MATCH REPORT: Benetton snatched their first win in Pool 1 of the Champions Cup after Marco Lazzaroni’s dramatic try edged them to a thrilling 25-22 win over Lyon in Treviso.

Lyon were moving towards their second victory in this season’s competition as they led 22-18 after a see-saw struggle but replacement Lazzaroni proved to be the unlikely hero as he finished off a neat move to score under the posts and Antonio Rizzi’s conversion eight minutes from time proved decisive.

Winless Benetton had made a near perfect start as they notched two tries in the opening 14 minutes to build up a 12-0 lead.

Wing Leonard Sato went over first after a smart inside ball from Denaldt Duvenage before Australian wing Monty Ioane supported a break from Luca Morisi to sprint over and Ian Keatley converted.

Lyon finally got into gear and were ahead by half-time as first flank Liam Kill plunged over from a driving maul and six minutes later former All Black centre Rudi Wulf showed his power to cross with flyhalf Patricio Fernandez adding both conversions.

Lyon centre Pierre-Louis Barassi looked to have settled it 15 minutes from time when he powered over wideout and the conversion give them a four-point buffer but the battling Italian outfit were not to be denied.

Benetton travel to Northampton next on Sunday, January 12 while Lyon visit Leinster on the same day.
