Montpellier loses to Lille as Germain sees red; Monaco wins


PARIS (AP) — Canada forward Jonathan David has scored twice as Lille won 3-1 at 10-man Montpellier in the French league. The turning point came deep in added time of the first half when Montpellier striker Valere Germain received a straight red card for a reckless foul from behind on Adam Ounas. Already struggling with 11 players Montpellier was undone by the sending off and conceded two second-half goals. Breel Embolo scored the only goal in a match of few chances as Monaco got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win at local rival Nice in the Riviera derby.
