After consecutive wins in the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France, Lyon's winning run continued on Saturday in the league this time as they defeated Bordeaux 2-1 away from home, with Maxwell Cornet scoring an equaliser and then setting up the winner within the space of four minutes.

After Lyon went behind after an awful defensive error, they toiled to try and get back into contention, which they did in fortuitous fashion after Cornet cut inside from the left wing before firing a deflected strike into the bottom corner.

There was no fortune involved in his role for the second, though, as he opened up his stride with a run through the middle before picking out a perfect, slid pass into the feet of Moussa Dembele, who lashed home into the far corner.

He was productive all game for Lyon in other areas, too, sending seven successful crosses into the box and sending 27 passes into the final third which was the second-most of anyone in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Defensively there was plenty of work put in also as he won 7/10 duels and made nine ball recoveries.
