OL – PSG : Retour sur ce choc en 3 épisodes
One of France's best rivalries, matches between Olympique Lyonnais and Paris Saint-Germain almost always live up to the hype. Since 2010, both the Stade de Gerland and Groupama Stadium have witnessed some amazing clashes between both club.

21/01/18: OL – PSG (2-1)

OL got off to a dream start, taking the lead two minutes in on Nabil Fekir's sumptuous free-kick. While everyone expected a cross into the box, the Lyon captain saw Alfonse Areola off his line and sent a perfect shot to the far post, leaving the Parisian keeper in no man's land. Layvin Kurzawa equalized for the visitors with a great goal of his own: beating Anthony Lopes with an unstoppable volley. All signs were pointing to a draw, but Memphis had other plans. In the last minute of stoppage time, the Dutchman produced a moment of brilliance by creating space way outside the box and smashing a root-footed blast into the upper left corner.




28/02/16 : OL – PSG (2-1)

Lyon were facing PSG for the fifth time that season, with the previous four meetings (Trophée des Champions, Ligue 1, Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France) all going the Parisians' way. OL finally got their revenge, going ahead in the 13th minute on Maxwel Cornet's clinical finish to the far post. The lead was doubled on the brink of halftime when Sergi Darder took full advantage of a Rafael cross, brilliantly evading Thiago Silva before beating Kevin Trapp from close range. PSG would cut the deficit in the second half via Lucas Moura, but Les Gones held on to secure all three points.




25/02/12 : OL – PSG (4-4)

Football matches don't get any crazier - or exciting - as this one. The Parisians opened the score in the 20th minute through Guillaume Hoarau, only for OL to respond in front of their fans with three goals in six minutes. PSG pulled one back before Lyon re-established their two-goal advantage. Unfortunately, the capital club also reacted, scoring twice - including a last-second equalizer from Hoarau - to ensure that both sides shared the spoils in a wildly memorable affair.
