OL, Arsenal to meet again in Emirates Cup
Arsenal-Lyon matches are becoming are becoming something of a preseason fixture, as Les Gones have been invited for a third time to participate in the Emirates Cup. Created in 2007, this summer tournament welcomes some of Europe's top clubs to Emirates Stadium, home of the Gunners.
During their first visit to the Islington Borough of London, in 2010, OL went undefeated with a pair of draws against Celtic (2-2) and AC Milan (1-1). Things didn't go so well five years later, after suffering defeats against the home side and Villarreal, as well as losing Clément Grenier to injury.
This summer's return to the Emirates Cup will be under new head coach Sylvinho, a former Arsenal player who has the mission of leading his squad past the likes of Ozil, Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan... and a certain Olympique Lyonnais legend by the name of Alexandre Lacazette.
