“Alexandre Lacazette trained separately, we’ll see on Saturday,” Pierre Sage said this Friday at a press conference. A priori, it’s all seen. According to L’Équipe, the OL captain did not make the trip to Lorient with the rest of his little comrades. Les Gones will challenge Merlus without their top scorer on Saturday, during the 25th day of Ligue 1. “Today, a football team cannot rely on a single player, a single individual. In those moments, when we are able to play together, the team scores. Who scores, we don’t care a bit,” explained the Lyon coach, who already had to do without Lacazette during the 0-3 defeat against Lens. And this due to a thigh injury suffered against Strasbourg.

Two other uncertainties, notably Orel Mangala, “suffering, we will take stock tomorrow (Saturday)”, indicated Pierre Sage. Concerning Nicolas Tagliafico, who “took a little blow yesterday (Thursday), he left the session, but it should be fine,” assures the coach of the 11th in the French championship rankings.
