Before the match, the German side had only 1 point, occupying the last position of group F, and, playing at home, they had the obligation to win if they wanted to continue having chances of making it to the next round. The French side, on the other hand, were in the first place of the group, with 4 points after beating Manchester City and a draw with Shakhtar Donetsk.

As the match started, Lyon were clearly better, holding the ball and going to attack with their fast players. And the first goal was French. Hoffenheim’s defense had a bad moment, with Baumann passing terribly the ball to Vogt. Traore stole the ball and fired home from close-range, putting the away side in front of the scorer.

6 minutes later, the German side found the equalizer. After good passes, the ball ended up with the top scorer Andrej Kramaric. 1-1.

The first half ended like that and both teams had the break to think what they could do to play a better second half and try to win. The home side started better, scoring their second goal just 2 minutes after the beginning of the second half. The goal was once again scored by Kramaric, who didn’t give chances to the goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to make a save.

After that, the German defense was playing a very good football, giving a hard time to Lyon’s attack. At the 59th minute, the French side found the equalizer with NDombele, who even not having a good angle, was able to shoot to the goal and score the 2×2.

At the 67th minute, Lyon came back once again. Depay used his speed to win the battle against Akpoguma and scored.

Hoffenheim fans were already feeling the farewell, once the defeat would mean a disqualification in the UEFA Champions League. In order to try to avoid that, the coach Nagelsmann subbed a defender off for Nelson, a forward. Things were still difficult for the home side, but at the 92nd minute, with the help of the referee, they were able to score the 3×3. Joelinton scored after a crossing, however, he was on an offside position.

It was honestly a great game to watch. Hoffenheim got their goals with good passes and a little help from the referee. Lyon scored their goals with the speed of their front players. With the result, the French side fell down to the Second position as Manchester City beat Shakhtar as Hoffenheim are still alive on the competition.
