Moussa Dembele’s double heaped more Champions League heartache on Manchester City as Lyon advanced to the semi-finals with a stunning 3-1 victory in Portugal.
Maxwel Cornet gave the French side the lead, capitalising on a loose ball after Karl Toko Ekambi’s run in behind, to beautifully curl inside the near post with Ederson helpless.
Kevin De Bruyne’s gorgeous pass found Raheem Sterling at the back post, only for Cornet’s block to save OL, before the England winger brilliantly found Rodri, whose shot was too soft to beat Anthony Lopes. The brilliant Belgian finally brought the sides level with a clean finish into the bottom right corner after Sterling’s fine work to keep the ball in and pick him out on the edge of the area.
The game hinged on a VAR decision to allow substitute Dembele’s coolly taken goal. And Lyon capitalised on a dreadful Sterling miss to stretch their lead thanks to Ederson’s clanger, allowing Dembele to break City hearts once more and book a semi-final date with Bayern Munich.
