In what was surely a convincing win against Dinamo Zagreb, Lyon ensured that they began their UCL campaign in style.
The Les Gones ensured a comfortable starting point by winning their first UCL game against Modri by 3 goals to 0. With this win, a little pressure has been eased off the backs of the Lyon’s boss, Bruno Genesio.
The goals began coming in during the first half period of the game when Corentin Tolisso’s first goal was later followed by goal strikes from Jordan Ferri and Gnarly Cornet. This win ensured that Les Gones finally ended its two-game losing streak which was fast raising questions about the future of the Lyon’s boss.
