Let (X,0), a subset of (R^n,0), be the germ of a closed subanalytic set and consider two subanalytic functions f and g:(X,0) ->(R,0). Under some conditions, we relate the critical points of g on the real Milnor fibre f^{-1}(\delta) \cap B_\epsilon, 0 < |\delta | << \epsilon << 1, to the topology of this fibre and other related subanalytic sets. As an application, when g is a generic linear function, we obtain an "asymptotic" Gauss-Bonnet formula for the real Milnor fibre of f. From this Gauss-Bonnet formula, we deduce "infinitesimal" linear kinematic formulas.
