He did not succeed in everything but did not hide.

78 minutes of good quality for the Swede who was creative: four successful dribbles out of seven, a very good cross which could have turned into a decisive pass if Amadou Onana had framed his head.

Arrived last winter from Groningen in the Netherlands, for 6 million euros, the 22-year-old Swede is progressing and must continue like this to make Jonathan Ikoné forget who left for Fiorentina.

The defense of Saint-Etienne solidifies

"I realize that As Saint Etienne is more than solid!"

says Pascal Dupraz at the microphone of Amazon Prime.

in a row for the Greens who were very solid defensively.

Mickael Nade did his best against Jonathan Bamba's accelerations, Harold Moukoudi blocked Jonathan David well and Falaye Sacko was solid enough even under pressure.

The Greens climb to 16th place in the championship while waiting for the other matches of the weekend.

Hatem Ben Arfa, on the ground like a lost soul.

He celebrated his 35th birthday this week.

He had 33 at the time of his last goal.

Since leaving Rennes for Valladolid, Hatem Ben Arfa seems completely extinguished.

This evening, the former Nice player did not shoot once and spent 61 minutes wandering around the lawn of the Pierre Mauroy stadium.

Well taken by Camara and Gourna, number 11 has shown nothing of his genius and adds this match to the long list of his missed appointments.

We will have to be much more creative next Wednesday against Chelsea.

Jonathan David, completely transparent

The year 2022 starts with its share of difficulties for Jonathan David.

Apart from his selection where the Canadian is having a blast (2 goals and 1 assist during the last rally), number 9 Lille is struggling to be as clinical as at the start of last season.

Tonight, he failed to create the slightest chance (0 shots) and barely participated in the Lille game.

With 21 balls touched, he is the holder who has touched the ball the least (excluding Renato Sanches).

A game to forget for those who want to join a big club next summer.
