Watch: Moussa Dembele Scores First Two Goals For Lyon

The former Celtic man managed to open his Ligue 1 account with a slick brace for his new side, Lyon.

Moussa Dembele scored his first two goals for Lyon in two minutes on Wednesday in Dijon to set his team on course for a 3-0 victory that lifted them into second in Ligue 1.

The 22-year old striker, who joined from Celtic on August 31, scored the opener after 17 minutes with a first-time chip over the goalkeeper and two minutes later added a second, acrobatically putting home a rebound.

Martin Terrier headed a third in the 35th minute.

On a night when six early matches produced six red cards, Lyon played the last 34 minutes with 10 men after Lucas Tousart received a second yellow card. Dijon’s Enzo Loiodice followed in the final minute.

Lyon are on 13 points from seven games, five points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain who were in action later at home to Reims.
