French League Cup: Canaris send Lyon crashing

26 October 2005 10:28

NANTES, Oct 26 (SW) – Olympique Lyonnais have suffered their first knock of the season following their early exit in the French League Cup last night against Nantes.

Serge Le Dizet’s Canaris were eager to get their own back on the French defending champions, following their 0-1 defeat in the league earlier this season, and a 30th-minute effort of Diallo fired the hosts into a promising lead, against a Lyon side short of a number of stars, rested by manager Gerard Houllier.

The score remaining unchanged until late in the game, Houllier then decided to bring in Carew and Malouda to hopefully see a reverse of fortune for his side, and it eventually paid out, as the tall Norway international deflected a long ball with his head onto Govou who managed to grab an equalizer in the dying minutes of the game.

Put under pressure by l’OL during extra-time, Signorino (excellent last night) and his team mates however managed to hold onto their draw, and it all came down to penalty shoot-outs, where Mickaël Landreau once again shined to send the French giants crashing out of this year’s French league cup campaign.

Likewise, second division Lorient grabbed their qualification to the next round against league rivals Amiens following their successful penalty shoot-out session (5-4), having been held 2-2 by the visitors after normal time.
