L’Olympique Lyonnais could have her bad after her match against PSG. Authors of an exciting performance, Sunday, on the lawn of the Parc des Princes, the Gones did not leave Paris empty-handed.

If OL were angry at the end of the match, it is much more because of the penalty whistled against Bad taste just a few minutes after the opening of the scoring Lucas Paqueta. If the young defender does indeed drop Neymar in a duel in the area, the first fault seems much more attributable to the Brazilian, who indeed puts his arm on the back of the Pole, preventing him from getting up. “The penalty is an aberration. The VAR should have intervened. The decision is not normal ”, did not hesitate to launch Jean-Michel Aulas at the end of the meeting.
I have trouble digesting the penalty
And the Lyon president was not the only one to be angry. The same was true of Peter Bosz, who also pointed out the inaction of the VAR. “For the penalty, I watched the video right after the match and there was no fault from Malo Gusto at all. He can’t do anything. There is a fault by Neymar, it is not a 100% penalty. I can understand that the referee does not see this. But it is not possible not to return to this error while there is VAR. This is annoying « , he thus entrusted the Dutch technician in remarks relayed by the site of the club. Present at the microphone of Prime Video a little earlier, the Dutch technician had not been kind to the VAR attendants. “I think they are not footballers. For me, it’s clear ”, he then let go.
First concerned, Malo Gusto, at the top of his 18 years, obviously had just as badly lived the episode. « I have trouble digesting the penalty. It’s a shame because we had a good game. We are disappointed. It is first Neymar who makes the fault on me », he said, adding nonetheless: « You have to know how to accept it. »
