Lens-Seville: what result to be transferred to the Europa League?


By: Manu Tournoux

RC Lens plays its European future this Tuesday evening, against Sevilla FC (6:45 p.m.).

Well placed in third place in its group, Racing Club de Lens is entering a decisive match for its European campaign, this Tuesday evening. When the Sang et Or were still undefeated after three days, this shock against Seville could be compared to a final with a view to qualifying for the eighth. A few weeks and two defeats later, it represents only one step towards being transferred to the Europa League.

And with this in mind, only one scenario can allow Lensois to achieve their objective: not losing against the last winner of the Europa League. A mission on the ropes for the vice-champions of France, who had won a draw in Andalusia in the first leg (1-1).

I don’t know if the opportunity is too good, said Franck Haise. I know the results of this team which is going through a difficult time. What interests me is my group, my players, that we take this match head on. Let us play it with all our energy, our confidence. To do this run of ten league games without defeat, even if I am demanding of them, what they are doing is remarkable “.
