PARIS (Paris) — Lille has climbed to the top of the Ligue 1 standings after scoring an equalizer in the second half in Nantes on Friday after a difficult match.Lille went into the game on the back foot of a 4-1 win over Auxerre in last weeks first round, but when Moses Simon struck for the home side in the 27th minute, tucking in from close range, the club was put in the game.Nantes was held to a frustrating goalless draw at Angers on the first weekend of the season, but they did look to be securing their first victory of the season by defeating some aggressive Lille attacks.The visitors, who finished a disappointing 10th place last season, got their reward about fifteen minutes before half-time, however, when Canadian striker Jonathan David provided the assist for Brazilian defender Ismaily.

We will see how to use him, Tudor said, adding that Sanchez was unlikely to begin.He hasn't had any matches in preparation, so it would take a little bit of time, according to the Croat.He won't be at his peak right now, but it will happen.He will be fine in about a month or two.

I'm happy with what I've seen.He's a strong boy.Following last weekends Festival Interceltique music festival, the match between Lorient and Lyon was called off due to the poor quality of the Brittany outfits pitch, whose impact was amplified by the scorching, dry weather.
