Which Lyon supporter did not wonder why Anthony Lopes had offered such an aerial outing on Lucas in the final of the 2014 League Cup against PSG (1-2)? - FRANCK FIFE / AFP
- OL will host the first semi-final of the League Cup on Tuesday (9:10 p.m.) against Losc.
- If the Lyonnais run after a title since the Coupe de France 2012, their supporters struggle to get carried away for this meeting which can allow them to find the Stade de France.
Henri Bedimo, Milan Bisevac, Bakary Koné, Steed Malbranque and even Arnold Mvuemba were all in the last final disputed by OL, while Rayan Cherki played with the club's chicks. That is to say that the last trip of Lyon supporters to the Stade de France dates. Six years after this setback (1-2) against PSG in the final of the League Cup, Houssem Aouar's partners have a great opportunity, Tuesday (9:10 p.m.) against Losc, to finally enjoy the adrenaline of a cleaver match that could lead to a trophy.

Since a Coupe de France in 2012, OL fans, so spoiled in the 2000s with seven consecutive coronations in Ligue 1, have been struggling with patience. Finally, does the prospect of raising the last League Cup in history really delight them? To believe the affluence at Parc OL, which the club management hopes around 35,000 spectators, or 12,000 less than for the half of the Coupe de France against Rennes (2-3) last season, we are not really on THE meeting of the last six years.
"We can't afford to snub this cup"
"I am in a FSGT football team and no one has thought of postponing our match, which falls at the same time as this Lyon-Lille," smiles Vincent (28). Even if there is of course an excitement to finally return to the Stade de France, this fail is undoubtedly revealing. Because like many Lyon supporters, Vincent is divided.
I want to tell myself that it is not dramatic not to go all the way in a cup that will have disappeared next season. But since we don't gain anything, we can't afford to snub it. And if for once, we can congratulate ourselves for something other than a place as the 17th richest club in the world… ”
I felt more pride when we beat Zilina in the intertoto cup in 1997 than when I discovered this classification.
Win your matches, win trophies, that's all we ask of you. https://t.co/D02tigqcQV
Rayan Cherki, "the clearing of the moment"
Because most OL enthusiasts are indifferent to the purchase of a women's football franchise in the United States or to the co-organization of a music festival (the Felyn Stadium Festival). What about the last square of this future ex-“Mustache Cup”? "I'm never going to spit on the prospect of a final," says Hugo, a regular at the north turn. After, it's a shame not to have inherited PSG at home for this half seen as it would be really hard to beat them on a match offering a title at the Stade de France. "
“Maybe Cherki surprised you, but not us!” Says Anthony Lopes https://t.co/zwUkjuf7wV- 20 Minutes (@ 20Minutes) January 19, 2020
"I am sincerely jaded by this team and the repeated purges that we have undergone for several seasons, sighs Jean. I just want to enjoy watching games. At 16 years old, the amazing Rayan Cherki gave a shovel on Saturday with his double and two assists in the knockout stages of the Coupe de France in Nantes (3-4). "This is our clearing of the moment, the one that could bring back the thrill to the supporters," predicts Gary (35). The "Mustache Cup" cannot fight with the "formidable academy".
