Yoann Gourcuff scored a wondergoal for Lyon in the Europa League against Real Betis on Thursday night—only for it to be disallowed.


It appears Bafetimbi Gomis was fouled moments before Gourcuff's staggering long-range effort.

Correct decision or not, it was cruel to see a moment of magic like that not rewarded with a goal.


At least Lyon could console themselves with winning the game 1-0.
