Nicolas Pepe (L) celebrates after scoring during Lille’s 3-1 win at Caen

Lille consolidated second spot in Ligue 1 by bouncing back from last weekend’s surprise defeat to Toulouse with a 3-1 win at Caen – despite finishing the fixture with 10 men.

Nicolas Pepe moved on to 13 goals for the season, with five of those coming in his last six outings, when he headed home from Thiago Mendes’ ball into the area in the ninth minute.

Rafael Leao latched on to a through ball to double the visitors’ advantage in the 21st minute and that was the way it remained until the closing stages.
