New Lyon coach Alain Perrin had the perfect start with a 2-1 Trophee des Champions victory over his former club, Sochaux.

Perrin had replaced Gerard Houllier at the reins of the six-times French champions during the close season after leading Sochaux victory in the Coupe de France.

Valter Birsa put Sochaux ahead after 13 minutes only for Sidney Govou to equalise for the champions who traditionally play the Cup winners in the Trophee des Champions, the curtain-raiser for the French season. Cris then earned the spoils for Lyon with a goal just before the break.
