Lille’s Victor Osimhen got his seventh league goal of the season as his club were held to a 2-2 draw by Nimes in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash
The Great Danes were on the cusp of defeat before the Nigerian found target to rescue a point against the Crocodiles
Osimhen came into this encounter after his first Champions League strike in Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
Against the Crocodiles, he continued his fine goal scoring form to help Christophe Galtier’s men preserve their unbeaten home run.
Loicy Remy put Lille ahead in the 12th minute after scoring from a second attempt when goalkeeper Paul Bernardoni had saved his first strike.
Renaud Ripart equalised for Nimes on the stroke of half time after sending Bernardoni the wrong way from the penalty mark.
The visitors took the lead in the 71st minute after Togo international Kevin Denkey converted a low cross from Ripart.
Following that strike, the teenager is tied on three goals with Jadon Sancho as the highest-scoring player under 20 years of age in Europe’s major league so far.
The former Royal Excel Muscron striker was voted the man of the match for his effort in the game.
