The Ivory Coast international struck a left-footed strike from outside of the box to give his side the lead against the Premier League outfit.

The French side played a long ball over the top to Karl Toko Ekambi with Eric Garcia sliding in to intercept.

Though the ball landed straight to Cornet who sneaked in a curling effort into the bottom corner.

Needless to say, Cornet's fourth goal in three matches against City sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "Ekambi's shielding is beautiful for Cornet to slot it home."

A second tweeted: "Lovely goal."

A third added: "What a finish."

Lyon went onto beat Man City 3-1 to book a place in this season's Champions League semi-final.

The French side now face Bayern Munich for a place in the final.
