J-4 before OL–Lille (CDL) : A semifinal with Lorient in 2012
2011-12 : Lorient – OL 2-4 ap
A real Cup match! While Lyon were almost knocked out, behind two goals behind ten minutes from time against Lorient, OL went inside themselves to snatch an unexpected trip to extra time thanks to goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Jimmy Briand. The additional thirty minutes were just toughly fought, but it was Lyon who would go to the Stade de France with goals by Bafétimbi Gomis and "Alex". In the final, they lost to OM in overtime but OL would still manage to lift their first trophy in three years with a French Cup.
