A jarring loss to the French champions already in the second round of the league.
Lil was defeated today (Saturday) by Nice 4-0 and started its way in the 21/22 season in the most unexpected way possible.
Already after 2 minutes Nice climbed on the scoreboard, from a goal by the Dane Caspar Dolberg who starred in the last Euro 2020.
Three minutes passed and the guest was already 2: 0 from a goal by Hashem Bodawi.
On the verge of finishing the first half we also got a goal from Amina Gwyri in the penalty area and this is already the third.
Dolberg completed a double in the 64th minute and sealed the game.
Domestic humiliation for the night.
Beyond the big win, it was also a significant moment for Nice coach Christoph Galatia, who as I recall coached Lille last season and left the team in just two days and won one of the championships.
Completely closing the circle, positive or not?
This is another question.
