OL lost at the Nou Camp… Check out the stats that bear testament to the superiority of the Blaugrana… The Lyonnais had been undefeated in 13 group matches…

6 shots for OL: 0 on target, 2 off target and 4 blocked. Juninho 3, Govou 1, Källström 1, Benzema 1.

16 shots for the opposition: 9 on target, including the 3 goals, 3 off target and 4 blocked.

7 free kicks for OL and 16 for the Catalans; 4 corners to 8, 2 off sides to 6.

Rémy Vercoutre made 8 significant and 3 decisive saves. This was OL’s first defeat in 13 Champions League group phase matches. The last one dates back to season 2004-05 against Manchester United (2-1 loss). OL hadn’t lost its first group game of the season since season 2002-03 against Ajax Amsterdam (2-1 loss)… an away match.

Wednesday night was OL’s 67th Champions League match including the 4 times through the preliminary rounds. Losing 3-0? It’s OL’s biggest Champions League defeat ever.
