A rivalry has arisen this season.

Opponents for a place in the Champions League, Monaco and Lyon are blaming each other following the incidents that punctuated the end of the match between the two teams on Sunday.

Won by the wire by OL, this meeting ended with a scuffle involving almost all players in the match, whether players, staffs and security guards.

Held responsible by the Lyonnais ("you have to know how to lose with dignity", for example dropped Anthony Lopes), the Monegasques responded via a press release on Monday evening.

"AS Monaco also deplores the inappropriate and inappropriate statements made by OL representatives after the match, notably evoking the dignity of the club," wrote the current 3rd in Ligue 1.

Work for the disciplinary committee

In addition, "the term" aggression "having been used on several occasions" by OL, ASM wished to recall the injuries of two of its players during the last matches played between the two teams: that of Sofiane Diop in the Coupe de France and that of Caio Henrique, Sunday. 

The duel between Monegasques and Lyonnais, separated by a small point with three games left to play, will continue at a distance next weekend.

In the meantime, the disciplinary committee of the LFP, which will study the images and rule on the cases of the four players expelled by Clément Turpin after the crush (Geubbels, Pellegri, De Sciglio and Marcelo), will have work on Thursday.
