It was on ground No.10 at Pleine des Jeux that Claudio Caçapa played his first game since injuring his thigh on 19 January.

His last appearance was for Olympique Lyonnais’ trip to the Stade Marcel-Picot, against Nancy on 14 January… The captain had opened the scoring after a superb lead-up work from Karim Benzema. The following Thursday he left Tola Vologe holding his left hamstring before declaring: “Now I’m a Lyon fan.” Seven weeks later he was back in action at Tola Vologe, right on schedule.
On a sunny Wednesday the regular CFA Captain, Mourad Benhamida, counted eight professionals in his squad for the visit of Monaco and Claudio was one of them. He played for 67 minutes alongside Diatta, Benhamida and Réveillère in defence.
“Antho”, who hadn’t played a full 90 minutes since the visit of Lille back in December, was back in action on his right flank and combined well with his old partner Sidney Govou on the wing.
