Lyon beat Auxerre for third Ligue 1 win this season

Lyon claimed their third Ligue 1 win this season when they beat promoted AJ Auxerre 2-1 at home on Wednesday.

At the Groupama stadium, Tete headed home after 29 minutes and Toko Ekambi doubled the advantage on 72 minutes when he volleyed home from Rayan Cherki's corner.

Autret took full advantage of Lyon's passive defending 10 minutes from time to halve the deficit with a low angled shot but it was too little, too late from the visitors, who are eighth on seven points after five matches.

Elsewhere, Monaco suffered their second defeat when they lost 4-2 at home against Troyes, a result that left them a mediocre 14th on five points.

Monaco, who have not won at home in three games at the Louis II stadium this season, were down to 10 men after 44 minutes after Guillermo Maripan picked up a second yellow card.
