After OL - ASSE: When dreams come true

Après OL - ASSE : Quand les rêves deviennent réalité
After coming on in the 57th minute of the derby, Tino Kadewere took less than 20 minutes to turn the game around and deliver a victory, which had looked far from certain, to his teammates.

Rudi Garcia had decided to trust the "regulars" of the squad to start the 121st derby in history. Moussa Dembélé, hero of the last derby before the end of the season, regained his starting place in attack in place of Kadewere. Frustrated, the French striker was denied two goals for very close offside calls and was taken off in the 57th minute for the Zimbabwean. It was then that the "Tino Show" began -- already in good form over the last few matches, the former Le Havre man was quick to torture the Stéphanois defense, which had been solid until then, with his speed and his movement. However, it was on a set piece phase that he scored his first goal: a well-taken backheeled finish after a very good free kick combination between Memphis and Maxwel Cornet.



But eight minutes later, it was his explosiveness that beat ASSE's defense: he first turned Camara and then held off Moukoudi's challenge before finishing at a tight angle. The story is all the more beautiful because Kadewere had admitted before the match that he dreamed of scoring a brace in this special game. In addition to having these premonitory dreams, OL's number 11 goes down in derby history as he became the first player in the history of this fixtre to score a double after coming off the bench. He joins Jason Denayer and Moussa Dembélé in being both scorers and derby heroes the season of their arrival at the club.
