Troyes' Niane leaves Lille keeper standing with a surprise volley in the sides Ligue 1 encounter on Saturday

Who said that a volley must be beautiful to be efficient? Troyes' Niane just proved the exact opposite tonight against Lille. The striker's volley may not be the most beautiful thing you'll see today but Lille's keeper, Maignan, was absolutely unable to do anything to stop it. It gave the hosts a lead that have never been threatened by the visitors. Troyes seats on the 15th spot before Sunday games and counts a two-points lead on their opponents of the night.
