Lisandro puts Lyon in control

Lyon will take a handy advantage into the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Bordeaux after they came out on top in a thoroughly entertaining clash at Stade Gerland.

Lisandro Lopez had given the home side a 10th-minute lead when Mathieu Bodmer found him in space inside the box and he finished from close range.

Marouane Chamakh nodded home a leveller just four minutes later for Bordeaux.

However, Michel Bastos' fierce shot and Lisandro's late penalty saw Lyon secure a two-goal advantage to take Stade Chaban Delmas.
