Clement Grenier: 'My penalty miss cost Lyon'

Clement Grenier admits that he is to blame for Lyon's defeat to Reims on Saturday after his penalty miss.

Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier feels that his penalty miss against Reims on Saturday was crucial in the game's outcome.

Les Gones endured a surprising 1-0 defeat to Reims at the Stade de Gerland at the weekend following Odair Fortes's second-half winner.

Grenier had been given the chance to open the scoring from the spot earlier in the half, and he feels that his error cost Lyon a point.

"My penalty miss was the turning point of the match," Grenier told reporters.

"Despite losing at home, it is only at the beginning season and we have a return match Wednesday in the Champions League [against Real Sociedad].

"We cannot talk about a nightmare start to the season right now and we will recover."

Lyon will be looking to overturn a two-goal deficit when they face Sociedad in the return leg of their Champions League qualifier.
