Ligue 1 Football Results – Lille Beat Marseille 2-0 Due to David’s Brace
The reigning champions of France made a strong start to the game. They created a multitude of problems for their opponents, particularly in wide areas.
An early opportunity presented itself when Jonathan Bamba found Jonathan Ikoné, who could only sting the palms of Pau López.
Then, Jonathan David squared the ball to Burak Yılmaz but he too, sent a good chance over the bar.
The home side took a deserved lead eventually 28 minutes into the game. This was when David scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the season.
Yılmaz thought he’d added a second goal minutes before the half time break, but it was ruled out for offside.
Doomed to follow an unbeaten start to the season with back-to-back losses, Marseille’s afternoon went from bad to worse.
Cengiz Ünder suffered a second yellow card and had to exit the pitch with 15 minutes remaining on the clock. This brought down Marseille to ten men only, in the ending moments of the match.
Lacking the influential Dimitri Payet, the visitors offered little threat all afternoon.
And they conceded again through a Timothy Weah’s pass to Jonathan David. The Canadian doubled the score claiming a 2-0 victory over ‘The Olympians’.
