Angers captain Ismael Traore was shown a straight red in his side's 2-1 loss to Lyon in Saturday's French top-flight game.

Referee Ruddy Buquet did not hesitate to give the Ivorian defender his marching orders for a dangerous tackle on striker Moussa Dembele 34th minutes into the game.

This season, Traore has scored three league goals and is likely to miss his side's next two games.

Lyon took advantage of the numerical shortage with goals from Houssem Aouar and Memphis Depay in the 61st and 88th minutes respectively.

Senegal’s Cheikh N'Doye assisted Cristian Lopez to half the deficit for the hosts in the 88th minute.

Burkina Faso's Bertrand Traore was on parade for the winning side before he was replaced by Martin Terrier in the 82nd minute.

Angers dropped to the 11th spot in the Ligue 1 table with 12 points from 11 games. They travel to Saint-Etienne for next league fixture on November 4 after locking horns with Guingamp in Wednesday's Coupe de la Ligue.
