Lyon come back to beat Nantes

4 August 2006 22:54

NANTES, Aug 4 (SW) - The French Ligue 1 season kicked off with defending champions Olympique de Lyon beating Nantes 1-3 with goals from Benzema, Squillaci and Fred.

And the season started well for the home side, Nantes. After only four minutes at the Beaujoire-Louis-Fonteneau stadium, former Ajax Amsterdam player Nourdin Boukhari took a free kick from about 28 meters, and beat goalkeeper Vercoutre for 1-0.

But two minutes later, the 18 year old Karim Benzema levelled from a John Carew assist, to quickly end the home fans' celebrations.

From here on, Nantes began to play well but could not score any goals against Lyon, who left many of their key players on the bench.

But the reigning champions took the lead themselves three minutes after the hour mark, when a chaotic situation ended with Sebastien Squillaci heading past Stojkovic for 1-2.

The match was decided with two minutes left in regular time, when Kim Källström came down the left to pass the ball to Fred, and the substitute easily scored his side's third goal of the night.
