PARIS (AP) — If Lyon was looking for a confidence boost in Caen ahead of its trip to Manchester City next week, the seven-time French champion got the opposite on Saturday.
Against a side reduced to 10 men after 55 minutes, Lyon drew 2-2 in Normandy following a late equalizer from Ferland Mendy which spared the blushes of another defeat.
Lyon will travel to England full of doubts for the start of its Champions League campaign.
PARIS (AP) — Timothy Weah, the son of former Paris Saint-Germain player and current Liberian President George Weah, scored his first Ligue 1 goal for Paris Saint-Germain during a match against Caen on Sunday.
The 18-year-old Weah, who also plays for the U.S. national team, took advantage of a mistake by Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba to score in the 89th minute of a 3-0 victory.
PARIS (AP) — Neymar took just 10 minutes to score defending champion Paris Saint-Germain's first goal of the season, and teen striker Timothy Weah netted the first of his French league career, in a 3-0 home win against Caen on Sunday.
On the same pitch where he broke his foot against Marseille six months ago, Neymar ran onto a pass from midfielder Christopher Nkunku and coolly slotted the ball past goalkeeper Brice Samba and into the bottom left corner.
