Will Lille do it again ten years later? French champion in 2011 including Eden Hazard, Moussa Sow and Rio Mavuba, the northern squad will hang on to its leader’s chair as long as possible. After recovering first place on Sunday thanks to his success against Dijon (1-0) combined with the defeat of PSG in Lorient (3-2), Christophe Galtier’s men confirmed their strength and efficiency in the winning this Wednesday in Bordeaux (0-3) in the first 5 matches of this 23rd day.
This 15th success in the league – the 5th in a row – allows Lille to put pressure on its main opponents by now respectively 5 points ahead of Lyon and 6 over PSG. Lyon and PSG who face the last two (Dijon and Nîmes) at 9 p.m. have no right to make mistakes under penalty of letting the leader escape.
5th success in a row away from home
Faced with a Bordeaux in clear regain of form (3 wins, a draw and a defeat) despite its setback in Lyon last Friday at the last minute, the Lille have shown patience. After a balanced first act, Galtier’s men made the difference in 12 minutes. Jonathan Bamba wins his duel with Paul Baysse before crossing back for the Turkish Yusuf Yasici who opens the scoring with a shot in the skylight (0-1, 54th). It is then Luiz Araujo who makes a race of 40 meters then serves on a plate the ex-Parisian Timothy Weah in the empty goal (0-2). The Belgian Jonathan David adds more at the end of the game (0-3, 89th).
Thanks to this 5th success in a row away from home, its best away series in the same season in the elite since December 2018-February 2019, the Losc can think big during this second part of the season.
