Memphis Depay only started on the bench for Lyon this evening, so it looked like the plan was to try and give him a few minutes towards the end of the game as some kind of farewell.
The rumours about a move to Barcelona have been circling for weeks now, and there are suggestions that the deal is pretty much done:
Barcelona will end up signing Depay – final fee €30m [add ons included as per @MikeVerweij]. The first official bid will be accepted by OL. Personal terms already agreed days ago. #MUFC never been interested in matching the bid. Koeman spoke with Memphis last week. ? #FCB https://t.co/iLtcHGhPrM

He was brought on after 55 minutes as his team were a goal and a man down away to Montpellier, and this could be his final goal for Lyon as he dispatches the penalty with powerful accuracy:

Hilton started the game for Montpellier tonight despite turning 43 recently, and this might be the most nailed on red card he’s seen in his lengthy career.
Lyon still have a few minutes to find a leveller, so can Depay go out as a hero?
