Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen missed a late penalty but Lille held to beat Montpellier in the French Ligue 1 on Friday night.
Osimhen who was on target in last week against Brest was on parade for the entire duration of the game after he missed out of Wednesday’s Champions League defeat to Chelsea.
The 20-year-old forward won a penalty that was converted by Jonathan Ikone in the 40th minute to put the Christopher Galtier’men ahead.
Montpellier draw level in 69 minutes of the game, thanks to Andy Delort who scored with a fantastic strike.
Lille regained the lead in the 84th minute, former Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches was the scorer and sealed the win for Lille.
There was still time for the third when Lille were awarded a 90th-minute penalty, but Osimhen who has 100 percent records for Club and Country from six-yard failed to convert the penalty this time.
Lille has now won four consecutive Ligue 1 games this season and are third on 31 points in the league table.
