Jonathan Mensah sees red in Evian defeat
Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah saw red as Evian were pushed closer to the relegation zone after a 3 – 0 defeat at Olympique Lyonnais.
With Lyon having taken the lead through Bafetimbi Gomis early on, the Ghana international was booked for an aerial challenge in the 39th minute. The referee brandished another yellow shortly after for what he deemed as a verbal infringement.
Shortly after Mensah was sent off, Lyon went 2-0 up. In the 43rd minute, Gueida Fofana sent Alexandre Lacazette through on goal and the forward clipped the ball neatly past Bertrand Laquait. Lacazette added the third for the hosts in the 76th minute to seal the win.
