Olympique Lyon score over PSV

February 22, 2006 03:57 IST

Champions League Last 16 first leg
Arsenal 1 Real Madrid 0
Benfica 1 Liverpool 0
Bayern Munich 1 AC Milan 1
Olympique Lyon 1 PSV Eindhoven 0

Olympique Lyon beat PSV Eindhoven 1-0 in the Champions League last 16 first leg match on Tuesday after goalkeeper Gomes misjudged a 25-metre free kick from Juninho.

In a re-run of last season's quarter-final, won by PSV on penalties, the home side created the better chances.

Gomes's blunder proved decisive for the Dutch champions, however. They were unable to score despite playing the last 10 minutes with a man extra after Lyon's Sidney Govou was sent off 10 minutes from time.
