Lyon and coach Remi Garde did an absolute number on Gareth Bale last night, playing deep and dense, shutting him down quickly and suffocating the Welsh whippet in open play – yet he still managed to come away with two goals, thanks to a duo of deliciously dipping doppleganger freekicks.



That’s some mighty fine trajectory you got there Gareth m’lad!

While we’re on the subject, Lyon’s goal – an angled rasper from 19-year-old left-back Samuel Umtiti – wasn’t half bad either…

Yowser! With contact that clean, we bet he didn’t even feel that one leave his foot. Lovely strike.
