On the 33rd day of Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais suffered a 2-1 loss on the lawns of Brest this Wednesday evening. Peter Bosz’s men are now five games from the end of the season, seven points behind fifth place.
ol fall back in your way. After having fun at the Groupama Stadium last weekend against the Girondins de Bordeaux (6-1, Day 32), Lyonnais lost this Wednesday evening during the 33rd day of Ligue 1 (2-1) on the lawns of Brest. With this defeat, the first in the league since a 4–2 loss at home against Rennes on 13 March, the Rodanians saw Europe move a little further.
With five matches to go, OL are seven points behind fifth place, currently in possession of Monaco after the Rocher club’s victory in the Cote d’Azur derby on Wednesday. Lyonnais also points to a sixth-place finish five lengths, which could potentially offer a ticket to the European Cup if Nice wins the Coupe de France and finishes in the top 5.

Crucified by Cardona two minutes after Dembele’s draw
So the blow against Brest is costly for Peter Bose’s men. After Mouni conceded the opener in the 27th minute, Lyon equalized in the 72nd through Dembele, the author of his 15th goal of the season in Ligue 1. But Leonis gave in again two minutes later, when Cardona restored the advantage to the Breton.
The OL will host Montpellier on Saturday at the Groupama Stadium (5pm) before moving to the velodrome on Sunday 1 May. From now on, Jean-Michel Aulas’ club must believe in a miracle to hope to make an appearance on the European scene next season.
