Osimhen scores as Lille bow to Olympique Marseille

Victor Osimhen found the net as Lille surrendered a goal lead to lose 2-1 to Olympique Marseille in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash.

Despite his injury in the Great Danes’ win at Angers, Osimhen was handed a starter’s role in the hard-hitting encounter.

After a goalless first half inside Stade Pierre-Mauroy, the Nigeria international gave Christophe Galtier’s men a 51st minute lead.

The 21-year-old beat goalkeeper Steve Mandanda after controlling a defence-splitting pass from Jonathan Bamba.
