Depay scores victor as Lyon beat PSG

Adjust Comment Print

On Sunday night, he took his form to a new level as he fired in a long-range belter in injury time as his side dramatically felled league leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the Groupama Stadium.

PSG were without their injured Brazilian star Neymar, who scored a quadruple in Wednesday's 8-0 demolition of Dijon. He scored his 16th goal of the campaign with a sublime free-kick.

However, the game looked to be headed for a draw, until in the 94th minute, Depay cut in from the left before unleashing an outstanding effort which flew into the back of the PSG net.

Marco Verratti sent a drive over the crossbar after 51 minutes and Kurzawa wasted an opening to add his second goal, but as PSG began to crank up the pressure they were reduced to 10 men.

Dani Alves, who fed Kurzawa's for his eye-catching goal, was sent off for a foul on a Lyon player. But against Lyon he let his club and his teammates down by getting a stupid red card after an hour for shouting in the face of the referee. We tried to play and kept possession but we conceded a last minute goal and it killed the match.

The only remaining well-known potential candidate is now Mortada Mansour, the head of Egypt's legendary Zamalek football club. The next appeal hearing is due in early March. "All options are open, including quitting the race", he said .

The win sealed Lyon's position on the table.

Not a bad way to condemn PSG to only their second league defeat of the season.

"We had opportunities and possession of the ball, 1-1, that would have been a fair result".

Rachid Ghezzal took full advantage as Monaco extended their lead in 67th minute, when he curled a high-quality shot past substitute goalkeeper Quentin Beunardeau. While Halep had it easy following her marathon match in the previous round, Kerber was made to fight for every point by Hsieh Su-wei.
