​Lyon hitman Memphis Depay came up with an unbelievably insane 35 yard nutmeg goal in his team's opening Ligue 1 match against Monaco on Friday night.


The former ​Manchester United ​misfit picked up the ball in the centre of the field and slams in a shot at Monaco's goal. Unfortunately for goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte, his positioning was uncertain and he embarrassingly let the former Manchester United man's strike go straight between his legs.


Here's the video of the strike:



Absolutely no pressure was put on Depay before he attempted that shot, more like Monaco were inviting him to take on the shot from range and well, they paid the price.


While it could be said that the swerve on the ball could have caught the goalkeeper off-guard but there is no doubt that Depay's attempt was saveable.


Depay's goal came just five minutes after Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas was shown the red card half hour into the game, after a VAR decision changed his yellow card turn into a dismissal.


Lyon forward Leo Dubois saw himself one on one with Lecomte but Fabregas gave the Frenchman's shirt a tug leading to a foul.


Footage also showed his boot digging straight into the back of the attackers leg.


The former ​Chelsea midfielder found himself booked for the offence, but a Video Assistant Referee ruling saw the 32-year-old's yellow changed to a straight red. Monaco went on to lose the game 3-0, with Lucas Tousart adding to Depay's screamer and Moussa Dembele's opener.
