Vincent Enyeama and his Lille teammates have reached the final of the Coupe de la Ligue for the first time as they beat Bordeaux 5-1 on Tuesday to end their recent run of poor form.
Goals from Yassine Benzia, Adama Soumaoro, Eric Bautheac and Sofiane Boufal, plus a Ludovic Sane own goal, gave Lille a memorable win at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Benzia netted the first goal inside 10 minutes with his first of the competition.
Bordeaux were briefly level through Clement Chantome before a Sane own goal and Soumaoro gave Lille a two-goal advantage at the break.
The impressive Bautheac added a fourth just before the hour with an audacious flick from Sebastien Corchia’s right-wing cross.
Bordeaux were unable to come back from three goals behind as Lille – who added a late fifth through Boufal – comfortably held on to reach the final, where they will meet either Paris Saint-Germain or Toulouse.
Enyeama will now have to wait for their final opponent between PSG and Toulouse
