This year's Champions League group stage already turning conventional wisdom on its head produced an almost too perfect score for Lyon 7-1 against Dinamo Zagreb. The result propelled Lyon into the knock out stage over Ajax who were favoured to proceed with Real Madrid at the top of the group.
Lyon achieved the three points and made up the necessary seven goal differential after Ajax lost to Real Madrid 3-0 with two goals controversially ruled offside. Too perfect? Apparently so. An investigation has been launched by the French betting regulator looking into irregularities.
Bafetimbi Gomis scored four goals including the fastest hat trick in CL history. Zagreb sacked coach Krunoslav Jurcic after conceding 22 goals and scoring just three.
