PARIS: Portugal forward Eder scored twice as Lille continued its push for a European spot with a 3-0 win at Nantes in the French league.

Lille's fourth consecutive win lifted the northern side to seventh place Sunday, five points behind third-place Rennes.

Eder, who has scored four goals in his last six matches, opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a shot past keeper Remy Riou from Rony Lopes' cross.

Stoppila Sunzu made it 2-0 in the 58th minute with a header and Eder — on loan from Swansea this season — sealed the win and its first league brace from Junio Tallo's assist in stoppage time.

Chasing a Champions League spot next season, seven-time champion Lyon aims later to climb onto the podium with a win at Lorient.
