Olympic Lyonais 2  Montpellier 2 (4-2)

American credibility in world soccer took another step forward on a rainy afternoon in New Jersey as the Trophée des Champions took place between Olympique Lyonnais and Montpellier at Red Bull Stadium on Saturday.

This was the first time that an established European league’s opening trophy match took place on American soil, and the French Ligue 1 curtain raiser did not disappoint.

Lyon tied Montpellier 2-2 in an exciting regular time before a few saves from Hugo Lloris allowed Jimmy Briand to win in it for them 4-2 in penalties.
