Lyon beat Real Betis 1-0 in the Europa League last night, though sadly it wasn’t the following half-way line super smasher from Yoann Gourcuff (remember him?) that separated the two sides – what with it being chalked off as player was stopped a millisecond before the French midfielder left fly due to one of Betis’ players ‘keeling over’ with a nothing injury…


Damn shame.

More great disallowed goals in the series…

#1: Daniel Pablo Osvaldo (Roma) vs Lecce
#2: Edinson Cavani (Napoli) vs Barcelona
#3: Thiago Silva (PSG) vs OGC Nice
