Memphis Depay Produces Insane 35 Yard Nutmeg Goal Against Monaco

Memphis Depay Produces Insane 35 Yard Nutmeg Goal Against Monaco

Memphis Depay produced a crazy 35 yard nutmeg goal in Lyon's opening Ligue 1 match against Monaco on Friday night.

The Dutch forward picks up the ball in the centre of the park and lets rip at the Monaco goal.

Unfortunately for keeper Benjamin Lecomte, he opens his legs and embarrassingly lets the former Manchester United man's drive go straight between his legs.

Check out the strike below.

Depay remains relatively unmarked leading up to the goal, perhaps hinting that Monaco's defence were encouraging the 25-year-old to have a whack from range.

It could be argued that the swerve of the strike puts the keeper off but he should surely be doing better from that range

Memphis' thunderbolt came just five minutes after another talking point of the Ligue 1 opener.

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas saw himself sent off thirty minutes into the game, after a VAR decision changed his yellow card turn into a dismissal.

The former Chelsea midfielder found himself booked for the offence, but a Video Assistant Referee ruling saw the 32-year-old's yellow changed to a straight red.

Monaco went on to lose the game 3-0, with Lucas Tousart adding to Depay's screamer and Moussa Dembele's opener.

Lyon will be hoping to maintain this form going forward into the new season following the losses of Tanguy Ndombele & Nabil Fekir to Tottenham Hotspur & Real Betis respectively.

Whether Depay actually meant the audacious nutmeg is a mystery.

Regardless of if he meant it or not, it is still an incredible piece of skill despite the dubious goalkeeping.

Do you think Depay intended on nutmegging the goalkeeper? Sound off in the comments below.
