French foes falter again

United's Champions League opponents LOSC Lille slumped to a 1-0 defeat away to Toulouse at the weekend.

The result keeps Claude Puel's side in third place in France's Ligue 1 as their nearest challengers Marseille also lost 1-0 to Bordeaux.

Lille have now failed to score in their last three games and have the daunting task of a visit from the runaway league leaders Lyon on Friday evening, before United travel to France for the first leg on Tuesday 20 February.

Lyon are also on Champions League duty next week when they face Roma away.

Tickets for the crucial home leg against Lille on Wednesday 7 March are being sold online - for the latest availability and prices, please read the story in Ticket News.
