PARIS (AP) — Adam Ounas volleyed in the winner as Lille beat Toulouse 2-1 to move up to sixth place in the French league on Saturday.

The former Napoli midfielder’s first goal for Lille came in the 53rd minute from Benjamin Andre’s clever lofted pass over the defense.

Five minutes earlier, an error from Lille’s 16-year-old central defender Leny Yoro led to Toulouse’s equalizer. He gave the ball away passing out from the back and, after fellow defender Jose Fonte failed to clear a cross from the right, forward Fares Chaibi scored from close range.

Yoro contrasted in central defense alongside the 38-year-old Fonte, who made his professional debut 20 years ago, had seven years in the English Premier League, and played 50 times for Portugal.

Just five minutes into the game, they were celebrating with teammates as Canada forward Jonathan David curled a fine shot into the top left corner with his left foot after breaking down the right.

In the other game, Montpellier midfielder Teji Savanier scored a penalty in the fifth minute of injury time to give his side a 2-1 home win against Strasbourg.

In Sunday’s games, league leader Paris Saint-Germain is at Lyon and second-placed Marseille hosts Rennes.
