Lyon had to come from behind against group-winners Leipzig to earn the point they needed to progress.

Dutch striker Memphis Depay found the back of the net eight minutes from full-time after Houssem Aouar’s superb second-half goal had reduced the deficit. The Ligue 1 conceded two first-half penalties in a catastrophic start at the Groupama Stadium.

It was a bad night for Zenit St Petersburg, who were heading for the last-16 of the Champions League until Lyon scored their equaliser in the last ten minutes.
