2001-02: Monaco 2 OL 1 (Givet (og))
2002-03: Monaco 2 OL 0
2003-04: Monaco 3 OL 0 (a victory which allowed Monaco to take a 10 point lead over OL after 20 league matches, but OL would then gradually catch up on the future Champions League finalists to finish champions of France)
2004-05: Monaco 1 OL 1 (Clément, equalised in the 95th minute of a feisty and physical match (more than 40 fouls))

2006-07: Monaco 1 OL 0
2007-08: Monaco 0 OL 3 (Keita (2), Fred, with a Kader Keita implicated in all three OL goals as it was following one of his shots which hit the post that Fred was able to score)

2009-10: Monaco 1 OL 1 (Bastos, with a powerful free-kick from 30 metres)
During the first match between the sides this season at Gerland, in Week 1 of the Ligue 1, Claude Puel and Guy Lacombe’s (replaced in January by Laurent Banide) ended the game with a no score draw. Hugo Lloris and Stéphane Ruffier the goalkeepers, both put in excellent performances, which had their say in the result finishing as it did.
