Lille enjoyed a mesmerising away victory against Bordeaux at the Matmut Atlantique Stadiums on Wednesday. Bordeaux were looking to pick up points after winning last match. Lille, on the other hand, had managed to pick up a single point in their encounter with Lyon. As the table looks today, Bordeaux and Lille currently occupy 17th and 8th spots in the league, with 17 points and 28 points respectively after 19 matches.

Bordeaux found the net first, with Alberth Elis giving Bordeaux the lead, 17 minutes in. However, their lead didn’t last for long, Benjamin Andre producing an equaliser, at 33 minutes, bringing Lille level. Les Girondins managed to edge ahead with a 2nd effort from Alberth Elis just before half-time to see out the first half 2-1.

Lille continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Burak Yilmaz finding the net at the 77 minute mark. Les Dogues then netted once more and turned the match thanks to a goal from Jonathan David at the 84 minute mark with a final score of 3-2.

For Bordeaux, Otavio, Gideon Mensah, Mbaye Niang, Samuel Kalu and Jimmy Briand, came on for Jean Onana, Hwang Ui-Jo, Ricardo Mangas, Javairo Dilrosun and Fransergio.
