    What a dramatic end to the game! After Kasper Dolberg’s early goal in the second-half, it would only take 8 minutes for LOSC Lille to equalise, courtesy of a stunning Burak Yilmaz volley.

    Both sides had plenty of opportunities to seal all three points – the main chance being from Nice substitute Khephren Thurman, who should’ve headed the ball into the back of the net from a set-piece. Both sides will be a little frustrated that they couldn’t seal a winner, but both teams stay in the top 5 of Ligue 1.
