Suspended at the weekend, he went largely untested over the course of this match. First forced into action on the hour mark, and would make his only meaningful stop from Leko.
Big night for the young centre-back, who shouldered a good deal of the defensive burden against the team he started his career with. Caught out once early in the game, but otherwise gave a hugely mature performance.
Captain for the evening, he made his presence felt both on an offensive and defensive front. Bombed forward with regularity and delivered quality consistently from his flank, but when asked to defend he was simply unmoving. A terrific showing.
Rarely tested out wide, the former Porto left-back was able to get forward frequently to help out Michel Bastos. Gave a fine account of himself, showing all of his best qualities; speed, energy and crossing.
Lyon’s player of the season to date, he was a little quieter than he has been in recent weeks but still offered some excellent service to Gomis in attack. Showed good strength and pace, but his finishing touch was not quite there.
Highly regarded playmaker stepped into the shoes of Yoann Gourcuff with assurance once again, though he certainly needs to work on his finishing. On the stroke of half-time he took a superb touch to pull down a Kallstrom cross, but his shot was saved. His control deserved a goal it was so good.
Often the unsung hero in the Lyon side, the Swedish midfielder was once again magnificent for OL. Dominated the centre of the pitch and some of his deliveries from the left were otherworldly. Created the second goal with a corner that was perfectly taken.
Has started the season in excellent form and may well be named in Laurent Blanc’s France squad. He displayed the kind of level that has caught the eye of ‘Le President’. Energetic and strong in the centre of the field, he also showed an eye for an incisive pass going forward.
A striker showed his confidence with a sublime lob to break the deadlock. The France forward had previously contrived to miss a glorious chance after just two minutes, blazing well over the top. Missed another sitter in the first half; the kind of chance that will have to be taken against better sides. Taken off with half an hour to play.
Has had a difficult start to the campaign and struggled to offer a consistent threat out wide, but when he got going he proved difficult to stop. Showed intelligence with his distribution, mixing it up well from the wide areas.
Was magnificent against Real Madrid, but the goalkeeper had some difficult moments at Stade Gerland, badly misjudging an early corner, which should have seen his side punished. Had little chance with either goal, and prevented a third in the first half with a good save from Grenier.
The Argentine left-back is a player who is known for his desire to push forward, but he was to prove something of a weak link during this encounter. A dreadful first half clearance nearly cost his side a goal, and he was constantly beaten down his flank. Did deliver one wicked first half cross, though.
Was put under intense pressure by Gomis and the remainder of the Lyon attack, and he had a hard time coping. Made a couple of vital interceptions to through balls but always seemed to be on the stretch. Dreadful defending on Kone’s goal, as he let the centre-back go unmarked in the box.
Actually gave a pretty good performance given that all those around him were crumbling in a disappointing fashion. Showed confidence and leadership, even making a couple of lung-bursting runs forward when the chance presented itself and was actually his side’s most likely scorer. Deserved better support.
The 17-year-old struggled to offer anything positive to his side, he was absent as an offensive force and didn’t provide the necessary cover to his full-back, Ibanez. A largely ghostly presence from a player full of promise, but who was out of his depth in France. Withdrawn at half-time.
Previously on the books of Monaco, he was deployed at right-back and had a very difficult evening coping with Lyon’s left flank. Lyon were frequently able to make headway down his channel, and this was an evening he would do well to forget. Booked as he was caught for pace by Cissokho.
Offered so much-needed dynamism through the centre of the field, making a number of piercing runs and several clever passes. A really intelligent performance from his side’s best attacker.
Had Dinamo’s first meaningful effort on goal, but his rising drive simply cleared the bar by several feet. Found it really difficult to get into the game as Lyon dominated the midfield sector.
The Croatia international was signed in the summer from Red Bull Salzburg, but he failed to provide the kind of presence in the heart of the field that his coach would have wanted. Overwhelmed and withdrawn with around 15 minutes remaining.
Much of the Croatian’s best work was funnelled down the centre, so it was little surprise that the right-sided player was overlooked for much of the game. Moved into a more central position in the second half but was still very quiet.
Lyon's dominance for much of the contest was to the detriment of the attacker, who saw little of the ball throughout as his team toiled to create clear chances.
- 12 F. Lončarić
Brought on at half-time to add experience to a badly shaking back line, which would revert to a back three due to his presence. Won a number of headers and offered the kind of presence that his side could have used from the outset.

Came on at half-time, but failed to make his presence felt to a particularly great extent. Did help steady the midfield.
Came on with just under 15 minutes to go.
