Football: Memphis Depay Helps Lyon Beat Guingamp


An inspired Memphis Depay scored twice as Lyon recovered from falling behind to last-placed Guingamp to win 4-2 in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
Marcus Thuram, the son of France 1998 World Cup champion Lilian Thuram, headed Guingaes at the Stade dump ahead on 21 minutes at the Stade du Roudourou.
But Lyon hit back through midfielder Houssem Aouar on the hour after he was set up by Depay, with the Dutchman then curling the visitors into a 2-1 lead with a shot from just outside the area.
Depay struck again with a sensational 30-yard free-kick, although Thuram gave Guingamp hope with a penalty on 79 minutes after a handball by Jeremy Morel.
Maxwell Cornet wrapped up the points for Lyon five minutes later as he volleyed in a leftwing cross from Depay to keep Lyon in fourth.
Guingamp remains at the foot of the table, level on points with  Thierry Henry’s Monaco, and are set to reappoint Jocelyn Gourvennec next week after the club sacked Antoine Kombouare on Tuesday.
Gourvennec, 46, led Guingamp to the French Cup title in 2014 during a six-year spell at the club.
Monaco host runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.
