Lille Beat Monaco To Slash PSG’s Lead To Two Points

 


Yusuf Yazici scored what proved to be the winner as Lille beat fellow title hopefuls Monaco 2-1 on Sunday to retake second place in Ligue 1 and increase the pressure on leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Christophe Galtier’s men dug deep at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to end Monaco’s four-match winning streak and move back to two points behind reigning champions PSG.

Marseille are two points further back in third, but have two games in hand.

“This result is important because we were facing a direct competitor and we hadn’t won much recently,” said Lille coach Galtier.
