Lyon opened the scoring by Memphis Depay in the 31st minute. Well launched by Martin Terrier, the Dutchman cheated Costil with a cross shot (1-0).
In Montpellier, Youssouf Koné had sentenced his team by being expelled. Facing Bordeaux, it is another former Lille who complicated the task of his teammates. For after the red card received by Thiago Mendes, OL saw Bordeaux equalized by Jimmy Briand (1-1).
The international truce could be good for the group and Sylvinho who must find solutions to revive the OL. Next game of Lyonnais: September 14 against Angers.
