Lyon had chances but lacked accuracy to win against Seville in their Champions League match. The Spaniards however could have led with a larger score …
Lyon started well the first half, with the pace. Fekir is the first to show dangerous in this part, with a left-footed shot on the edge of the area that hits the bar. The reaction of Seville did not expect Vitolo with a free kick that found the head of Vietto but Lopes is on the path.
Lyon was unfazed and won several corners, including one where Nasri nearly upset his own keeper by putting his head back. Ben Yedder will be the first to shake the nets, however, but its goal will be disallowed for offside difficult to see. At the break, both teams are logically separate a draw.
Ben Yedder opens his account
On the returnfrom the changing rooms for the second half, Seville started to play with more rhythm and light up a first strand by Nasri’s long shot. It’s a little later than Ben Yedder decides to open his account in the Champions League with a headed goal on discount Vietto (1-0, 52 ‘).
Lyon did not let it get them down, and Tolisso tried with several situations but lacked the success in his attempts. Seville also had opportunities, including a penalty. Vietto however, completely missed his attempt sending it over the bar.
Tolisso, once again, found the bar on a superb strike again. Lack of Lyon’s success. Seville, however, continues to grow and has a multitude of opportunities. Score therefore logical for the Spanish.
