Gent keeps Champions League hopes by winning 2-1 at Lyon

25 November 2015, 09:36

Lyon— Striker Kalifa Coulibaly scored in the fifth minute of injury time as Gent won 2-1 at Lyon on Tuesday to maintain its chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Lyon failed to properly clear a corner and Coulibaly nodded home from close range to punish a lackluster Lyon side that led through midfielder Jordan Ferri's seventh-minute goal.

The Belgian side equalized in the 32nd minute through Danijel Milicevic's cleverly-worked free-kick.

The win moves Gent onto seven points and above Valencia into second place in Group H behind Zenit St. Petersburg — which beat Spanish side Valencia 2-0 in the group's other match.

Gent can guarantee qualification by beating already-qualified Zenit at home on Dec. 9.

Lyon's one point sees it miss a Europa League berth.
