David scores as Lille wins 1-0 to stay level with leader PSGPTI | Paris | Updated: 25-01-2021 09:20 IST | Created: 25-01-2021 09:20 IST
David made a sharp run behind the Rennes defense midway through the first half and was awarded a penalty after being knocked over by defender Nayef Aguerd.
The home side threatened little after the break and it was a comfortable win for Lille, which trails defending champion PSG on goal difference after 21 rounds.
Rennes midfielder Clement Grenier made a strong claim about Wattellier's attitude after the match.
“He speaks out of turn, says aggressive things during the game,” Grenier told broadcaster Canal Plus. “Throughout the match he's telling me that he'll referee against us.” In Sunday's late match, third-place Lyon made the short trip to face local rival Saint-Etienne.
Also, Reims beat Brest 1-0, while Dijon and Strasbourg played to a 1-1 draw.
PSG routed Montpellier 4-0 at home on Friday with Kylian Mbappe scoring twice.
