Après OL - DFCO : Martin Terrier buteur éclair
The Lyon striker scored the fastest goal in Groupama Stadium history and now ranks eighth-fastest all time in Ligue 1 Conforama.

Thirty seven seconds. That's the exact amount of time it took Martin Terrier to open the score Saturday against Dijon, making it the fastest goal in Groupama Stadium history n official competitions. Before this record, OL hadn't scored inside the first minute of a Ligue 1 Conforama game since 1997 - the year Terrier was born. On Saturday evening, the French U21 international was the only Lyon player to break through Dijon's defense, despite the 27 shots in a disappointing 3-1 loss. 

The Hauts-de-France native has now scored the eighth-fastest goal in French football history, behind a certain Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who opened the scoring after 26 seconds. The all-time record belongs to  Michel Rio, who scored after only eight seconds.
