Sometimes even goalkeepers can’t save their teams, even if they stand on their heads.
Take, for example, what happened to AC Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa on Sunday.
The Mexican international made two fabulous saves after halftime, but still could not stop second-place Lyon from recording a 2-0 win in French Ligue 1.
Ochoa parried Clement Grenier’s lob shot and stopped a point-blank header by Bafetimbi Gomis.
Lyon had taken the lead on center back Dejan Lovren’s header off Clement Grenier’s corner kick in the 25th minute.
Ajaccio tried to equalize, but Argentine Lisandro Lopez put in a a goal off a counterattack in the 75th minute.
