The Lille stood as new interim leader of the French League, awaiting the match between Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier this Saturday, after drawing 1-1 this Friday on their visit to the Nantes.
A meeting in which the “bulldogs”who on the first matchday won a clear 4-1 against Auxerre, they lacked the lack of effectiveness that they showed last week in their league premiere.
Especially in the first half in which the players of the Portuguese Paulo Fonseca insisted on crashing again and again with the young local goalkeeper Alban Lafont.
Errors that condemned Lille to leave at a disadvantage to neglectafter seeing Nigerian striker Moses Simon, who had hit the post a few minutes earlier, put Nantes ahead (1-0) on the scoreboard.
A result that increased the visitors’ dominance in a second half in which Lille were unable to beat an inspired Lafont until fourteen minutes from time, when the Brazilian defender Ismaily established the 1-1 when finishing off a pass from Canadian Jonathan David to the nets.
A tie that did not placate the ambition of those of Fonseca, who despite their efforts, had to settle for a tie that does not seem enough for the “dogos” to finish the day in first place in the classification.
