2000-01 : Spartak Moscow – OL 1-1 Elimination
Same season, next stage. While head-to-head matches taking precedence over goal difference, Lyon were eliminated after a draw at Spartak. On level points with Arsenal but with a negative balance in terms of their head-to-head results, OL left the event just before the quarterfinals.
2002-03 : Rosenborg – OL 1-1 Elimination
Two years later, the scenario was repeated: in drawing against Rosenborg (1-1), OL regretted its two defeats against Ajax Amsterdam, which qualified the Dutch team, despite the two being closely matched to the standings.

The following season, OL experienced one of its finest European nights by beating Celtic Glasgow at the Gerland, and qualifying for the first time in their history to the Round of 16. It was a historic performance that would anticipate several others to come.
2007-08 : Glasgow Rangers – OL 0-3 Qualification
Another resounding result against a rival from Glasgow in December 2007. Against the Rangers and on the other side of the Channel, OL again punched their ticket for the Round of 16 after a memorable evening.
2011-12 : Dinamo Zagreb – OL 1-7 Qualification
OL had to beat Dinamo but also make up seven goals on Ajax, while counting on a victory from Real Madrid ... The task seemed almost impossible but was accomplished thanks to a heavy win, its biggest ever in Europe (1-7).
2017-18 : OL – FC Séville 0-0 Elimination
The charged atmosphere at the Groupama Stadium and a scoreless draw against Sevilla FC were not enough. Qualification for the rest of the competition went missing despite some good performances against Juventus.
