Football: Lacazette injured as Lyon humbled by Dijon

PARIS, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 27th August, 2016) - In-form Alexandre Lacazette scored before coming off injured in the first half as Lyon collapsed to a 4-2 defeat away at promoted Dijon in Ligue 1 on Saturday. Lacazette put the visitors 2-1 up on 37 minutes at the Stade Gaston-Gerard with his sixth goal already this season after Corentin Tolisso's opener for Lyon had been cancelled out by a Frederic Sammaritano penalty. But the 25-year-old, who on Thursday was recalled to the France squad for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign, then hobbled off just before the break and was later seen with strapping and an ice pack around his left knee.

Things got worse for Lyon as Dijon came roaring back with goals by Julio Tavares, Dylan Bahamboula and Pierre Lees-Melou to claim their first points since returning to the top flight. "I am worried.

When a player comes off before half-time it is always worrying," Lyon coach Bruno Genesio told Canal Plus at half-time before adding that the player would undergo tests on Monday to determine the extent of the problem.
