First team: A win to start a dream week
Olympique Lyonnais did the impossible against Juventus! Thanks to a victory by the smallest of margins (1-0), OL secured a return match that will be full of promise in Italy. And the least we can say is that the Rhone club could not have started their dream week better. Because now that this performance has been achieved, everyone is looking to the future. And what better than a home derby to continue this momentum and at the same time go up the table in Ligue 1 Conforama.
Indeed, Rudi Garcia and his players will welcome ASSE to Groupama Stadium, which will once again be a fiery atmosphere and will serve as a twelfth man in seeking a victory against the club's historic rival. It's a confrontation that the supporters consider one of the most important of the season and which, moreover, will be a matter of revenge following defeat (1-0) in the reverse fixture.
After that, Lyon will barely have time to rest since it will already be necessary to focus on a third big match in a row at Décines as Anthony Lopes and his teammates will receive Paris Saint-Germain in the hope of a qualification for the Coupe de France final. There, too, an air of revenge could ring about the ground as the residents of Groupama Stadium will certainly want, in addition to qualifying, to reply to the affront of their defeat (4-2) at the Parc des Princes a few weeks ago.
Thus, it is therefore a dream week which looms for Lyon, a week during which it will be necessary to answer the call at Groupama Stadium to push the team to win the derby on Sunday and then do the same against PSG next Wednesday.
