Lyon trim PSG's Ligue 1 lead with 2-1 win

Dani Alves, who fed Kurzawa's for his eye-catching goal, was sent off for a foul on a Lyon player.

Alves received a straight red after aggressively squaring up to referee Clement Turpin when a decision was given against him.

PSG went into today's game against Lyon nine points clear at the top of the table.

Former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay came off the bench to score a sublime 94th minute victor for the hosts.

The Brazil worldwide winger has struggled for game time this season - playing only 79 minutes of competitive football - and has been told by his coach that he is no longer in his plans.

Star striker Nabil Fekir scored his 16th league goal of the season with a brilliant free-kick.

The game seemed to be heading for a draw before Depay won Lyon three points with a dream goal.

Government Shutdown May Impact CDC Response To Flu Outbreak
Right now, most of the country is seeing high activity of the H3N2 flu strain-the most unsafe of the four seasonal flu strains. Health officials say influenza activity has increased and is now widespread in 49 states, except Hawaii, according to the CDC.

There may be an 11 point gap between the two sides but many would say that in another season, this Lyon team would have won the title easily.

Monaco overcame a sluggish start to beat last-placed Metz 3-1.

Quite a selection of goals, with Depay's the best of a very fine bunch.

Brazilian left-back Jorge opened the scoring for the reigning champions on the stroke of half-time and Rachid Ghezzal added a second after visiting goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima was sent off.

Watch the video here - It definitely looked worthy of a red card.

Depay has grappled to rise up to his expected form in the past few weeks but has now triumphantly silenced the critics by netting in a splendid long-range attempt at goal in the injury time, marking the match-winning goal of the substantial fixture against the French capital.
