Dive denies Strasbourg, Mandanda delivers first career assist

League Round 1: Lille move up to sixth with a win over Toulouse

PARIS (AP) – Adam Ounas volleyed in the winner as Lille beat Toulouse 2-1 to move up to sixth in the French league on Saturday.

The former Napoli midfielder’s first goal for Lille came in the 53rd minute from Benjamin Andre’s brilliant pass.

Five minutes earlier, a mistake from Lille’s 16-year-old central defender Lenny Euro led Toulouse to equalise. He fed the ball in from behind and after fellow defender Jose Fonte failed to clear a cross from the right, forward Chibi scored from close range.

Euro contrasts with Font, 38, in central defense, who made his professional debut 20 years ago, played seven years in the English Premier League, and played 50 times for Portugal.

Just five minutes into the game, they celebrated with teammates as Canadian forward Jonathan David fired a fine shot into the top left corner with his left foot after breaking his right leg.

In another match, Montpellier midfielder Teji Savanier scored a penalty in the fifth minute of injury time to secure a 2–1 home win over Strasbourg.

In Sunday’s games, league leaders Paris Saint-Germain are at Lyon and second-placed Marseille host Rennes.
