LIVE – Reims-Lyon: Lyonnais breaks just before half-time

Reims already on the attack

But a flag is raised for Ito’s offside.

Here we go for the second half!

The kick-off was given and Reims began.

It’s halftime!

At the end of the first 45 minutes of play, Reims leads Lyon (1-0), thanks to a goal by Zimbabwean midfielder Marshall Munetsi (45+1).

Reims takes advantage!!!! (1-0)

After a cross from Ito from the right, Munetsi, completely alone at the near post, catapults the ball with his head under the crossbar!

There will be additional time…

…but only for a minute, minimum.

Daramy stays on the ground

In the area, on the right, Daramy collapses, hit in the face, while he was in contact with Alvero…

Tolisso is countered

At the entrance to the area, after a Tagliafico serve, Tolisso took advantage of his opportunity from the left, but it was blocked by Foket.

Another yellow card

For a foul on Cherki, Abdelhamid is cautioned.

These things are not an opportunity.

From a distance, after a free kick, Matusiwa shoots from the left, but goes wide.

First yellow card issued

For a big foul on Teuma, Alvero receives a yellow card. The first of this meeting.

Lyon’s new attempt

On the edge of the area, Cherki shoots from the right, but De Smet counterattacks.

De Smet called for order

Big mistake by De Smet on Kumbedi. The referee calls him to order and surely will not hesitate to show the card next time.

Reims 2-3 Lyon

This is the record for shootings, for the moment.

Kumbedi lets himself be fooled

Kumbedi is served on the right. He then crossed into the area, but was offside.

Possession of the ball is for…

Reims, with 52% compared to 48% for Lyon.

Munetsi’s head.

After a cross from the right, Munetsi, at the near post, headed but went wide.

This doesn’t fit!

Diomandé tries to hit

More fear than harm for Baldé

The Lyonnais got up and the match can resume.

Baldé is on the ground in the area.

After a moment of hesitation, the Reims defense managed to break free. But Baldé remained on the ground…

Reims tries to react

The Rémois are trying to get their foot on the ball, but at the moment they are finding it difficult to create danger.

Alvero takes responsibility

Alvero shows his power and puts himself in the middle again. His long-range shot from his right forced Diouf to dart quickly to his right, before grabbing the ball in two steps.

Baldé shows himself

After a cross from the right, Baldé, at the near post, dives and tries to head the ball, but the ball slides too far.

Tolisso’s first goal

In the area, Tolisso shoots from the left, but Foket counterattacks.

Here we go for the first period!

The kick-off was given and Lyon began.
