Lyon defeat Guingamp to win first match of the season
Olympique Lyonnais today defeated EA Guingamp 3-0 in front of 2474 spectators at the Stade de Gerland. A solid performance from the guests, particularly goalkeeper Emmeline Mainguy, saw Lyon remain goalless until the 43rd minute when Lotta Schelin found the back of the net on a corner, assisted by Camille Abily.
In the second half, it was Schelin again who ensured a Lyon win as she finally got the ball past Mainguy in the 83rd minute. Ada Hegerberg then added a third goal - her first competitive goal for her new club - in the 88th minute assisted by Louisa Necib.
Lyon will next play newly promoted side FC Metz, who lost their first game 2-0 to ASPTT Albi, on September 7.

Lineup: Bouhaddi – Petit (Majri 46’), Kumagai, Renard, Dickenmann – Henry, Bussaglia (Hegerberg 46’), Abily – Le Sommer, Schelin, Necib (Traore 89’).
