Toulouse substitute striker Latang scored a draw

The 10th round of the 2022-2023 season of Ligue 1 kicked off today with the former seven-time champion Lyon at home against Toulouse, who had been upgraded to Ligue 1 this season. The game ended in a 1-1 draw. Lyon missed the opportunity to win the 5th consecutive victory and cannot escape the decline.

Lyon's fastest start

In the first two minutes of the game, under Lyon's clever pass control and return pass, 22-year-old midfielder Matthaus Martins received the pass before entering the penalty area and shot from a long distance into the right net The opening record is also the fifth goal of the attacking midfielder in 10 Ligue 1 games since he was loaned to Lyon from Shakhtar Donetsk this season.

Originally, the home team could continue to expand their advantage in the first half, but the 3 attacks were blocked by the 29-year-old goalkeeper Maxime Dupe of the visiting team Toulouse . First, in the 12th minute, the home team's 30-year-old striker Carl Toko Ekambi shot into the net from the penalty area and was brilliantly saved by Dupuy, and then in the 23rd minute, the home team's 31-year-old striker and captain Alexandre Lacaze was blocked. A special low ball and the home side could not get any better in the 41st minute when the 28-year-old midfielder Corentin Tolisso's header was blocked out of bounds.

Toulouse equalised in the second half

The two sides fought on offense and defense until the 67th minute of the second half. The home team's defensive efficiency in the penalty area began to weaken due to its focus on the offensive end. The visiting team's 26-year-old striker Rafael Radon took advantage of the home team's defensive omission and easily passed the home team's 32-year-old goalkeeper Anthony Lopez's defense from close range in front of the goal. After that, neither team made any achievements. In the end, Toulouse and Lyon tied the game 1-1.

Lyon's sluggish defense

Lyon started the season with an unbeaten record of 4 wins and 1 draw in the first 5 rounds, but began to decline in the 6th round, losing 4 consecutive rounds to Lorient, Monaco, Paris-Germany and Lens. Lyon originally planned to get rid of the slump and return to the winning track in this home game, but the result was unsatisfactory with a draw with Toulouse to expand their winless record.

In addition, Lyon 's defense level is weak this season, with only 5 shots, while the opponent has 19 shots. Lyon's ball possession rate is not as good as Toulouse, who was promoted to Ligue 1 this season.

The 31-year-old striker Alexandre Lacazette, the Lyon captain, also admitted after the game that he must face up to the problem of the team's unstable defense. He said that Lyon was at a disadvantage whenever Toulouse won the ball and scored goals in this game, which shows that Lyon's performance this season is worrying.
