    Man of the match

    Alexandre Lacazette is the obvious choice, but we are actually going to give it to Bradley Barcola.

    The 20-year-old was really impressive after coming on, and set the pace for Lyon when he was introduced.

    He scored the second goal to give his team the lead, and almost got a brace when he struck the post just minutes later.

    Definitely one to watch for the future this lad, Bradley Barcola, remember the name.

    A double defeat for Liverpool

    A great set of penalties from Lyon, who scored all five of their pens in the shootout, which sees them walk away from this game with all four points.

    They won the 90 minutes by three goals to one, thanks to a brace from Alexandre Lacazette and a brilliant finish by substitute star boy Bradley Barcola.

    That performance was made all the more impressive considering that they went 1-0 down within 48 seconds of the game beginning.

    Mo Salah had a chance to put them 2-0 up from the spot, but fluffed his lines and had his penalty saved by Anthony Lopes.

    The compulsory shoot-out followed, in which Lopes made another save from the spot, this time to deny Calvin Ramsay.

    It was a game that really had everything in terms of action, skill and drama, and Liverpool will be hoping to rectify that performance against AC Milan up next…

    Really close to a third for Lyon, as they hit the post!

    This has become a much tougher test for Liverpool in the second half, largely due to the world class players that have left the pitch.
