Regarding penalties...

OL defeated PSG on penalties on Sunday. That hasn’t happened often in recent years…

Lyon’s last penalty shoot-out win was back in the 2004 edition of the Tropheé des Champions versus PSG. Against Nantes in the 2005/06 Coupe de la Ligue 2005-2006, PSV Eindhoven in the 2004/05 Champions League and against Clermont in the 2004/05 Coupe de France, the
Olympians had no luck at all. There were three more bitter moments just before the 2004 triumph v PSG: v Lens in the 2003/04 Coupe de la Ligue, v Sochaux in the 2002/03 Coupe de la Ligue and v Bordeaux in the 2001/02 Coupe de la Ligue.

It’s interesting to note that of the last 10 shoot-outs , 3 have been held at the Stade Gerland for 3 wins and one on neutral territory (Cannes) v PSG in 2004. The six other shoot-outs on opposition soil have all ended in defeat.
