It all happens in the first half with the two teams that have found the way to the goal. Lens decided to break the deadlock but the advantage did not last long as the situation of equality was re-established before the interval. In the second 45 minutes of the game no other goals arrived with both teams who preferred to close each space. Also from this point of view we can read the changes made. The imperative was to try but avoid going out with a defeat that would have complicated the ranking situation a lot.
Lens managed to take the lead in the 13th minute thanks to a goal from Jonathan Clauss, Olympique Lyon found the strength and clarity to replicate by equalizing the match before the end of the first half with Kadewere. In the second half there were other potentially dangerous actions but either because of a less than perfect shooting accuracy, or because of the fear of discovering too much in defense, the result did not change.
Both goalkeepers had to surrender only on the occasion of the goal: 5 saves for Anthony Lopes (Olympique Lyon), while Wuilker Fariñez (Lens) had to make 1 intervention.
Despite the final result of a tie, Lens prevailed in terms of number of shots (12-10). Olympique Lyon, on the other hand, dominated possession (62%).
The guests successfully completed more passes than the opponent (515-279): Thiago Mendes (69), Emerson (68) and Castello Lukeba (68) stood out. For the hosts, Medina was the most accurate player with 48 successful passes.
Seko Fofana despite not scoring was the player with the most attempts for Lens: 3 times, 1 of which in goal. For Olympique Lyon it was Karl Toko Ekambi who tried harder by shooting 3 times, including 1 on target.
In Lens, defender Facundo Medina was the best of his opponents in tackles won (8 out of 13 total) and contributed to the dominance of his team in the overall figure (100%). For the same statistic, in the ranks of Olympique Lyon, midfielder Tanguy Ndombele stood out with 7 tackles won.
