Lyon's poor defending surfaces again in 2-2 draw at Lille

PARIS (AP) With top scorer Nabil Fekir starting on the bench, Bertrand Traore scored twice for fourth-placed Lyon in a 2-2 draw at Lille in the French league on Sunday.

The Burkina Faso winger put Lyon 2-0 up at halftime, taking his season's league tally to six since joining from Premier League Chelsea this season. Traore caused Lille problems with his pace and skill before Lyon's poor defense once again let the team down.

Striker Nicolas Pepe scored midway through the second half and 17th-placed Lille equalized in the 81st minute through Brazilian forward Luiz Araujo's powerful low strike from 25 meters out, following a well-worked corner.
