LILLE, France (AP) — Victor Osimhen’s ninth goal of the season powered Lille to a 1-0 win over Brest on Friday, lifting his team to third in the French league.
The 20-year-old Nigerian gave Lille the lead in the 17th minute, but Lille couldn’t score a second goal despite dominating the game with 10 shots on target to Brest’s one.
Osimhen’s nine goals in the league place him behind only the 10 each of Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
Lille’s third straight win moved the team from northern France to eight points behind leader Paris Saint-Germain and three off second-placed Marseille. Brest was 12th.
