PSG-OL: This Time, Yoann Gourcuff Will Not Miss It

Accustomed to miss the impact since his arrival at Lyon, Yoann Gourcuff should hold face PSG Sunday evening at the Parc des Princes (2100). And for once, all lights are green for him.

With two goals and four since the beginning of season passes, was already almost want to write that Yoann Gourcuff successful pursuit. Finally, say that it is on course to beat his “record” Lyon, four goals and five assists, made during his first year between the Rhone and Saone in 2010-2011.


Its 2011-2012 season (two goals, two assists) and 2012-2013 (four goals, four assists) were even more soporific than playmaker was more accustomed to attend infirmary statistics columns. Olympique Lyonnais had regularly had to dispense with his services, especially against the big boys in the championship, Gourcuff played with for example four of the eight meetings against Paris Lyon since his arrival.

It Is Unclear How He Might Prefer Attic Guard

But this Sunday, the number 8 is alive and well. And certainly holds. The small form of Clement Grenier helping the former Bordeaux is likely to start at the Parc des Princes. Decisive passer for Gomis Thursday before the Betis (1-0) five minutes after entering the game, he also initiated action against Lyon goal Valenciennes (1-1) and was the author of the decisive center Briand when winning the OL in the derby Saint-Etienne (1-2).


In short, it is unclear how Remi Garde could happen to an equally decisive element, even if the coach has not been positively gushing about her: “Yes, he has been decisive is very positive for the away. ” To find more playful words, it was enough to hear the recipient’s last offering, Bafetimbi Gomis : “It is in a very good mood all you he is a great player and a great teammate know when it is. full health. has been very generous with me by giving me this goal almost done. ”

Vercoutre: “We All Know It Can Succeed Fantastic Things Know”

Same enthusiasm and similar reflection in the mouth of one of the frames of the team, Remy Vercoutre : “When he has his full physical abilities, he can succeed on all the fantastic things known.” Like the goal great – a lob from midfield, he was denied against Betis due to an offside position Gomis. Although it is unclear whether this gesture Gourcuff had tried before or after the whistle of the referee, this bold move proves that the midfielder is trying to find all his sensations.


A consequence of the new pattern of play OL? If Remi Garde conceded there is little wait, “he feels comfortable in a position he has occupied Bordeaux , “it would be wrong to assume that the 4-4-2 diamond was enough to resurrect Gourcuff. Early in the season, he had already shone while he was positioned at the left of a 4-2-3-1, before injuring his left thigh at the end of August. Nine weeks later, despite doubts, the player is returned to the same provisions. As to imagine that the shock of Sunday to PSG is timely for him, just to remember the good memories of a team of France with whom he has played since June.
