Caen 0-4 Lyon
Nabil Fekir grabbed a hat-trick as Lyon won 4-0 at Caen in Ligue 1.
Lyon had to work hard as the victory was not as comfortable as the scoreline suggests with the visitors' goalkeeper Anthony Lopes producing several smart stops.
But Fekir's finishing was of the highest order as the France international scored three times between the 18th and 57th minutes and Caen's afternoon took another turn for the worse when defender Damien Da Silva was sent off.
Caen's bright start was undone when Corentin Tolisso rolled in Fekir and he outwitted Da Silva to fire home left-footed.
But Lopes came to the rescue when he denied Jonathan Delaplace in a one-on-one after Julien Feret had slipped past his fellow midfielder.
Caen were within inches of equalising when Andy Delort's thunderous free-kick struck the crossbar and Lopes then gathered another shot from the striker at the second attempt.
Lyon scored their second against the run of play on the stroke of half-time with Tolisso again the provider and Fekir the finisher off the post.
Jeremy Morel headed Da Silva's header off the line but Fekir completed his hat-trick in style when he powered home Mathieu Valbuena's pass.
Da Silva deservedly saw red for a dangerous 73rd-minute challenge, the defender's studs catching Claudio Beauvue's Achilles, and Lyon inevitably made their extra man count four minutes from time.
This time it was Beauvue rather than Fekir who took the plaudits with a vicious swerving volley from the edge of the penalty area to make it 4-0.
