This heartwarming scene, captured by cameras, added a personal touch to the high-stakes encounter.

Rayan Cherki, known for his skill and technical prowess, was joined by his younger brother in the tunnel leading to the pitch, creating an endearing moment that resonated with fans and players alike.   

Lyon emerged victorious in the derby, securing a 2-1 win over Lille. Cherki, living up to a promise made to his brother, scored the second goal for his team.
