Osimhen charges Lille to keep Champions League hopes alive

Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen is determined to help Lille OSC secure qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

He stated his desire to help the Ligue 1 outfit secure a spot in Europe’s most prestigious competition after their 1-0 win over Nantes on Sunday.

“For me, I think its is very important to get all three points because we have to keep our Champions League hopes alive” Osimhen told Ojbsports.

“Coming to Nantes to win is not an easy thing to do because they have a very good and organised team. We gave our all and the win is what is important.

Lille OSC currently sit fourth on the table with forty six (46) points from twenty seven (27) matches, just one point behind Rennes who currently occupy the final Champions League qualifiers spot.

Osimhen’s confidence stems from his impressive form in front of goal, having amassed a total of thirteen (13) goals and five (5) assists in twenty six (26) appearances this season.

Christophe Galtier’s men will hope to secure a win when they host fifth placed Lyon on Sunday.
