Rennes vs Lyon
12 Aug, 02:45am

Lyon got off to a rousing start with a 4-0 thrashing of Strasbourg. Alexandre Lacazette who, the Lyon faithful wondered aloud after seeing Mariano Diaz helped himself to a brace. The 24-year-old Diaz is a Spanish-born Dominican footballer who was at Real Madrid for five years before making the switch. Manchester United flop Memphis Depay also chalked up an excellent display, and seems to be forming a telepathic relationship with the club's academy graduate, Nabil Fekir, who also scored a brace in the Strasbourg win. Rennes, meanwhile, were held to a 1-1 draw at new boys Troyes. Rennes are a young attacking team, but have found it hard to beat Lyon in their previous 8 home meetings with just 1 win.
