Lille make light work of Reims

Lille made it four games unbeaten at the Stade Pierre Mauroy and moved nine points clear of the bottom three thanks to a 2-0 win against 10-man Reims.
Les Dogues had to wait more than an hour to make a breakthrough, following a quiet opening 60 minutes, and it came in stunning fashion when Rony Lopes despatched a superb 20-yard free-kick beyond Johann Carrasso.
The hosts could have wrapped the points up late on when Morgan Amalfitano found Eder just a few yards out but his header was magnificently kept out by Carrasso.
Any chance of Reims comeback disappeared when Antoine Devaux was given his marching orders late on before Lille wrapped up the points thanks to Eder's tap-in.
