In Lille the good deal


By: Manu Tournoux

Losc got the better of Stade de Reims this Saturday as part of the 24th day of Ligue 1 (0-1).

Connected to alternating current in recent weeks, surprised in Toulouse last week, Lille found the path to victory in Reims this Saturday, on behalf of the 24e championship act. A narrow success (0-1) which is more than enough for the happiness of the Mastiffs, fourth on the edge of the podium.

The scenario for the Champenois is infuriating, the Northerners having made the difference on a ball from Abdelhamid before the hour mark (56e) – an ill-adjusted back pass for Diouf which David, the Lille striker, took advantage of without hesitation, with his 12 as the keye goal of the season in Ligue 1 (only Mbappé, with 21 goals, does better).

The C1 still in the viewfinder

With this result, Losc is one step behind third place held by Monaco, which on Friday evening neutralized PSG (0-0) – Nice could still insert itself between the two teams in the event of a victory in Toulouse on Sunday. The Rémois, on the other hand, are stagnating in eighth position, seven lengths behind their opponents of the day.

Lille residents who are contenders for greater Europe who will have to fight in the coming weeks to confirm their status. With a copious menu of Rennes, Brest, Lens, Marseille and Monaco consecutively. Without forgetting Sturm Graz – or even more – in the Europa League.
