At the scene of their last exit from the UEFA Champions League ten seasons ago, Real Sociedad de Fútbol marked their return to the competition with a stylish victory over Olympique Lyonnais.

Antoine Griezmann's sensational volley against his boyhood club announced their return to European football's top table before an equally sublime goal from Haris Seferovic doubled the difficulty of the second-leg task facing Rémi Garde's team, who had defender Milan Biševac dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    A perfect away performance from Real as they score two precious away goals, but also keep an all important clean sheet. It just was not Lyon's night tonight, but take nothing away from Real, they defended superbly and scored two magnificent goals. Jagoba Arrasate must be delighted with his team.
  • Yellow Card
    86
    Cadamuro (Real Sociedad) is booked.
  • Substitution

    Pardo (in) - Zurutuza (out) (Real Sociedad)
  • Yellow Card
    80
    Xabi Prieto (Real Sociedad) is booked.
  • Red Card
    75
    Biševac (Lyon) is shown a second yellow card and is dismissed.
    Carlos Vela twists and turns to get away from Milan Biševac. The Lyon defender cannot stop the No.11 and succeeds only in fouling him right on the edge of the penalty area. It is his second booking and he is sent off.
