Brest vs. Lyon: Memphis Depay’s penalty sends Lyon top of Ligue 1. Ligue 1 Results: Brest 2-3 Lyon
Lyon survived a second-half scare from Brest to secure a 3-2 win and move top of Ligue 1 standings provisionally.
Goals from Tolentino Coelho de Lima, Houssem Aouar, and Memphis Depay put the visitors in the driving seat as Lyon went to half-time with a resounding 3-0 lead.
But, the home side started brightly after the restart and Brendan Chardonnet reduced the deficit eight minutes into the second half. Then in the 74th-minute, Irvin Cardona pulled another one back and ensured nervy 16 minutes for the visitors.
However, Rudi Garcia’s men kept their composure and secured all three points to move above Paris Saint-Germain and Lille, who will be in action on Sunday.
Both these teams will be in action on Sunday, 28 February: Lyon will travel to Marseille and mid-table Brest will be up against AS Monaco.
