Leader Lille wins at Metz 2-0 to move 6 points ahead of PSG

PARIS - French league leader Lille won at Metz 2-0 on Friday to move six points ahead of title rival Paris Saint-Germain. Lille was indebted to goalkeeper Mike Maignan, who stopped an early penalty from Metz forward Aaron Leya Iseka and made two other key saves before Lille scored through Burak Yilmaz in the 59th minute. The veteran Turkey striker latched onto a fine pass from attacking midfielder Renato Sanches and slammed a shot into the top right corner for his 10th league goal.
