Lacazette, Wahi each score four in nine-goal thriller

·1-min read

Alexandre Lacazette and Elye Wahi have both scored four goals but only one of the strikers saw their team win, as Lyon overturned a 4-1 deficit to beat Montpellier 5-4 in a Ligue 1 thriller.

Lacazette completed his quadruple deep into added time from the penalty spot, sparking wild celebrations.

A goal down shortly before halftime, Montpellier led 4-1 after Wahi completed his own quadruple in the space of 15 minutes.

But Lyon hit back with two more goals from Lacazette and one from Dejan Lovren, before the late, late penalty settled a breathless encounter.

"We are disgusted, we had done the hardest (work)," Montpellier midfielder Jordan Ferri said.

It was the first time two French league teams had a player scoring at least four goals in a match since Reims beat Monaco 8-4 in 1974.

Lacazette - the league's top striker alongside France star Kylian Mbappe - took his tally for the season to 24 as seventh-placed Lyon kept alive their hopes of qualifying for European competition next season.

Mbappe scored his 24th league goal during Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 victory at Patrick Kisnorbo's doomed Troyes.

It was a welcome win for the defending champions following a turbulent week which included a home defeat and Lionel Messi's suspension for making an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia.

The win extended PSG's lead over Lens at the top of the table to six points, with four games left to play.
