Ligue 1: Lille crushes the neighbor Lensois and takes the lead of the championship

2020-10-18T21:31:01.268Z

By easily winning the North derby against Lens (4-0), the LOSC validates an almost perfect start to the year.



To laugh, he harangued the "imaginary" crowd of Pierre-Mauroy, deprived of representation because of camera, before miming a phone call to celebrate his goal.

Let Jonathan Bamba's interlocutor be reassured: LOSC is present at the start of the season.

Like his winger, totally recovered after a disappointing last season, the Mastiffs bite vigorously in all the oppositions offered.

Latest victim to date: the Lensois, yet 5th in the championship, totally overwhelmed by the liveliness of their neighbor and certainly little helped by their indiscipline (2 expulsions).

Five victories in seven games, 19 goals scored, 2 goals conceded ... The statistics of the new leader of Ligue 1 are eloquent and confirm the impression given by Christophe Galtier's men: a clever mix of efficiency, youth and of experience.

On all lines, the LOSC seems armed to fight at the head of the championship for many months.

Neo-international, the goalkeeper Mike Maignan is perfectly protected by Captain Fonte, back this Sunday after having contracted the Covid-19, and the new Dutch recruit Botman, 20, imperial against the Blood and Gold.

Only disappointment: Jonathan David

Up front, it's another rookie, much more experienced who shines.

At the height of his 35 years, the Turkish Yilmaz has successfully integrated.

Full of opportunism, he headed a ball from a free kick to put his people on the right track.

Useful in discounts, he even tried a set piece.

The replacements are also affected.

Ikoné and Yacizi, both left out at kick-off, aggravated the score against the northern rival.

The only unbeaten team in the championship with Rennes, Lille has two points ahead of PSG and the Bretons.

All the lights are green before starting a new European campaign this Thursday against Slavia Prague in the Europa League.

The only downside?

New recruit Jonathan David has yet to score.

But, given the form of his teammates, we would bet that it will not be long.
