Dembelé opened the scoring after just eight minutes of play after a pass by Bruno Guimarães. Denayer, with assistance from Shaqiri, extended at 19 of the final stage. Lucas Paquetá, who left the bench, at 30, scored the third 42. The visiting team also took a discount with Diallo taking a penalty at 51. Thiago Mendes started among the starters and was replaced in the second half.
– I’m very happy to have returned from the national team and have had the opportunity to enter the second half to help my teammates. Scoring goals is always important, but the main thing is to win. And we achieve this with a very good and safe acting. It’s to keep working to go higher in the standings – said Paquetá.
Lyon returns to the field in the middle of the week, for the Europa League, when they visit Rangers. In the sixth round, the team faces PSG, at Parque dos Príncipes, next Sunday.
