A 6 and 9 with your fingers. Well almost. If not all have mastered the sign perfectly, the Lyonnais displayed their department number after their demonstration in Saint-Etienne, this Sunday, during the 21st day of Ligue 1 (0-5). Grouped in the middle of the lawn by Geoffroy-Guichard, the Gones posed all smiles with their more or less successful “69”.
A photo relayed in particular by Maxence Caqueret. It must be said that this “manita” in the lair of the great rival is historic. It allows OL to gain the upper hand over ASSE in the results of their confrontations (45 wins against 44, 33 draws). What the club’s Twitter account did not fail to highlight. “We are ahead in terms of victories so I am proud and honored to be able to bring that to the club and to the president (Jean-Michel Aulas),” said Léo Dubois on Téléfoot.
“How good it is,” Aulas relishes
Absent due to injury, Houssem Aouar also reacted. “69>”, posted the 22-year-old midfielder, a native of Lyon, as if to display the superiority of his own. A message to which Alexandre Lacazette, also born and trained in the capital of the Gauls, responded with a lodger “Logic”. Former OL captain Maxime Gonalons also greeted this 5-0. Just like Memphis Depay, Thiago Mendes, Rayan Cherki, ex-striker Aldo Kalulu or Sinaly Diomandé. “Manitaaaaaa! Proud of the team tonight. They are your supporters. Thank you for the support for months away from the stadiums,” wrote the young Gones defender. Sidney Govou clearly relayed a montage with Stéphane Ruffier in the middle of a Lyon parking lot.
Jean-Michel Aulas did not miss the opportunity to celebrate this evening like no other. “How good it is to win this 122nd derby, which allows us to take the lead with 45 victories. The first time since 1957. Bravo to Juni, Rudi, Memphis and Karl. The OL institution is at the top and bravo to our supporters who gave their all this morning. “
A satisfaction shared by Rudi Garcia. “Since 1957, this is the first time that Olympique Lyonnais has passed in terms of derby statistics, recalled the Lyon coach. It was something important. I told them (before the match, editor’s note) , so that this team can make history “.
