The final masterstroke

On 20 May 2012, Le Gym travelled to Lyon for the final game of the season. Although it would have needed a cataclysm for René Marsiglia’s side to be relegated, with a draw being enough, they headed to Gerland with the determination of a team in danger, focussed on keeping their safety in their own hands. 

They weren’t to be beaten by a difficult start to the match and Les Aiglons turned things around thanks to a beauty from Esmaël Gonçalves (3-4). In doing so, they secured the club’s first league win in Lyon since 1973.

On Saturday, we are delighted to offer the opportunity to relive this masterstroke in Le Gym’s battle for survival from 8pm on OGCNICE.tv.
