There has been two very distinct phases in the league, first of all a run of a team facing relegation...then a champions effort...Here is a look back over the 19 matches...
RUN OF RESULTS
5 points from the first 7 matches and then 26 points from the 12 that followed. OL are unbeaten since their defeat at home to Saint-Etienne. With a total of 31 points at the break, or the 2nd worst total for the club since the L1 returned to 20 teams in 2002-2003. The worst was 30 in 2009-2010.
11 points dropped at home (13 last season at the same period).
24 players have been used by Claude Puel. The Lyon manager has put together 19 different starting line-ups. Lloris is the only OL player to have played every minute of all 19 matches. Gomis has taken part in all matches. If Lloris has the highest number of minutes out on the pitch with 1 710, the youngster Novillo has the lowest playing time with only 8 minutes during the first match of the season against Monaco.
OL have taken the lead on 11 occasions (7 victories and 4 draws). On 7 occasions, OL have been behind (1 victory, 2 draws and 4 defeats). 1 0-0 score line.

THE GOALS CONCEDED

BREAKDOWN OF GOALS PER 15 MINUTES
