UCL: Cornet And Fekir Stun Favourite, Manchester City At Etihad

A goal apiece from Nabil Fekir and Maxwel Cornet was enough to condemn Manchester City to a 2-1 loss to Olympique Lyonnais.

City came into the match as favourite but were caught off-guard by Lyon as Pep Guardiola was left clueless from the stand.

Lyon went into the break with two goals lead and were able to hang on to a win as City got a consolation goal through Bernardo Silva.

Lyon were clinical in the attack and Cornet grabbed a goal after 26 minutes of play; playing Fekir’s cross into the bottom-left corner of the net.

Fekir got a goal for himself in the 43rd minute by finding the net from the edge of the box.

Lyon came close to getting a third goal but were denied by the bar.

Leroy Sane, who came in a substitute, showed his worth by playing a back pass to Silva to put City on the score sheet.
