It’s statistically proven that right before and after Champions League matches (and often times, during), Lyon forget how to play football. We’re so used to seeing it that when they do play well, we don’t recognize them.
Seriously, whoever played Toulouse last weekend should be reported for stealing Lyon jerseys.
It’s lucky for Strasbourg, who won the Ligue 1 lottery by getting to play Lyon right before their match against Barcelona match. The Alsatians already knocked them out of the Coupe de la Ligue, so taking 3 points won’t seem like a big deal to them.
