AS Saint-Etienne : The Derby in retro | ASSE News

March 15, 1970 / AS Saint-Étienne 6 – Olympique Lyonnais 0

The Greens are heading for a fourth consecutive coronation. The match is folded, the case heard if we refer to the laudatory comments of the newspaper L’Équipe, evoking a team without rival. At the time of receiving their Lyon neighbor from Di Nallo, Guy and Chiesa, flirting dangerously with the relegation zone and humiliated during a first leg synonymous with snub (1-7), the Stéphanois prance in the lead, not having suffered only one failure in 24 matches, 16 of which were successful! The title in sight, the Ligériens, eliminated from the European Cup by the Poles of the Legia Warsaw not without having previously signed an XXL exploit at the expense of Bayern Munich overthrown in Geoffroy-Guichard, dream of a second double. Called to challenge the rough Nîmes formation, trained by Kader Firoud, over two matches, they even make this double confrontation their priority. They will also have recourse to a support match to bring the Gard Crocodiles to their senses. However, there was no question of overusing a Derby that the Lyonnais approached lessened, with the names of six amateurs lying on the scoresheet. Albert Batteux’s men master the debates without forcing their immense talent like a Hervé Revelli scoring, just like at Gerland, a double for the unfortunate Chauveau. Georges Bereta will follow suit, Salif Keita and Aimé Jacquet will make the addition worse (6-0). Three months later, this legendary ASSE will expand its rich track record with two new trophies, sweeping Nantes in the Cup final (5-0), the largest gap to date ever equaled at this stage of the competition.

February 5, 2017 / AS Saint-Étienne 2 – Olympique Lyonnais 0

After finally defeating the Indian sign in 2015 (see also Green Jersey and the evocation of the goal scored by Bayal Sall, on his birthday), returned to the table in 2016 thanks to an improbable achievement to be credited to the Norwegian Alexander Soderlund, Christophe Galtier’s men are setting the table again, this February 5, 2017. Kévin Monnet-Paquet, one of the undisputed darlings of the Green People who appreciates his generosity, his irreproachable state of mind and his precious versatility, opens the ball. The Swiss army knife, alerted by the ex-Girondin Henri Saivet, is thus the author of a strike from the victorious left slipping between the legs of the Portuguese porter, Lopes. We’ve only been playing for nine minutes. The Foréziens will not be long in achieving the break through Romain Hamouma, ideally alerted in depth by Soderlund. The native of Lure eliminates the last rampart of the Rhône to score in the empty goal. On the return from the locker room, the Lyonnais will be dangerous like Ghezzal and Depay but will come up against Jessy Moulin, there playing his first Derby as a starter, before losing their nerves and ending the match at 9 after two gestures. reprehensible, committed on Fabien Lemoine by Ghezzal and Tolisso.

October 6, 2019 / AS Saint-Étienne 1 – Olympique Lyonnais 0

At the start of this derby, counting for the 9th day of L1, the Stéphanois of Claude Puel, of which it is the first on the bench of ASSE, occupy a little flattering last place. The technician, who had landed in the Forez three days earlier, breathed new life into it, his grinta and offered a coherent and reassuring organization. In the absence of Romain Hamouma, suspended for seeing red in Nîmes (1-0), he also relies on an unprecedented duo of attackers with Charles Abi and Loïs Diony. LoÏc Perrin’s Greens do better than resist the blows of Léo Dubois and his teammates. They also get the biggest opportunity on a strike from Ryad Boudebouz diverted on its amount by Lopes. The debates are balanced and indecisive until the last minute of regulation time. On the right flank, Boudebouz multiplies the dribbles and manages to get rid of Tousart before sending a perfect cross for Robert Beric, ambushed in the back of the Lyon defense. With a head placed, the Slovenian, formidable finisher, offers victory to the Greens and ignites the Cauldron. The Brazilian coach of the visitors, Sylvinho, will not resist this seventh consecutive game without a win and will be landed by the board of OL. Thanks to this second victory in a row and this new clean sheet, the Ligériens extricate themselves from the red zone.
