PARIS (REUTERS) - Third from bottom Sochaux staged a spectacular comeback on Friday, scoring three goals in the last 11 minutes to earn a 3-3 Ligue 1 draw and dent Lille's chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Two goals from Salomon Kalou and one by Marko Basa put the home team 3-0 up inside 48 minutes.

Lille, the 2011 champions, were then booed off the pitch after Sochaux hit back with a double from Vincent Nogueira and a goal by Cedric Kante - all three efforts coming from free kicks.

"We just gave them an opportunity to come back," Lille right back Laurent Bonnart told the beIN Sport television channel.
