Tinotenda Kadewere’s Olympique Lyonnais were held to a 1-1 draw by Marshall Munetsi’s Stade de Reims in the French Ligue 1 on Friday.
Kadewere was introduced as a second-half substitute (46′) for Rayan Cherki and scored the equaliser deep into stoppage time from a Memphis Depay cross.
Reims had deservedly taken the lead after 33 minutes when Mathieu Cafaro unleashed a fine half-volley that flew under the crossbar.
Munetsi played the entire 90 minutes, sitting in front of Rheims’s back four in coach David Guion’s 4-1-4-1 formation.
Lyon, who extended their unbeaten run away from home to 13 games, will see fourth-placed Monaco move within two points of them if the principality side wins on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Paris St Germain who are also on 60 points as Lyon, albeit with a superior goal difference, welcome Nantes and league leaders Lille, who are on 62 points travel to Monaco on Sunday.
In a social media post after the match, Munetsi wrote “Points shared in 1-1 draw, [Zimbabwe] the winner and it was good to see my brother Tino Kadewere”.
Kadewere wrote: “10 goals and counting! What a match it was, playing against my brother Marshall Munetsi and sharing spoils… ”
