P.Ours was this 12th day of Ligue 1, Lyon and Lens won. OL won their first victory of the season at Rennes (1-0) but still remained last in Ligue 1 on Sunday while Lens won their clash against Marseille (1-0) at the last minute of regulation time.
A second time before the match, after the 5-minute exclusion of the Breton defense, Guéla Doué committed a foul on Nicolas Tagliafico, OL gave in under Breton domination but ended up winning. Ireland’s central defense is Jake O’Brien, marked but winner, and pressed Rennes (13th), who have lost four of their last matches in L1.
Lens pushed Marseille by winning with a header from Jonathan Gradit’s corner at the end of a match which did not keep its promises. The “Sang et Or”, rather dominant, moved up to sixth place and OM stagnated at tenth.
The Marseillais have a late match to play on December 6 against Lyon, a match which could not be played on October 29 after the Rhodaniens’ cars were stoned. OL are not leaving the bottom of the rankings but are four points behind the play-off place, occupied by Lorient, and five from remaining.
The points of Lyon and Clermont are also revealed, with a last victory of the season against Lorient (1-0), with a penalty from the Jamaican Shamar Nicholson.
Lille passes Reims
The Auvergnats remain penultimate, two lengths behind their victim of the day (16th) and two ahead of OL. Metz left the play-off position by offering its first victory against Nantes (3-1) since September 16, including the first goals in Ligue 1 from Algerian international Kevin van den Kerkhof and Simon Elisor.
For the « Canaries », Moses Simon essentially equalized but did not prevent his team’s third consecutive defeat, aggravated by a new goal scored by the Swede Joel Asoro.
In the premier category, Lille ranked 4th in Ligue 1 in tenth place against Toulouse (1-1). But Leny Yoro, 17-year-old defender, appealed to the Espoirs Thierry Henry selection, an authorization from the Lille “Dogues” to overtake Reims (5th), beaten on Saturday to the new leader, Paris Saint-Germain (3- 0 ), on a triple from Kylian Mbappé.
After the feat against Liverpool (3-2) in the Europa League, the “Violets” matched their man in the person of Thijs Dallinga. The Dutchman, who only scored one goal in the first six days, has since scored three in the European Cup and four in L1.
