Craig Dawson comes to his head on a corner to allow West Ham to open the scoring against Lyon in the Europa League quarter-final second leg this Thursday (at The Indian Paper 1). Deccan Rice doubles Hammer’s lead.
Terrible cold shower at Groupama Stadium. Still well in their match, OL conceded two goals in the second leg of this Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final (live and exclusively on The Indian Paper 1) against West Ham. Upon receiving an inbound corner hit by Pablo Fornals, Craig Dawson appeared at the close post to deceive holder Julian Polersbeck in the absence of Anthony Lopes, thus opening the scoring for the visitors (38th).

more realistic hammers
Dawson, who has already scored twice this season in the Premier League, took the Lyon defense by surprise to put Hammer ahead on the scoreboard. Brutal for Goons, whose pressure was a little less strong after the first half hour. Peter Bosz’s men, clinging to the first leg (1–1) in England, had plenty of ammunition to score, but Carl Toko Ekambi was particularly lacking in success. The Cameroonian international found Alphonse Ariola’s post with a heavy strike in the fifth minute.
Back at the wall, Leonis was punished for the second time in the 42nd. On a header from Emerson, captain Declan Rice shot Polarsbeck on the edge of the field with a shot from the right for 2-0.
