On Sunday night,October 19,Olympique Lyonnaisthrashed Montpellier 5-1. Yoann Gourcuff netted a brace with Nabil Fékir, Alexandre Lacazette and Steed Malbranque scoring the other goals. Oddly enough this match was a far tenser affair than Lyon's 3-0 triumph over Lille.
In the early stages Montpellier looked lively and wasted a golden chance to take the lead, when Lucas Barrios failed to convert a one-on-one opportunity when racing towards Anthony Lopes' goal.
It's not every day that I get to attend a Ligue 1 game. It's certainly not every day that I prepare to attend a Ligue 1 clash by watching live Premier League action as part of a program Match of Ze Day (yep that's what it's called).

Having been sent-off against Toulouseat the weekend after the referee took offence at his "sniper" goal celebration, PSG striker Edinson Cavani was treading on eggshells after he spun neatly and popped away the 87th-minute winner against APOEL in the Champions League last night.
Barcelona suffered a rare group stage defeat at Paris Saint-Germain while Manchester City once again struggled at home in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The match-up in Paris between PSG and Barcelona brought up the stars with Jay-Z, Beyonce and David Beckham all taking in the game. And they saw Barca concede for the firs time this season as the Lique 1 champions won 3-2.
The marque matchup on Champions League match day two is Barcelona's trip to the Parc des Princes to play French giants Paris Saint-Germain. Barca's trip will be a little easier with the news that PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss Tuesday's match due to a nagging heel problem.
"As the different tests carried out this morning on the problem with his left heel were not satisfactory, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out of the match against Barcelona," said a statement released by PSG on Monday.
Shortly after Marseille had registered their eighth win on the bounce against Toulouse on Saturday to go seven points clear at the top of Ligue 1, coach Marcelo Bielsa was spotted celebrating in the only way he knows how vigorously poring over his side's Prozone stats on his own at a McDonald's just down the road.
Argentinian tactician and all-round look Marcelo Bielsa has done a superb job with Marseille this season in Ligue 1. However, during his side's clash with Toulouse, the unpredictable 59-year-old made a rather bad decision when choosing a place to rest his weary bones.

Paris St Germain have won the French Ligue One in each of the last two years. Backed by Qatar Sports Investments' financial prowess the Parisians have been a class apart from the other sides in the league.
Already plagued by injuries, PSG will now have a suspension to deal with over the course of the next few weeks after Edinson Cavani was one of three players sent off during their feisty 1-3 victory over RC Lens at theStade de France on Friday evening.
Lens hadbothJean-Philippe Gbamin andJerome Le Moigne dismissed over the course of the evening, with the former picking up asecond yellow in the 54th minute for shovingCavani in the penalty area.
Bastia striker Brandao has been banned for six months by theLigue de Football Professionnel(LFP) for head-butting PSG midfielder Thiago Motta during a confrontation in the tunnel after the fixture between the two sides on 16th August.
Tunnel-cam footage of the incident circulated almost immediately which clearly showedBrandao was guilty of two things: 1) head-butting Motta and then, 2) running away like a massive wimp.
This will surely go down as the summer of the god-awful corner kick, with Wayne Rooney, Serge Gakpe and Keisuke Honda all ensuring an unforgettable few months of abject ineptitude.
The latest addition to the oeuvre comes courtesy of Marseille's Dimitri Payet, who managed to hit the top of the stadium with his corner against Guingamp at the weekend thanks to an interfering piece of loose turf or at least that's what he wants you to think.

Four games have been played in France in this 2014-2015 season. There is no suspense in the title race, as Monaco's ambitious project is going into oblivion after the transfers of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, while no club can compete with PSG's dream team. This season, the interesting part will be the race for second and third place between Monaco, Lille, Bordeaux, Saint-Etienne and Marseille.

The best club tournament in the world returns this week, as Real Madrid will begin defence of their Champions League trophy on Tuesday.
The competition kicks off with an array of enticing fixtures, including Arsenal's trip to Borussia Dortmund, the first of three showdowns between the Premier League and Bundesliga, as Manchester City also play Bayern Munich and Chelsea meet Schalke.
The curious case of Adrien Rabiot - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Adrien Rabiot is still a PSG midfielder but that might change in six-months' time. Arsenal and Roma were thought to be interested in the precocious 19-year-old with the later more likely to sign him up when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The hysteria of transfer Deadline Day has come and gone, and like a fraternity the day after hosting a "Back to Campus" party, a number of teams have to live with the consequences of their rushed decisions. On World Soccer Talk we've covered a number of angles on the pros and cons of the transfer window for the teams, leagues and media companies, however, we haven't touched on the transfer window itself.
In a weekend full of surprises Real Madrid and Manchester City both lost and Bayern Munich were held, while Chelsea scored six and Ibra got a hat trick.
Spain Real Sociedad ended a torrid week on an almighty high as they came from 2-0 down to stun Real Madrid. Having lost to Liga new boys Eibar and exited the UEFA Europa League, another chastening defeat was on the cards, but the Basque club completed a stunning turnaround to win 4-2.
Done Deal: Tottenham agree to sign French midfielder - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal to sign French defensive midfielderBenjamin Stambouli. The 24-year-old midfielder plays for French club Montpellier, who confirmed the news via their official twitter handle.
Ligue 1 side Montpellier HSC are reeling today after their stadium was absolutelydevastated by freak floods on Monday evening.
According to RFI, the city in the south of France was hit by a torrential downpour on Monday night which flooded the city and forced thousands of people to sleepin railway stations, airports and schools.
Partly as a gesture of their appreciation for the increasing the profile ofFrench football and partly, one suspects, because dropping his name into conversation is always good for precious, precious HITZ, Toulouse have sent a special, social media-friendly birthday message to Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the anniversaryof his 33rd year here on Earth.
One of AS Monaco's largest supporters groups is urging fellow fans to take action and start demanding refunds for their season tickets after the Ligue 1 club flogged off two of their biggest stars, James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, over the summer.
According to L'Equipe, the aggrieved administrators of thePlanete ASM fan site have issued a blog statement entitled,"Supporters, demand a refund for your season ticket," in which they implore "hungover" Monaco fans to do just that.
It's edging ever closerandManchester United are now on the home stretch in their bid to finalise a loan deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.
However, the Telegraph are reporting that United have had to agree to pay the Colombian striker's absolutely extortionate Monaco salary (£18million per annum) in full in order to push the deal through, meaning that they're going to have to find£346,000-a-week to shovel into the 29-year-old's bank account.
With James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao already jumping the Monaco ship this transfer window, it seems like Joao Moutinho may have had a word in his agent's ear and tasked him with landing a move before he's stuck treading water at the Stade Louis for another six months.
