Karl Toko Ekambi scored twice as his French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais crushed relegation threatened Girondin of Bordeaux by 6-1 in this Saturday’s Match-Day 32 outing.
The game which started as a slow burner as both sides didn’t find a way to goal in the opening 19 minutes.
M Gusto and Moussa Dembele combined to good effect in the 20th for the latter to the host ahead.
It will soon be 2-0 when Toko Ekambi completed another Lyon offensive play seven minutes after the opener.
Having struggled all season and in the presence a Lyon side keen on a reaction after their quarter-final elimination from the Europa League, Bordeaux were in for a long afternoon.
Lucas Paquetta scored Lyon’s third goal 11 minutes before the break thus leaving Peter Bosz’s side with a three goal cushion at the interval.
Things will get even worse for Bordeaux upon resumption as Romain Faivre scored the fourth for the host just a minute upon resumption.
Toko completed his brace in the 68th minute but Sékou Mara pulled one back for Bordeaux before Moussa Dembele completed the rout with his second of an afternoon which summarized Bordeaux’s sorry season.
The 6-1 victory is Lyon’s 13th win this term while Bordeaux accepted their 16th defeat in a game in which both Cameroonians lasted the duration.
The latest goals takes Toko’s league tally to ten goals and three assists in 25 games this season.
