Another cool quiz !

Blanc was sacked last September, their current coach is Fabio Grosso.

I would suggest "Juninho" as a type-in (in France he is known as this single name), "Gerland" for Stade de Gerland, and "ASSE" for Saint-Etienne as well.

Derby Rhône-Alpes is heated, but is not relevant for a few years as Saint-Etienne fell into Ligue 2. A more heated derby these days is the "Choc des Olympiques", or "Olympico", with Marseille. To the point that OL buses on away matches at the Vélodrome are routinely welcomed with stone-throwing, which is an absolute shame (two weeks ago, coach Grosso was injured in the face due to shattered glass !!!)

But due to the very bad fit of Lyon in Ligue 1 this season (not a single victory to this date), the recurring joke is that the Rhône-Alpes derby will reappear either in Ligue 2 or in relegation playoffs 😅
