Lyon fans should be hard done by as it was their team who had the better chances with multiple one-on-one scenarios that ultimately didn't come to anything. QPR took the lead against the break of play when Junior Hoilett was fouled in the box, a penalty slotted away by Ricky van Wolfswinkel. Lyon continued to pile on the pressure but their hard work was undone by two yellow card challenges in a few minutes to see Marcelo get his marching orders. Massimo Luongo secured the points for QPR with a header 8 minutes from time.
