Rambert, Combin, Mekloufi …
Fifth of D1 in 1963 and qualified for the Cup Cup as a finalist of the Coupe de France, Lyon starts the 1963-64 season with great ambitions.
Curiosity, the Lyonnais will use for this season two sets of different jerseys. One with a round neck, the other identical, with a button collar.
The latter is used in particular in the derby of September 22, 1963 against Sainté. A crazy match, with an incredible success of the Greens 5-4, despite the tripling of Rambert for Lyon.
At the end of the season, Etienne’s enemy is crowned champion of France, but OL is not outdone, since he won the first trophy in his history.
Thanks to a double of Combin, the Gones beat Bordeaux in the final and won the Coupe de France.
For the occasion, the jersey used was the one with round neck. Go find some logic.
