Olympique Lyonnais struck deep into added time to maintain their perfect start in UEFA Europa League Group I and deny Hapoel Kiryat Shomona FC.

Shimon Abuhazira gave the hosts an early lead, but three goals in 14 minutes meant Lyon took a 3-1 advantage into the break. Kiryat Shomona roused themselves nonetheless and pulled level thanks to a Lior Levi strike and Abuhazira's penalty, only for Gueïda Fofana's last-gasp header to snatch victory for the Ligue 1 club.
