Certain Lyon players’ success in front of goal has been little less that extraordinary this season...
Karim Benzema is not too bad either: five goals from 22 shots (ten from outside the penalty area and 12 from within)... nine shots on target, seven blocked and six off target. Two goals with the right foot, one header and two with the left foot. All five goals were scored from inside the penalty area, including two penalties. The five goals came in nine matches (three in the starting line-up) and a total of 365 minutes. He has scored in each competition that OL have entered this season (Trophée des Champions, Champions League and Ligue 1).
The two strikers score at an average of one goal every 73 minutes, or more than one goal per game.
As for Tiago, he has already scored four goals from 15 shots (nine from outside the area) and seven on target. All four goals have come from inside the penalty area with two headers from corners, one goal following a free-kick and one from open play. He has played six matches, all in the starting line-up.
