Hubert Fournier hosted his former club, Stade de Reims last evening and he couldn’t have been happier with the 2-1 victory. Fournier was the man who help guide Reims back into the Ligue 1.
In the 6′ Lyon was given a free kick, which Fekir delivered superbly. He found Corentin Tolissa who converted for the opener. In the 36′ Reims leveled through Benjamin Moukandjo and the game would have been 1-1, but Lacazette struck a wonderful shot towards goal, which goalie Johny Placide put into the back of the net.
Talk about the curse of the goalies this week!
Lyon is now in 3rd place with 30 points while Reims holds their own in 9th with 22 points.
