After previous busy days, OL returned to the Groupama Stadium on Thursday (6:45 pm) for the final day of the Europa League group stage. Already qualified and confident of the first place, Peter Bose’s team will host Glasgow Rangers.
A day after the decision of the LFP disciplinary committee, which imposed a hefty fine on Lyon following the incidents against Om, Ol returned to the field on Thursday evening. Already assured of a first-place finish in their group in the Europa League, and therefore having qualified for the knockout stages, Jean-Michel Aulas’ club receives Glasgow Rangers on Thursday.
Scottish supporters banned from traveling
Lyon supporters will return to the Groupama Stadium this Thursday for the occasion. The meeting will be from this Thursday 18h45 and will be transmitted over unencrypted rmc story and on RMC Sport 2. A ministerial decree nonetheless banned the movement of Scottish supporters for this poster among the group’s first two.
However, more than 2,200 Scottish supporters were expected to arrive in Lyon for the meeting. This decision is justified because these fans are “often a source of disturbances in public order”, as indicated by the ministerial decree. At the same time, the festival of lights will also take place in the “capital of the Gauls”, which will already mobilize several police forces.
From a sporting point of view, Peter Bos has already indicated that Lucas Paqueta will be left to rest for this meeting. Disappointed at the start of the season in the league, OL will be aiming for a sixth consecutive victory in Europe, aiming to gain confidence ahead of a trip to Lille on Sunday, for the 18th day of Ligue 1.
Twelfth in Ligue 1 after 17 days, OL are facing the onset of a crisis, even more so with Juninho’s announced departure early next year. In addition to the firm return point, OL were also sanctioned by a game behind closed doors this Wednesday, but already served as part of a precautionary measure against Reims. The match against OM will be played again at the Groupama Stadium but without supporters.
