A defeat on opening day against Strasbourg was not what the Lyon fans expected from their team. After a goalless first half, Jean-Ricner Bellegarde gave Strasbourg the lead in the 63rd and in the 75th minute, Lebo Mothiba doubled their lead. Lyon were able to get one goal back in the 88th minute through Nicolas Tagliafico but the game ended that way and Lyon were defeated. According to the statistics, Lyon had 64% possession, 7 shots on target and 6 corner kicks. They also missed 2 of 3 chances created in that game. Corentin Tolisso will have big shoes to fill if Lyon are to get back to winning ways. He failed to score in the opening game against Strasbourg, but his attacking statistics is something Lyon will desperately need at the moment. He averages 5.0 shots per game and 2.0 shots on target per game. However he is yet to register a goal in the new season.

The defeat on opening day now meant Lyon had lost their last 5 games in a row. They lost their last 4 preseason games in a row before the opening day.

Streaks: losses (5), without a clean sheet (7), less than 2.5 goals (4/5), first to concede (7/7), less than 4.5 cards (9/9), less than 10.5 corners (4/5).

Montepellier were only able to pick up a point from the opening day game against Le Havre at home. The newly promoted side were ahead in just 5 minutes into the first half through Gautier Lloris. And in the second half, Montpellier did their best to turn things around with 2 quick goals in the 58th and 60th minute from Akor Adams. The game looked all set to go the way of Montpellier, but they were rocked by a late equalizer from Samuel Grandsir in the 90th minute to end the game as a draw. Montpellier were better according to statistics despite the result. They had 58% possession, 5 shots on target and 4 corner kicks in the game. Akor Adams picked up the man of the match award for scoring 2 goals in just 77 minutes played.
