Depay excels with hattrick at season start Lyon

Memphis Depay has started the new season in the Ligue 1 excellent. Nine days after the elimination by Bayern Munich in the semi-finals of the Champions League, the striker Olympique Lyonnais led with a hat-trick to a 4-1 victory over Dijon in the first round of the French league

Lyon was left behind by a goal from AurΓ©lien Scheidler and five minutes before half time Depay had the chance to shoot the home side on level terms from the penalty spot. Where Depay against Juventus still opted for a panenka, he now directed the ball tightly to the corner.

For Champions League finalist Paris Saint-Germain, the competition will only start after the inter-country period on 10 September. Then the away game against RC Lens is on the program.
