Lyon end PSG’s unbeaten run

Paris Saint-Germain’s unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 season is over after the league leaders suffered a 2-1 defeat to Lyon on Sunday.

The defending champions, who were without star man Neymar due to injury, had won 18 games and drawn two prior to their visit to the Groupama Stadium, but they were handed their first loss thanks to goals from Moussa Dembele and Nabil Fekir.

When Angel Di Maria opened the scoring early it looked like a familiar story, however Lyon were writing their own script and dominated the opening period.

They got their reward through Dembele just after the half hour, and Fekir’s penalty secured the three points – Lyon defending resolutely to cling on to a memorable victory.
