Lyon Beat Strasbourg To Go Third In Ligue 1

Former French Ligue 1 champions Olympique Lyon are up to third on the league table after a straightforward 2-0 win over visiting Strasbourg at the Groupama Stadium on Friday night.

Summer signing Martin Terrier gave the hosts a first half lead for his first goal since he joined the club from fellow top flight side Lille Metropole.

Burkina Faso international forward Bertrand Traore then wrapped up the easy win for the Champions League campaigners in the second half.

The routine win catapults Lyon above their opponents as they move seven spots up the table from 10th place to joint third with six points from the first three league games of the season.

On the other hand, Racing Strasbourg drop two places from 7th to 9th spot with four points from three games.
