If the Lyon administration could be singled out on sure factors, the arrival of the Argentinian was an actual success when taking inventory of the truce. The prejudices of some when he arrived have been rapidly swept apart within the face of Tagliafico’s want from his first steps with OL. He definitely price two penalties however apart from that, his bodily baggage and his Argentinian grinta made him an indispensable factor in simply 15 video games with solely twenty minutes missed. Much more liberated beneath Laurent Whitethe previous of theAjax is sort of a fish in water between Rhône and Saône. Between Emerson and the Argentinian, it is virtually day and evening. Logically chosen for the World Cup with the Albiceleste, the left facet shall be a Lyon consultant of alternative.

Johann Lepenant

Lastly, summer time recruitment shouldn’t be such an enormous failure when it comes to arrivals, fairly the opposite. We could have the chance to return to the case Tolisso however it’s clear that the bets tried are reasonably conclusive. And the one in every of Lepenant is sort of stunning. At solely 19, he can nonetheless be improved on sure factors, however for a participant who had solely performed in Ligue 2, the transfer to the subsequent degree was comparatively simple. Inside the membership, we’re filled with reward for the previous Caennais who took benefit of bodily malforms through the summer time to discover a place within the solar. Having put him on the bench when he arrived, Laurent White rapidly reviewed his copy on this younger setting which “has the power to defend whereas advancing”.

anthony lopes

The seasons cross and Anthony lopes remains to be there. The start of the train nevertheless started within the worst doable manner for the Lyon goalkeeper with a pink card from the thirtieth minute of the primary match. Three video games on the ground and a profitable interim of Riou didn’t alter the boldness of the Portuguese. It could be criticized on sure factors, there may be nonetheless a sure assure on this OL which has been pitching for years. Writer of massive matches whether or not towards the PSGat Montpellier or towards LilleAnthony Lopes stays a protected wager on which OL could rely an excessive amount of.


Encouragement :


Alexandre Lacazette

Seeing him on this class reasonably than the one above could seem harsh for a participant who has already scored 9 objectives in 15 video games. However, its sluggish begin to the season, definitely not helped by the system in place, slowed down this long-awaited begin. Chief by phrase and by statistics, Lacazette remains to be wanting just a little on this return to Lyon, however the arrival of Laurent White clearly did him good. He isn’t but 100% bodily and it reveals technically with failed controls in good positions. Nonetheless, the very best appears to come back for the Lyon captain who will be capable of make the most of the extra superior winter preparation to be on prime. OL will want it within the second half of the season.

Castello Lukeba

He knew he was anticipated as he had entrusted it to Olympic-and-Lyonnais through the summer time preparation and he was not dissatisfied. Revelation final season, Castello Lukeba needed to verify. Like Lacazette, his begin to the season was clearly on the within with a couple of particular person errors within the raises. These missteps acted as an electrical shock and put him again heading in the right direction. Taulier of the central protection, the worldwide hope resumed his progress with the arrival of the PSG and has been on an upward slope ever since. Having Laurent Blanc, a former central defender, as a coach can solely do him good and assist him. To be confirmed in January.


should get well


Maxence Caqueret

Maybe the most important disappointment of this primary a part of the season. Prolonged through the summer time, Caqueret was to embody the way forward for OL. That is nonetheless the case however the milestone anticipated this season with an enormous contract is at the moment not there. He has six months left to reverse the pattern however the midfielder appears to have paid for his two accidents on the finish of final season and through the summer time preparation. Bodily glitches which have slowed him down and for which he gives the look of paying the value once more. Missing in confidence, he nonetheless has this dejection that can most definitely by no means go away him, however it’s on the technical degree that the battle hurts… The hopes are so excessive that the frustration is simply as proportional.

Karl Toko Ekambi / Head

Statistically, with 9 objectives and 4 assists, it is exhausting to say something about Lyon’s prime scorers behind Lacazette. However it’s within the proposed sport that criticism is feasible. The final match towards Good has additionally been the instance of what has been seen because the begin of the season. OL have all of the difficulties on the earth to be offensive and the 2 wingers aren’t any strangers to it due to two stereotypical video games. The French defenders are starting to know them and by dint of all the time doing the identical factor, they’re now too predictable. It isn’t for nothing that within the transition to 3-5-2 and even 4-4-2, Toko Ekambi and Tetê have been the primary two Bosz-era fuses to blow.

The return of Tolisso

The commentary is tough as a result of the appearances of Tolisso confirmed every part the midfielder might convey to this OL in midfield. On this function of sentinel, the lengthy sport of the French worldwide has no equal within the Lyon workforce and his management won’t be an excessive amount of. Solely, the fears about his physique on his arrival have been confirmed throughout these first months regardless of his good will. Earlier than lacking the final 4 video games, he needed to skip just one sport. However his 54 minutes on common have been already inadequate for a participant who should be a taulier. The expectation is excessive and as much as what it will probably convey. Greater than a warning not like the gamers talked about earlier than him, it’s a hope to see Tolisso return to his degree with this new preparation.
