Lacazette scored in the second minute of additional time for Lyon against Serie A outfit Roma.
The French international’s goal could end up proving vital if Lyon qualify for the quarter-final stages as it resulted in a 4-2 victory, giving the home side a comfortable cushion going into the return-leg.
