Lille is still picking up
Losc continues to get back into the race for Europe, falling this Saturday from Toulouse (0-2).
Admittedly hampered these last two days by Lens (1-1) and Lyon (3-3), Lille nevertheless remains one of the rising stars of the end of the season. This Saturday in Toulouse, as part of the 28e day of Ligue 1, the Mastiffs knew how to make the difference on the wire (0-1) to assert themselves in the race for Europe. At the expense of Stade Rennais in particular.
Sometimes jostled by a TFC who had just returned to victory against Angers, after three losses in a row, the Lille residents waited for their time to surprise their valiant hosts. It was on a corner following an error of refereeing that Losc struck the blow, finding the fault on a header stung by Alexsandro (0-1, 86e). Bayo, in added time, having doubled the lead with a powerfully concluded counterattack (0-2, 90e+11) – this in the wake of a saving parade by Chevalier at the antipodes of the field.

Lille for its part grapples, temporarily overtaking Rennes, visiting the Parc des Princes on Sunday, and returning to two lengths from Monaco, the fourth in the classification expected for its part in Ajaccio.
