In a fully open match, Messins managed to restrain Rudi Garcia’s men. Both teams were very offensive despite the lack of accuracy. The first shot doesn’t arrive until the 36th minute of the game in a strike by Lyon striker Karl Toko Ekambi.
Metz then proved to be very demanding of Lyon’s goal. In the 42nd minute, Boulaya tried to center the end, which ended up in the extreme of Anthony Lopes. The ball then returns to Gueye, who tries a shot, but Marcelo saves Lyonnais on the line.
Players returned from the locker room in the same spirit as the first episode, the ball crossed the field from one goal to another. 20 minutes into the game, Maxwell Cornet had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. Algerian’s international goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja (32, 3 Lippia) folded and guided the ball quickly to the right corner before the corner kick.
Four minutes later, maybe a turning point for Gones. Memphis Depay gives the ball to the heel of Thiago Mendes. The Brazilian shot towards the goal, forcing goalkeeper Metz to make the parade on foot. The ball then hits the payroll before returning to Fabien Centonze’s head, who unfortunately hands the ball to Karl Toko Ekambi, who doesn’t hesitate to find his way into the net. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Stouhanie Frappart got himself booked. The manager of Aouar was not happy.
With 89 minutes, the pressure in Metz increased. Twenty meters away, Pape Sarr sees his shots from the right colliding with Anthony Lopes in the crossbar. The starting score is two minutes later from Aaron Leya Iseka. Toulouse borrowed the striker to get rid of the Portuguese goalkeeper completely and hit right from the right post.
