Trabzonspor Vs. Lille, 2011 Champions League: Lille Blow Another Late Lead In 1-1 Draw

If Lille want to qualify from a group that features Inter Milan and CSKA Moscow, they're going to have to get out of the habit of blowing leads late in the game. Two weeks ago, they were cruising against CSKA only to see the Russians claw their way back from a two-goal deficit and here the French champions managed to concede a late penalty in Turkey to drop two points against Trabzonspor.

That's not to say that Lille deserved to win - the game was pretty dull and chances were hard to come by, but they definitely came close to escaping with all three points after an angled effort from Moussa Sow found the back of Tolga Zengin's net on the half hour mark. 1-0 would stand until the 75th minute, when a handball by Thieu Debuchy meant a penalty for the hosts, with Gustavo Coleman tucking the spot-kick away to earn a draw - and put the SuperLig outfit into top spot in Group B.
