While he had refueled at home from the start of the season, Losc remained silent against Strasbourg (0-0) on Friday, opening the 13th day. However, temporarily occupies the second place.
The match: 0-0
the series "They are made to stop", Thierry Laurey repeated this week, but if Strasbourg (7th) had come to Lille "To bring back something" Friday, they may consider themselves lucky to have taken a point. The Losc hit the field 15 times in the first half (22 in all), when the races, mostly huddled in their field, were mostly happy with (well) to defend.
The debates were balanced in the second part, but it is the Dogues who feed the most regrets, those who did not lose points at home this season. Their clumsiness will have cost them dear (eight shots only on the objectives), but we must also say that they fell on a great goalkeeper, Matz Sels, author of two decisive stages before Xeka (73rd) and José Fonte (90th + 3 °) in the second period. Also his defense has risen, as this rescue Pablo Martinez in front of Rafael Leao in recovery time (90 + 3).
In the standings, the Losc temporarily resumes the second in Montpellier (3rd, 25 points), which will go to Angers Saturday night (20:00). Strasbourg remains seventh, three points from European places.
The player: Nicolas Pépé voluntarily but clumsily
Author of a season start in Ligue 1 (eight goals, five assists), Nicolas Pépé has experienced two opposite periods one on Friday: one bouncy, the other without relief. The Ivorian had the merit of trying (five shots) but lacked realism (a square), as the face to face with Sels at the start of the game (4th). He disappeared after the locker room.
Lille have remained at home eight wins in Ligue 1, its longest run in the elite since 2010.
