PARIS (AP) -- Lille continued its recovery under new coach Frederic Antonetti with a third consecutive win in the French league on Saturday, beating Lorient 3-0.
Eric Bautheac scored twice -- his first goals this season -- in a victory that lifted the northern club to 11th place in the standings. Djibril Sidibe completed the win with a late goal.
Lille hired Antonetti last month as a replacement for former Ivory Coast manager Herve Renard, who was sacked following a poor run.
