It was probably the last complicated trip for LOSC this season. Without Benjamin André, one of his leaders in the field, the leader of Ligue 1 went this Friday evening to open the 36th day in Lens, his neighbor, who still has a European qualification in his sights. The Sang-et-Or presented themselves with a knife between their teeth, pushed by their supporters present in numbers on the edge of the roads leading to Bollaert, determined to end this series of 14 years without a win at home. Despite the returns of Badé, Kakuta and Leca in the eleven, the meeting started badly for the Lensois. From the second minute, Bamba collapsed following a very light contact from Fofana. Yilmaz and the Mastiffs did not ask for so much and took advantage of the offering (0-1, 4th). However, the premises did not demobilize and managed to slowly gain the upper hand in the game but a game fact condemned them with the second severe yellow for Michelin, too virulent in an aerial duel with Celik (35th).
At eleven against ten, Lille killed the meeting even before half-time. Decidedly on another planet, Yilmaz took the ball within 30 meters, refocused on his left foot to eliminate Doucouré and send a remote-controlled missile into the skylight of an impassive Leca (0-2, 40th). The second period will only be a long ordeal for Racing. Outnumbered and led by two goals, they suffered like the attempts of Araujo (55th, 56th) and Botman (58th). Leca ended up cracking again, badly repelling a strike from Bamba, which benefited Jonathan David (0-3, 60 ‘). Lens tried to react with Ganago (62nd) or Fofana (84th) but the score of 3-0 did not budge. The operation is bad for the Sang-et-Or who lose 5th place to the benefit of OM, while LOSC takes a big step closer to the title in Ligue 1 with its 4 points ahead of PSG .
