Lille hosted Marseille in the top of the table clash and it was Osimhen who broke the deadlock in the 56th minute of the game after a goalless first half.
But Lille was unable to hold on to the lead as Marseille rallied back with two goals from Germain 62nd and Benedetto 67th minute.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria striker feels disappointed after the game and believed they should have been victorious if all the chances created were converted.
“The result is very hard this evening even more considering the script. ”
“We missed a few things and when you play against an organized team like Marseille is, you cannot make mistakes if not you are punished”, he said
