With 52.1% of the total playing time granted to their « local » players, OL are in second place in the standings and are beaten only by Athletic Bilbao (56.5%) and their traditional policy. sports baseball. A good performance, even if the poor results of the Lyon club temper the enthusiasm around the young Gones.

Montpellier (39.6%) and Toulouse (29.4%) are the other well-ranked French clubs, with pretty four and seven places.
