OL players went to the stands to celebrate their victory against Lorient (4-1) with their supporters gathered outside Groupama Stadium this Saturday.
Six days after the great victory against Monaco (3-2), OL had a second consecutive success this Saturday at home against Lorient (4-1). Despite the closed session imposed due to the health situation, the Rhone supporters gave their voice from outside the stadium. After the match against Les Merlus, Houssem Aouar’s partners went to celebrate with the fans who came to support them.
“We will go see them to thank them. Lately they came to see us despite the restrictions, commented Houssem Aouar at the microphone of Canal +. We want to thank them for everything they do for us.”
Lyon celebrates its podium
Images that are a pleasure to see, even if the social distancing and the wearing of the mask left something to be desired among the supporters of the Gones. From the top of the stands, the OL players came to thank them. A scene of jubilation equal to the importance of the success achieved this Saturday against Lorient.
By winning thanks to goals from Houssem Aouar, Lucas Paqueta and a brace from Bruno Guimaraes, Lyon grabbed third place in the Ligue 1 standings. In the event of a poor performance by Moanco this Sunday, the team coached by Rudi Garcia could even be mistress of its destiny before the last two days of the championship.
The return of the public to the stadiums, hoped for on May 19, could give rise to new beautiful moments between Lyon players and supporters on the occasion of the last match of the season, on May 23 against Nice. Until then, Memphis Depay’s partners will do anything to stay in the running for the Champions League.
