in the second round of the

French

league as the country experienced its worst heat wave in

years.

All the goals were in the second half, with Troyes winger

Jean-Christophe Bahebeck giving his team the lead in the 47th

minute.

Lyon dominated the rest of the match, having 60 percent of

possession and hitting back through Gomis in the 51st, Michel

Bastos in the 65th, Lisandro Lopez in the 89th and Gomis again in

added time.

2-1 against defending champion

which led through an early strike by Emmanuel Herrera, the

Argentine striker who arrived in the offseason to replace Olivier

Giroud.

Ludovic Giuly was prominent as Lorient equalized through Alain

Traore in the 90th minute before Jeremie Aliadiere struck the

winner in stoppage time.

While Lorient has four points after two rounds, Montpellier is

winless with just one. Its team of homegrown players is yet to

replicate the form that led to last year’s success. Although the

team was missing several key players because of injury and

suspension on Saturday.
