OL travel this Wednesday (7 p.m.) to Lorient, in a late match for the second day of Ligue 1, with an almost full squad since only Jérôme Boateng, in recovery, will be absent. Peter Bosz was very satisfied with this start to the season even though he knows that the opponents to come (Lorient, Monaco and Paris) could offer stronger resistance than at the start of the Championship.
“It confirms a little our preparation, he said. We have seen that we have a good team, which can play well but also with things to improve. But it’s still a start to the season, we see the players getting to know each other better and it will get better and better. Let’s also not forget that we played four times at home. But I have a lot of confidence from what I’ve seen. »
“If we win in Lorient, are we co-leader? Let’s win this game and then we’ll talk about it.”
Lorient, 6th in L1 three points behind OL, will it be a first test for him? “No, we already had five before in addition to our preparation. But it’s the second away game and it wasn’t easy in Reims (1-1), I told you so. Reims is not just anything. Lorient got off to a good start with this victory in Rennes (1-0). But okay, we expect more teams that come at the top of the table than those we have met even if there are always surprises during a season. »
The Dutch coach expects a good resistance in Brittany. “If we win in Lorient, are we co-leader? Let’s win this game and then we’ll talk about it. It is not easy. Lorient, at home, is a bit special. Against Clermont (2-1), they had 40% of the ball, they are very compact with players who go quickly in front. It won’t be easy. »
