Ajaccio 3-1 Olympique Lyonnais highlights: Lyon missed out on the opportunity in equaling PSG points at the top of Ligue 1 table after Les Gones got beaten by struggling Ajaccio on Sunday.
The visitor were very keen on picking up all three points as they pour forward right from the start and could've taken the lead should Alaxandre Lacazette's goal wasn't ruled out for offside. However, the young Frenchman got his payback early in the second half when he finally opened the scoring for his side with a fine half volley.
Ajaccio woke up almost instantly though as it took them less than five minutes to grab the equalizer through Chahir Belghazouani low shot. That goal lifted the home team's morale as they began to create more trouble for Lyon's defense which lead into a second goal scored by Adrian Mutu on 64 minutes.
The visitor stunned by that second goal and immediately stepped up another gear in search for an equalizer which they should have gotten if Batefimbi Gomis managed to convert his spot kick. Unfortunately for Lyon, soon after they missed the penalty things turned the other way as Ajaccio were rewarded a penalty kick which was coolly finished by Mutu to seal the victory for the host.
