Soccer-Lyon held by Zenit in disappointing start to Champions League

LYON, France, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Olympique Lyonnais started their Champions League campaign in disappointing fashion as they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.

Memphis Depay’s penalty cancelled out Sardar Azmoun’s first-half opener as the French side, who have drawn six straight home Champions League games, dominated after the break without inflicting any serious damage on their opponents.

Zenit, who have now failed to win any of their last 10 European away games, dominated Lyon’s midfield in the first half before running out of gas.

Benfica play Leipzig in the other Group G game later on Tuesday. (Writing by Julien Pretot; Editing by Toby Davis)
