• On November 21, the OL-OM shock was interrupted in the 5th minute of play, after a bottle was thrown by a Lyon supporter in the face of Dimitri Payet.

  • The disciplinary committee of the LFP had decided the following day on a protective measure behind closed doors for the OL-Reims match, scheduled for Wednesday (9 p.m.).

  • Jean-Michel Aulas and OL leaders will challenge this sanction before the CNOSF on Tuesday, and they explain why in an interview with



Will there finally be Lyon supporters at Parc OL on Wednesday (9 p.m.) for the 16th day of Ligue 1 against Reims?

It is in any case the hope of the Lyon club, which will challenge before the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), this Tuesday afternoon, the protective measure behind closed doors decided by the disciplinary commission of the LFP, in the wake of the bottle throwing on Dimitri Payet during OL-OM.

In an interview published this Tuesday by 


, Jean-Michel Aulas, as well as the director of football Vincent Ponsot and the stadium manager Xavier Pierrot try to clarify why “the serious incident” which took place on November 21 at the Parc OL is “A fundamentally different case from other early season events”.

"We cannot be victims of a general context"

Namely Nice-OM, Lens-Losc, but also Montpellier-OM and OM-PSG, with these encounters invading the ground and / or throwing multiple projectiles, and limited collective sanctions.

These precedents make the Lyonnais fearful of becoming the first to suffer a strong sanction, for their first stint of the season before the disciplinary committee.

"We cannot be judged in the same way, we cannot be victims of a general context", continues the president of the OL, who insists that it is according to him an isolated act "d 'an individual who is not a supporter of Olympique Lyonnais'.

"I am ready to take a reprieve in terms of a number of points"

During his immediate appearance, on November 23, he indicated all the same to go to see matches of the Lyon club "for twenty years". Arrested "seven minutes" after the facts according to the OL, the culprit was therefore sentenced two days later to six months suspended prison sentence and five years of stadium ban. A consequent individual sanction that the Lyon leaders will put forward before the CNOSF to obtain the right to welcome spectators against Reims.

Regarding the fate of this match against OM stopped in the 5th minute of play, which will be the big chunk of the disciplinary committee on December 8, Jean-Michel Aulas would unsurprisingly opt for a suspension of his club: “If we allows me to play the match here against OM, which would be logical, I am ready to accept a reprieve in terms of a number of points and to demonstrate that there will be no such incident.

I don't want to pay for others ”.

We will note in the interview with


 the remark making sense of Xavier Pierrot: "Is a guy who aims badly, it is less serious than a guy who aims well?"


We are curious to know how the LFP will manage this thorny issue in eight days.
