Due to Coupet's injury for the 2007 portion of the Ligue 1 season, Vercoutre became Lyon's first choice keeper and played in every game until Coupet's return. During that time, he made a crucial penalty save in the Champions League against Stuttgart which helped Lyon progress to the Last 16. Vercoutre has now been relegated back to the second choice, however not after leaving the impression that he is a good keeper capable of handling Champions League pressure.
After the departure of Hugo Lloris to Tottenham Hotspur in August 2012, Vercoutre became the first choice goalkeeper for Lyon. Vercoutre so far has made a slightly above than average appearance in the French league and in the Europa league as well, once again proving that he can handle European and top league pressure very well and professionally.
