This Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais did not do better than a draw with the Saint-Etienne red lantern. For Jérôme Boateng, it’s because of the referee.

As often during the derbies between Saint-Etienne and Lyon, there was a spectacle and a commitment. This Sunday in Geoffroy-Guichard, the meeting between the men of Claude Puel and those of Peter Bosz was no exception to the rule.
