Lille 2-1 Montpellier: Osimhen misses penalty

Victor Osimhen failed to score his 10th Ligue 1 goal as he missed a 90th-minute penalty in Lille's 2-1 victory over Montpellier.

The Nigeria international had the chance to make it 3-1 for his club but failed to find the back of the net on Friday night.

He had a hand in Lille’s first goal as he was fouled inside the box which led to a penalty that was converted by Jonathan Ikone in the 40th minute.

Montpellier drew level, thanks to Andy Delort who scored with 16 minutes remaining in the game.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches then scored what was the winner in the 84th minute to record Lille's four consecutive Ligue 1 win.

Lille are now third on 31 points in the league table.
