― Reuters picPARIS, Jan 22 ― Memphis Depay's last-gasp goal earned Olympique Lyonnais a 2-1 home win against 10-man Paris St Germain, cutting the Ligue 1 pacesetter's lead down to eight points yesterday.

Unai Emery was already without Brazilian superstar Neymar, who missed the trip to Lyon as a result of a thigh injury.

Nabil Fekir opened the scoring for the home side with a brilliant free-kick after just two minutes before Layvin Kurzawa drew PSG level on the stroke of half-time.

The hosts came close again with just over 10 minutes of normal time remaining when a scramble in the area saw the ball strike the back of Rafael's head from close range, although PSG were fortunate to see it loop over the crossbar rather than in.

Fekir caught goalkeeper Alphonse Areola out of position and bent the ball superbly into PSG's net.

Kylian Mbappe was taken off on a stretcher after colliding with Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes but PSG's club doctor Eric Rolland said it was "nothing serious".

Depay went on to score the victor with the last kick of the game in the fourth minute of injury time.

The visiting side emerged from the interval chasing the victory, but they were a man down with 57 minutes gone after Alves was sent off.

PSG went into today's game against Lyon nine points clear at the top of the table.

However, a 94th-minute victor from former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay ensured that Lyon would climb up to second in the table, ending PSG's eight-match winning streak in the process.
