Isheanesu Mutyambizi| Tinotenda Kadewere seems to be enjoying life in the French Ligue 1, as he scored for the second time in a row for his side Olympique Lyon, beating OG Nice in emphatic fashion.

The Les Gones which is the clubs nickname which means “The Kids”, are now unbeaten in the last eight Ligue 1 away games (W6 D2), after having lost four of their previous six matches (W1 D1). The club’s captain Memphis Depay was the first to score from the penalty spot, followed by Tinotenda Kadewere who slotted it home after a defensive error to give the visitors a two goal lead.

OG Nice replied before the end of the first half through Amine Gouiri, to give the host a glimpse of hope in the second half. But two goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Houssem Aouar put the game out of reach for The Eagles, with the scoreline 4-1 at the end of regulation. This was the first time in 2020 Lyon scored four goals in an away game in the league and the club is aiming to maintain its amazing run, as they are believed to rival against the French giants Paris Saint Germain for the title this season.
