ZIMBABWE international midfielder, Marshall Munetsi’s goal involvement for Stade de Reims moved to five yesterday, as he scored the opener in a 2-0 win over Tino Kadewere’s Olympique Lyon in a Ligue 1 match yesterday.  The 27-year-old Munetsi now has two goals and three assists in the opening seven matches of the French Ligue 1.

Munetsi headed home in injury time of the first half, finding the top corner from a Junya Ito cross while Yunis Abdelhamid sealed victory in the 71st minute.

With the win, moved into third place with 13 points from seven matches, just one point behind leaders Monaco.  Munetsi was provided two assists in Tuesday’s 2-1 win at Lille and continues to be influential for the ambitious Reims.

However, it is a disastrous campaign for Kadewere’s Lyon who are winless and now bottom of the 18-team league with two draws and five defeats in their seven matches to date.

Kadewere was introduced in the 68th minute for the injured Mama Balde but had a relatively quiet game.
