Rémy Vercoutre, de 32 anos, tem sido o o habitual guarda-redes titular do Olympique Lyon, desde a saída de Hugo Lloris para o Tottenham e, a avaliar pelo que o número 1 do clube francês fez ontem, muitas saudades o titular da selecção deve ter deixado no Estádio Gerland. Na condição de líder do campeonato francês, o Lyon recebeu o "lanterna vermelha" Nancy e para desatar o nó do 0-0 que teimava em persistir, o experiente guardião lembrou-se de animar o jogo e oferecer um golo ao adversário, mas melhor que quaisquer palavras é verem o lance (minuto 1,12 do vídeo).

How do you go from complete underdog to the top of L1 in the space of 2 matchdays, without your two most prolific strikers? Ask Lyon.

To what extend this reality is a miracle, and how long will it last, is largely open; but for the time being, the good form and collective work of Lacazette, Benzia, the 3G (Grenier Gourcuff Gonalons) and Anthony Lopes is largely responsible for these results, along with the interesting additions of Miguel Lopes and Henri Bedimo on the sides.
