The essentials The 35th day of Ligue 1 ended in the Louis II Stadium with a number of goals. Lyon achieved a great performance with their victory in Monaco. But at the final whistle, the players got blows.

OL is 4th overall, just 1 point behind the Monegasques, 3rd.
The Monegasque Volland opened the scoring in the first period (25), Depay answered him in the 57th, the end of the meeting was then full of adrenaline. 3 goals in the last quarter of an hour: Marcelo (77) gave Lyon the advantage, then Ben Yedder (86) connected the two teams – very temporarily – before Cherki (89) finally sealed the result of the game for orienteering players.
At the final whistle, the situation escalated a bit and there was a general brawl.
The meeting’s referee, Clément Turpin, dealt four red cards during these brawls (five in total, the Lyonnais Maxence Caqueret had been disfellowshipped during the meeting).
