Paris, Feb 21, 2020 (AFP) - Five days out from facing Juventus in the Champions League last 16, Lyon clinched a morale-boosting 2-0 win at Metz on Friday in French Ligue 1.

A penalty from Moussa Dembele in the eighth minute of injury time at the end of the first half and a goal from Houssem Aouar after three minutes of stoppage time in the second half gave Lyon the three points.

It was a first win for Lyon following two draws and two losses and moved them into sixth place in the table on 37 points.

Lyon gave a debut to Brazilian winter transfer window recruit Bruno Guimaraes while Leo Dubois returned from a knee injury suffered in November.

Metz, who went down to their second home defeat of the season, stay in 15th place with 28 points.
