Twenty minutes later, Mali international Moussa Doumbia opened the scoring from the penalty spot after he was fouled by captain Jose Fonte.

The 25-year-old sent goalkeeper Mike Maignan the wrong way for his first goal of the season. David Guion’s men sealed victory thanks to Remi Oudin’s late header.

Lille now sit in ninth position with six points while Reims are placed sixth. The former team hosts Angers SCO in their next game on September 13.
