REAL SOCIEDAD WINS 0 - 2 OLYMPIQUE LYON | 1º LEG CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PRELIMINARY QUALIFIER

Excellent result for Spanish Football Club Real Sociedad defeating Olympique Lyon 0 - 2 in the 1ºst leg of the Champions League preliminary qualifier. Deserved victory away that should make things a little more easier for the return 2º leg where Lyon will have to go all out.

The match was settled by two extraordinary goals that will be travelling around the global in the next 24 hours. When Real Sociedad was still nervous & struggling to find themselves, young Griezmann appeared & scored the first goal in the 16th min in an overhead fashion that was absolutely spectacular.

This allowed Real Sociedad to settle & dominate the match, while Real Sociedad goalie Bravo kept the occasional dangers from Lyon out as they arrived in his area, with great save included.

The second half started as the first ended & in a counter-attack Real Sociedad forward Seferovic received the ball from 40 mts & surprised everyone - & the Lyon goalie - by shooting at goal to score the second in the 50th min. Marvellous long range effort that caught everyone out.


Then Real Sociedad decided to settle for the result & this gave back the initiative to Lyon which created chances for them & they even hit the bar from a corner. However Lyon defender Bisevac received a red card in the 75th min & left his team with 10 men & in doing so without steam. Real Sociedad settled again , controlled & nearly got a third. 

Real Sociedad leaves France with a better than expected result & has to defend it well & keep out Lyon in the return game. They are close to achieving a Champions League place for this season, lets hope they can hold on. If they play like tonight they should be able to do so & create Club history again.
