It was heated between the benches, Conceiçao denounces insults on the part of Lyon
The end of the round of the 16th leg of the Europa League between Olympique Lyonnais and FC Porto (1-1) was marked by some skirmishes between the bars of the two teams. Portuguese coach Sergio Conceiçao even cited insults on Lyon’s side.
“I saw someone from the Lyon technical staff speak Portuguese and insult the players and the staff of Porto,” said the former FC Nantes coach, taken over by the Portuguese media. According to him, it could be the goalkeeper coach (Rémy Vercoutre). Sergio Concieiçao added that he did not remember as he then left to join the dressing room.

Tanguy Ndombélé gradually regains an exceptional level and performs a roulette wheel that allows the action to continue! He gives it to Paqueta, who tries to give it back to him, but it’s stopped!
PEPE WAS NOT FAR FROM A GREAT TARGET!
Dangerous free kick for Porto and Fabio Vieira! He puts it in the box, but it is returned by Thiago Mendes. Pepe tries a volley and is narrowly distracted by Caqueret! What a gesture!
Thiago Mendes is solid
Not at his post, Thiago Mendes does the job as a central hinge, pushing the Portuguese forwards back with each of his interventions!

30 minutes left to play

First transfer to Porto
Forced departure from Costa who hurt his leg! He will be replaced by Joao Mario shortly.
Caqueret makes his law
The boss of the Lyon area is actually Maxence Caqueret who recovers a maximum of balls and raises perfectly!
Paqueta tries the impossible
Diego Costa goes a little too far from his goal and clears the ball badly! It comes back to Paqueta trying a horizontal volley but it’s above it!
It’s intermission at the Groupama Stadium! Lyon and Porto leave 1-1, but this draw is enough for OL to slip into the quarters. Well launched by an early goal from DEmbélé, the Gones were joined by a light attack from Pepê under the bar! Lyon is in!
