Olympique Lyonnais – Clermont
Enjoy your football trip in Lyon on the occasion of the Olympique Lyonnais – Clermont fixture!
A really nice opposition on the program. It will be the closest you will get to experiencing a derby this season with OL. The weight of history is of course minor than with Saint-Etienne, but Clermont made a success of their first year in the elite last season. They will most likely want to settle there for long. We are witnessing the very first hours of a new rivalry and a new chapter of the french football history.
On paper, advantage is clearly given to the Olympique Lyonnais. But, like they say in the Rhône region, ” You don’t play a derby, you win it!”. And Clermont will not come without a purpose.
