Ex Spurs & Man United man Dimitar Berbatov got two assists & the winner for Monaco at Lyon [Video]
- March 16, 2014
Dimitar Berbatov and Monaco always felt like a good fit, and so it’s proving to be.
The former Tottenham, Manchester United and Fulham striker had a marvelous Sunday for the Principality as the Bulgarian star grabbed two assists and scored the winner in a five goal thriller at Lyon.
Berbatov laid on passes for Valere Germain and James Rodriguez to fire Monaco into a 2-goal lead, but Lyon got a foothold in the game when Jimmy Briad pulled a goal back just after the half hour.
Berbatov then restored Monaco’s two goal advantage after the break when the former Spurs and Man Unite dman showed uncharacteristic pace to sprint behind the Lyon defence and finish.
Briand got another goal back for Lyon, but Monaco held on for the win.
Berbatov’s excellent performance came a week after the Bulgarian starred in a win over Sochaux last weekend.
