Lille were eliminated by Aston Villa in the quarter-final of the Europa Conference League after a cruel scenario (1-2, 2-1, 3 Tab to 4). The 45,000 Lille supporters present in Villeneuve d'Ascq made their voices heard.

Matty Cash could have been sanctioned after a possible handball in the penalty area during extra time, but history will remember that he was Aston Villa's best offensive player. Pierre Mauroy, the third man on the pitch, deceived Lucas Chevalier by force. Ollie Watkins, the striker, was ghostly. Lille and its unfortunate captain Benjamin André were able to count on the support of theirs despite the terrible disillusionment. The beauty of football takes you through all the emotions. The Lille public understood this well. 5 minutes before a historic qualification for the semi-finals of the European Cup, Cash's goal chills an entire nation. But the supporters, who came in large numbers, were not discouraged and pushed their team into full doubt during overtime.
