General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 And that, is that! The referee brings an end to tonight's proceedings and the home crowd erupts to the sound of his whistle.
90' Three minutes of injury time added on by the officials. Put them out of their misery ref!
89' Poor attempt on goal by Plzen, and just their second of the second half. The ball falls to Hejda on the edge of the box and he tries a dipping volley that goes high and wide. Sums up their night really.
88' Lyon are seemingly happy to see this game out now, passing the ball around in defence and hoping for Plzen to press so they can find a route behind their back line.
85' B. Koné enters the game and replaces M. Dabo.
Plzen's passing just hasn't been up to scratch this evening, especially considering their opponents in Lyon have been spraying it around like Barcelona. The away side have completed just 68% of their passes so far tonight, which is just not good enough at this level.
83' B. Gomis enters the game and replaces A. Lacazette.
Oooh dear. It really isn't Plzen's night, is it? Bolek receives a pass from his defender and the ball bobbles in front of him and Gomis bears down like a man possessed. Luckily the goalkeeper manages to find his feet and clear the ball before the striker can get a touch on the ball.
81' M. Duris enters the game and replaces M. Petržela.
Just what Plzen needed. Bafetimbi Gomis looks all set to enter the field of play to replace the excellent Lacazette. No mercy from Garde.
79' It was nearly Briand's turn to get on the score sheet but after a wonderful through ball from Mveumba set him free, the forward is called back for offside. Given his form in front of goal, he'd have probably missed it anyway.
76' Lyon know how powerful their lead is now and are spraying the passes about the pitch to the sound of 'ole' from the home crowd. If I was a betting man, I'd say there will be a few yellow cards in the closing stages here as Plzen begin to get frustrated.
74' L. Hejda enters the game and replaces P. Horváth.
Still plenty of time left for Plzen to get themselves back in to this tie, but with the pace that Lyon have on the break it's hard to see how they can do so without only hurting their cause further.
