For its match in Strasbourg, Lyon will have to do without Bruno Guimaraes, suspended. Rudi Garcia and OL are stunned by this unjustifiable sanction according to them.
Olympique Lyonnais will try to get off on the right foot Sunday at La Meinau, the club of Jean-Michel Aulas needing points to climb to the podium in Ligue 1. But for this trip to Alsace, the coach of OL will have to do without Bruno Guimaraes. The Brazilian player is in fact suspended against Strasbourg, and on the side of theOlympique Lyonnais the amazement is great following this decision of the disciplinary commission of the Professional Football League. Because if Bruno Guimaraes is sanctioned it is following a series of three yellow cards in ten games, one of which is the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, lost by Lyon to PSG last July. A meeting which therefore dates from last season.
« We finished the 2019-20 season and Bruno received his yellow card against PSG on July 31. And Bruno Guimaraes finds himself suspended Sunday for a yellow card taken last season. I do not understand the common sense of the decision. I don’t find it logical », Notes Rudi Garcia, who knows that usually when a season ends the card count is reset to zero. Obviously this was not the case concerning the midfielder of Olympique Lyonnais and the side of the Rhone club it is difficult to understand the logic of this suspension which deprives OL of an important player, especially in the context of covid, which is already having a significant impact on Lyon.
