Clément Grenier's second-half header secured a first UEFA Europa League Group I win for Olympique Lyonnais, with HNK Rijeka's hot streak in front of goal going cold in France.

The 22-year-old was the home side's biggest threat throughout, eventually finding a way past Ivan Vargić on 67 minutes when he darted into the area to get a head to Steed Malbranque's devilishly pitched cross from the left. Rijeka came into the match having scored 14 without reply in their previous two domestic fixtures, but Leon Benko and Mehmed Alispahić were left to ponder the cost of a couple of near misses as the Croatian club remain rooted to the foot of the section.
