Alexandre Lacazette’s late brace saved the day for Lyon in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Lille, marking a miraculous comeback in a high-stakes Ligue 1 match at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille aimed to exact revenge on Lyon after their only defeat in the last 12 head-to-head fixtures, but their early pressure nearly backfired when Bradley Barcola’s counterattack was thwarted by a strong save from Lucas Chevalier.
Laurent Blanc’s frustration was palpable as Lille struggled to convert their chances, with the team being winless in their last six away league games against top-half teams, but they soon gained momentum and came close to scoring through Jonathan Bamba’s effort from a tight angle and Angel Gomes’ strike from outside the box, both of which were dealt with expertly by Remy Riou to keep the scores level going into halftime.
Lyon were dealt a major blow at the start of the second half as they conceded a goal less than a minute after the restart, with Jonathan David tapping in from close range following a brilliant team effort involving Jonathan Bamba, and things got worse for the visitors on the hour mark when they conceded a penalty after a cynical challenge by Rayan Cherki, which David converted calmly to make it 3-1 to Lille.
With Lacazette’s arrival providing an injection of energy, Lyon launched a final assault, and the French striker proved instrumental yet again by netting a sensational equalizer from outside the box, securing a valuable point for the visitors and completing his brace to cap off a memorable comeback.
Alexandre Lacazette completed a stunning hat-trick, scoring an incredible volley in the 89th minute to secure a 3-3 draw for Lyon against Lille. The French striker’s heroics, combined with referee Benoît Bastien’s VAR intervention to overturn Lille’s third penalty, saw both sides miss out on valuable points in their quest for European qualification.
