Lyon warms up for Barca with 2-1 win over Guingamp in France
LYON, France (AP) — Lyon warmed up for its Champions League meeting with Barcelona by beating Guingamp 2-1 on Friday to strengthen its hold on third place in the French league.
Goals from Martin Terrier and captain Nabil Fekir were enough for Lyon to move three points behind second-place Lille and six ahead of Saint-Etienne.
Terrier, who had earlier had a goal ruled out for offside, scored with a fine finish on the rebound after Houssem Aouar tried his luck from distance in the 15th minute.
Buffon’s arrival at PSG puts Areola in a difficult position
PARIS (AP) — Gianluigi Buffon's arrival at Paris Saint-Germain has brought Alphonse Areola's promising career to a sudden halt.
The goalkeepers are 15 years apart in age, with a chasm of experience and achievement separating them, but Areola has reason to feel let down after establishing himself as PSG's No. 1 last season.
The last thing he probably expected was for PSG to sign Buffon, who, although still among the world's best 'keepers, turns 41 in January.
