Gary Neville off to disappointing start as Valencia lose to Lyon [VIDEO]

UCL TUESDAY: City claim Group D | United crash out | Ronaldo sets new mark.

Neville made a bold move at the start of the second period by throwing on Alvaro Negredo for his first appearance in over two months in place of the more defensively minded Danilo. Yet, despite the home fans roaring on their side with encouragement after Zenit briefly restored parity against Gent, it was Lyon who again posed the greater threat after the break on the counter-attack.

Lacazette blasted over from close range before he played in Sergi Darder with a wonderfully timed pass, but the former Malaga midfielder was denied by another fine stop from Domenech.

There was nothing the Valencia stopper could do 15 minutes from time, though, as Lacazette was released in behind the defence and the French international sprinted beyond Abdennour before slotting home his second Champions League goal of the season.
