Maxime Le Marchand deflected a cross from the Netherlands international into his own goal as Nice picked up a point at Parc OL on Saturday evening

Memphis Depay has had his moments since signing for Lyon from Manchester United in January. 

Aulas: Lazaette has Atleti deal

The winger won Ligue 1’s Goal of the Season prize with a spectacular effort from inside his own half against Toulouse, but there can be little doubt that there was a good deal of fortune on his side as he opened the scoring against Nice on Saturday.

After breaking down the left, the Netherlands international’s cross was intercepted by visiting centre-back Maxime Le Marchand, whose attempted block looped into the net past Yoan Cardinale. 

The encounter finished 3-3, with Alexandre Lacazette grabbing a fine double for OL.
