Having fired blanks in the Great Danes’ 1-0 away win at Olympique Lyon, He rediscovered his scoring form to power his side to victory.
His 16th-minute effort worked the magic for Christophe Galtier’s men after converting a fine pass from Jonathan Ikone.
Lille could have added a second of the game but Jonathan Bamba had his penalty saved by goalkeeper Gautier Larsonneurin the closing stages of the fixture.
Victory for Galtier’s side is a massive big boost ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Chelsea.
