Soccer-David at the double as Lille restore two-point lead in Ligue 1

- Jonathan David scored twice as Lille beat Nantes 2-0 away to claim their sixth consecutive victory and restore a two-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings on Sunday.

David scored early and late to put Lille on 54 points from 24 games, two ahead of Olympique Lyonnais, 3-0 winners against Racing Strasbourg on Saturday, and six ahead of third-placed Paris St Germain, who travel to Olympique de Marseille later on Sunday.

Monaco, who beat Nimes 4-3 away courtesy of an Aleksandr Golovkin hat-trick, are fourth on 48 points.

Nantes, who have now failed to win in seven games since coach Raymond Domenech took over this year and are on a 15-match winless streak since Nov. 8, are 18th on 19 points.
