FT: Lyon 3-0 Everton.

As you were for the Toffees. Another damning, damaging defeat dumps them out of the Europa League. Traore, Auoar and Depay with the strikes to condemn Unsworth's side to their fifth consecutive defeat.


Stoppage in injury time as Auoar suffers a knock.


Three minutes of stoppage time, if anyone still cares.


Rafael surges down the right, plays the ball inside for Ferri, who crosses for Depay. The Dutchman gets above ahead of Holgate to head past Pickford, and kick Everton when they're already down and out.


GOAL! Lyon 3-0 Everton (Depay)


Mariano pearolls a shot that Pickford gathers easily. Both sets of sides going through the motions now, with the game already done and dusted.


Aouar sees yellow for a late challenge on Baningime. Unnecessary.


Another Everton pass goes out of play. It's listless from the Toffees now. They know their fate.


RED CARD! Morgan Schneiderlin receives a second yellow for a daft, late challenge.

Silly from the Frenchman, who is being jeered off by his countrymen.


Williams passes the ball to Kenny, who lets it roll straight out of play. Sums up Everton's season so far.


Lookman is fouled by Rafael, who picks up a yellow card for his troubles.

Sigurdsson on duty to take, and his ball just evades an Everton head. Williams should have connected.


GOAL! Lyon 2-0 Everton (Auoar)

A long punt upfield to Mariano is blocked by Pickford. The ball falls to Memphis, who plays it to Auoar, who fires comfortably into the net.

Everton's Europa League campaign is over.


Everton win a free-kick high up through Calvert-Lewin.

Sigurdsson's ball is overhit, Kenny does his best to keep it alive but the officials deem it to be out of play. A very tight call.


Lyon try for a second but Cornet's well-struck effort flashes just wider of Pickford's right post.

Unsworth makes his final change - Lennon off, Vlasic on.


The ball fortunately finds it way into Traore's path. The Burkina Faso international outpaces Williams, waits for Pickford to commit himself before slotting the ball low into the net.

As it stands, Everton are out. Traore has now been withdrawn for Mariano.


GOAL! Lyon 1-0 Everton (Traore)


A well-worked move from Everton leads to Sigurdsson's second chance of the evening. Schneiderlin wins the ball back tenaciously before Lennon and Calvert-Lewin to tee up Sigurdsson, who flashes a shot wide.


Lyon make a change as well- Fekir off, Aouar on.


Unsworth makes his first change of the evening - Idrissa Gueye makes way for Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Gylfi Sigurdsson will be absolutely delighted.


Great work from Lookman as he gets around the outside of Mendy. The young winger drives into the box and lays the ball off to Sigurdsson, who just can't flick the ball over the goalkeeper. Replays show the Iceland international should have done better.


Fekir is set away and surges into the penalty area. Holgate stays with him before going to ground in an attempt to win the ball, and is perhaps lucky to not concede a penalty, like he did in the reverse fixture a fortnight ago.

Schneiderlin goes in the referee's book for running his mouth. Approaching the hour mark at the Groupama Stadium.


Not an inch being given or taken as both teams battle for supremacy. Besic then hands Lyon a chance on a plate but Cornet can only shoot straight at the goalkeeper.


A very early chance for Everton in the second half!

Gueye combines well with Lennon and forces a good save out of Lopes. Lookman tries to follow up with the rebound but Diakhaby is there to clear. Encouraging for the Blues.


Both teams are back out for the second half, which Lyon get under way.
