Victor Osimhen recorded an assist in Lille’s victory over  Olympic Lyon at the Groupama Stadium on Tuesday night.

Lille’s top scorer Osimhen turned the provider as he set Jonathan Ikone to score the only goal of the game in the 68th minute and the Club secured their first away win of the season.


The Nigeria international, who played the entire duration of the game, has been involved in 11 goals (8 goals and 3 assists) in 15 league appearances for Les Dogues.


Lille thus climbed to fourth spot in the league courtesy of the win and they will host Brest in their next league game on Friday.
