Bertrand Traore nets first Champions League goal as Lyon hold Hoffenheim

The 23-year-old capped a superb display with a goal plus an assist in his side’s away draw in Germany on Tuesday

Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traore scored his first Uefa Champions League goal in Lyon’s 3-3 draw at Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Traore exploited a defensive error form the hosts to slot past Oliver Baumann in the 27th minute before Andrej Kramaric levelled score six minutes later.

Kramaric put Hoffenheim ahead for the first time two minutes into the second-half, courtesy of an assist from Kerem Demirbay.

Traore assisted Tanguy Ndombele for the equaliser before Memphis Depay struck for the visitors against the run of play.

However, substitute Joelinton's dramatic late intervention secured a point for Julian Nagelsmann’s side.

With this draw, Lyon are second in Group G with five points after three games. They welcome Hoffenheim in the reverse fixture on November 7.
