Lille 0-1 Montpellier: Stunning Laurent Pionnier shuts out Ligue 1 champions

Ligue 1 champions Lille suffered their major setback of the new campaign as they were defeated 1-0 at home by stuffy Montpellier, who would be grateful to goalkeeper Laurent Pionnier for the three points.

Rudi Garcia’s side have now gone 10 matches in August without a victory, and their defeat on Sunday night would be inflicted by a smartly taken goal by Olivier Giroud midway through the second period.

The story is too old to be commented.
