After OL-ASSE: Historic equality
121 matches, 44 Saint-Etienne victories, 33 draws and now 44 Lyon victories. The win by the Lyonnais on Sunday leveled their balance sheet against the Stéphanois. It was a comeback that took quite a while, as it was not until the arrival of Jean-Michel Aulas as club president that breathed new life into Les Gones. Indeed, 26 of OL’s 44 victories have come during the Aulas era, and Lyon’s 16 years of unbeaten in this fixture between 1994 and 2010 should also be remembered.
In fact, Olympique Lyonnais could even have one more victory than ASSE, however the victory on penalties in the Coupe de France in 2001 cannot unfortunately be considered a success in its own right. See you on January 24, when we can officially overtake Les Verts.
