With six points on the clock and a leader’s chair in his group, Olympique Lyonnais has launched its European campaign perfectly. The Rhone club signed a second success in a row, this Thursday, clearly dominating the Danes of Bröndby (3-0). And if Peter Bosz’s side showed their technical superiority early enough in this game, they had to wait until the second act to force the opposing lock.

The Cameroonian international signed a double, first by unblocking the situation shortly after the hour mark (1-0, 64th), then by doubling the bet less than ten minutes later (2-0, 71st). Opportunistic scorer, the former Sochalien then donned the costume of passer in servant Aouar for the goal of 3-0 at the end of the match (86th). The score has not changed. The contract is completed with mention for OL.
Monaco must be satisfied with it
For its part, AS Monaco had to be content with a score of parity on the lawn of Real Sociedad (1-1). An interesting result in terms of butte considering the opposition, but disappointing compared to its scenario. Because after the opening of the score of Disasi from the quarter of an hour of play (0-1, 16th), the men of Niko Kovac believed to hold their victory, but Moreno equalized at the return of the locker room (1-1, 53rd). With four points in two games, the Principality club is second in its group, alongside PSV Eindhoven.
