The Dutchman missed Lyon’s win over Roma on Thursday but returned to the starting line-up for the home tie against Toulouse on Sunday.

Memphis had a quiet first half as Christophe Jallet opened the scoring for the hosts but in the second half he exploded into life. Memphis played a part as Maxwell Cornet made it 2-0 and the attacker then got himself on the scoresheet with a shot from an acute angle on 53 minutes.

Memphis then missed a great chance before he stunned the crowd with a fantastic long-range goal. After receiving the ball just inside the Toulouse half, Memphis spinned away from his marker before firing the ball over the despairing Anthony Lopes and into the net.

The double means Memphis has now scored five goals and added three assists in nine league games for Lyon.
