Osimhen provided five shots, 27 touches, 11 passes and a passing accuracy of 72.7% to account for his contribution inside Stade Pierre-Mauroy, although he was cautioned by referee Thomas Leonard in the 40th minute.
For the visitors, Guinea’s Issiaga Sylla and Cote d’Ivoire’s Ibrahim Sangare featured from start to finish for Denis Zanko’s team, while captain Max Gradel was replaced by Quentin Boisgard in the 71st minute.
Thanks to this win, Lille climbed to third in the French topflight log with 43 points from 26 outings – two points above fourth-placed Rennes.
They are guests of Nantes in their next outing on March 1. There, their Nigerian import would be eyeing his 14th league goal of the season.
