A few weeks after the derby OL – ASSE, who saw the Lyonnais win (2-1) against the Stéphanois, the Greens still have not managed to raise their heads. Their performance at Groupama Stadium was encouraging, but it was swept away by the heavy setback suffered on the lawn of the Brest stadium (1-4). The derby was difficult to digest for the supporters of the Greens, who saw red on Friday.
ASSE – OL, endless duel
On November 8, just before the break, ASSE hoped to take advantage of the derby against OL to get his head out of the water after five consecutive losses. Three weeks later, the Stéphanois are seven in a row and slipped to 16th place in Ligue 1, just two lengths behind the play-off, FC Lorient.

Claude Puel’s players have achieved one of their best performances since their three wins at the start of the championship and should have been rewarded with a draw point. Unfortunately for them, Denis Bouanga missed his penalty in stoppage time, seeing his shot flee the frame. Léo Dubois and the Lyonnais did not miss this opportunity to chamber their rivals.

A jersey for OL!
What if the unthinkable had happened? And if OL had decided to wear a new green tunic in Ligue 1? Is it a tribute to the vaguely greenish outfit worn by OL in 1974-1975? How can the great rival capture the color of theASSE ? How can he dare to wear it? However, a press release did state the release of a green jersey at the Olympique Lyonnais. An … ecological jersey! It is actually a training jersey “in 100% recycled material”, a collaboration between “OL, Veolia and Coureur du Dimanche, a start-up from Lyon”, writes The team. “It is produced entirely in Rhône-Alpes, in a short circuit”, from the recycling of “12 plastic bottles”. And that ASSE supporters rest assured, this jersey is … blue.
