LEAGUE OF THE CHAMPIONS (GROUP F): LYON CONCREZES A FRESHING NULL AGAINST MANCHESTER CITY AND WILL QUALIFY IN UKRAINE
Despite a good collective performance, OL conceded a poorly paid draw against Manchester City Tuesday (2-2).
A result that is all the more frustrating as Shakhtar Donetsk snatched the win at Hoffenheim (2-3) and the Gones will have to win in Ukraine on the last day to qualify for the Round of 16.
The 23-year-old Jason Denayer has long belonged to Manchester City before joining Olympique Lyonnais last summer.
However, he never really had the opportunity to play because he has chained loans (Celtic, Galatasaray, Sunderland). This has created a slight frustration, as he explained in a press conference, the day before receiving his former team at Groupama Stadium.
