The Academy's weekend
U19: OL – Strasburg, Saturday at 16:00 CET
Joël Fréchet and Pierre Chavrondier's side aren't far from the top 3. Thanks to their win over Evian last weekend, after consecutive draws, the OL U19s are just two points off third place and four from leaders Auxerre. On Saturday they entertain Strasburg, 10th on the ladder, with the aim of continuing their climb and prepare for the Youth League match away to Saint-Petersburg on 20 October. This is their last competitive outing before the European clash.
U17: Saint-Etienne – OL, Saturday at 15:00 CET
OL take on their archrivals and group leader AS Saint-Etienne in the U17 category. On Saturday, OL can draw level with ASSE at the top of the table. After a draw to Montferrand and a loss to Evian, Armand Garrido and Laurent Courtois' players bounced back last weekend against Saint-Priest. But they will need to do even more if they want to record a precious away win against Les Verts.
