Two goals from Shaqiri and Emerson and another from Paqueta allowed Lyon to win their third victory in Ligue 1 at the expense of Troyes (3-1), Wednesday at Groupama Stadium after a lively match, and while the Lyonnais were led at half-time.

OL, which also has two defeats and two draws after seven days, thus climbed to 6th place in the standings while Les Troyens are in 17th place.

Arrived at the end of August, the Swiss Shaqiri and the Italo-Brazilian Emerson, European champion with the Nazionale in July, were decisive in the result with their first goal in their new colors.

The first, very present in the offensive animation of the Lyonnais, equalized with a shot which was lodged in the skylight after a corner played from the right wing (48th) while the second gave the advantage to the ‘OL from a shot from the right after a badly returned ball from the head by Giulian Biancone (72nd).

In the last minutes, the Brazilian Lucas Paqueta, once again very active, brought the score to 3-1, being at the conclusion of a counter thanks to a goal validated with the help of video-assistance (88th ).

These three goals reward OL, always in the initiative even if defensively, Peter Bosz’s team could have paid dearly for being caught several times against.

The Dutch coach had also predicted this danger Tuesday at a press conference, estimating that his training had a good chance of being domineering and leaving spaces.

But this victory maintains the good dynamic of Olympique Lyonnais before receiving Lorient, Saturday, to continue in the Europa League, still at home, against the Danes of Brondby, on September 30, then the derby in Saint-Etienne, on the 3 October.

– Constant progress for Lyon –

After beating Nantes (1-0) before the international break, Lyon won against Strasbourg (3-1) but also succeeded in entering the European scene by winning on the ground of Glasgow Rangers (2-0 ) before losing in-extremis in Paris (2-1) after a very encouraging performance.

The match against Troyes confirms the constant progress in the game that Bosz has seen “in every game”.

But the Estac can estimate the severe score.

Les Troyens opened the scoring just before the break with a goal from Xavier Chavalerin, a pure product of the Lyon team who left the Rhone club in 2012, after a cross from Issa Kaboré and a pass from Mama Baldé.

If the Champagne goalkeeper, Gauthier Gallon had to intervene several times in dangerous situations for Lyonnais in the first period, this goal from Troyes was not undeserved.

The Rhone goalkeeper, Anthony Lopes thus interposed twice in front of Baldé (3rd, 20th) and Laurent Battles’ men might have been able to obtain a penalty for a foul by Jason Denayer on Kaboré (38th).

And at the end of the game, the young Sinaly Diomandé also pushed back on the line a shot from Patrick Roberts after a first center from the left repelled by Lopes (85th).
