Lyon debuted in Ligue 1 with a comfortable victory against Amiens while Girondins, weighed down by the expulsion of Brazilian Pablo, conceded the first defeat of the season.
The set of Bruno Genesio added the three points in a match preceded by the offer to the fans of the World Cup at the last World Cup in Russia 2018 that showed Nabil Fekir with a return around the pitch. The French international, star of Lyon, was low in the clash against Amiens.
Subjected to rumors about a possible transfer, Fekir will be available to participate in the meeting that will take place next Friday against Reims. In the final stretch of the match, the Dutch Memphis Depay scored the second and sentenced the shock (2-0).
THE GIRONDINS HAVE A ‘BAD’ PREMIERE
The Girondins, on the other hand, did not have the premiere that any team wishes to have in its first official game.
In the Matmut Atlantique the public contemplated the first setback of his team. The men of Gustavo Poyet fell against Strasbourg (0-2), which monopolized the numerical superiority that had been available since the 13th minute, when the Brazilian Pablo was sent off and the Bordeaux team was left with ten players.
