Victor Osimhen scores again as Lille beat Angers

Nigerian youngster Victor Osimhen scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the season as Lille claimed a 2 -1 win over Angers on Friday .

The 20 – year -old Osimhen netted the opener six minutes before half – time to move clear of Lyon’s Memphis Depay at the top of the early goalscoring charts in France .
Luiz Araujo ’ s fine individual strike in the 53 rd minute doubled the lead for last season ’ s runners -up , who held on to take their third victory of the new campaign despite a late goal from Angers forward Stephane Bahoken .

Osimhen , who scored doubles in previous home victories over Saint -Etienne and Nantes, took advantage of a dreadful error by visiting goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle to grab his goal .
Lille are now third in the fledgling table , level on points with leaders Paris Saint -Germain and second -placed Rennes .
Lyon could overtake them , though, when they visit Amiens later on Friday .

Reigning champions PSG could see Neymar feature for the first time this term after his long transfer saga when they host Strasbourg on Saturday.
