France forward Nabil Fekir scores 1st league hat trick as Lyon beats 10-man Caen 4-0


Nabil Fekir scored his first French league hat trick Saturday as last year's runner-up Lyon won 4-0 at Caen.

Fekir got his first in the 18th minute, tucking the ball across former Lyon goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre following a lovely pass from Corentin Tolisso.

The duo combined again a minute from halftime. Fekir ran onto Tolisso's long ball and bedazzled Caen defender Chaker Alhadhur before squeezing a shot in off the far post.

Tolisso also had a hand in the third, passing the ball to Mathieu Valbuena who set up Fekir for a first-time shot.

Caen had defender Damien Da Silva sent off in the 73rd for a reckless tackle on Claudio Beauvue.

Beauvue netted late on with a stunning strike from a tricky angle.
