Adrien Thomasson as a savior
Substitute at the start of the meeting, Adrien Thomasson was decisive this Saturday at the end of the afternoon.
The Lensoise winter rookie, who came into play in the 72nd minute, equalized at the end of regulation time by perfectly taking back a shot from Wesley Saïd repelled by Gauthier Gallon.
It is his first goal with the Sang et Or in Ligue 1. And it is important that he allowed them to snatch a point.
Yasser Larouci, big first
A goal against the run of play. A few minutes after returning from the locker room, Yasser Larouci, well shifted into the penalty area by Xavier Chavalerin, opened the scoring with a nice cross shot on the ground with his left foot (50th).
An important goal on the collective level since it allowed ESTAC to draw against the second in the championship.
But it is also individually since it is neither more nor less than his first achievement among professionals.

Loïs Openda little in sight
He did not have the usual performance.
In a meeting largely dominated by RC Lens, Loïs Openda – who increased his movements on the front of the attack – was not used much (22 balls touched).
But above all, faced with a compact Trojan defensive system, he struggled to put himself in good striking conditions since he only had the opportunity to try his luck once.
Insufficient for a scorer of his caliber.
He was replaced by Wesley Said shortly after the hour mark (62nd).

RC Lens can blame themselves.
Largely dominating against ESTAC, with 73.5% possession of the ball, the artesian club could not do better than a draw.
However, the Sang et Or had the opportunities to make the difference.
They fired 22 times but only found the frame 4 times.
A lack of efficiency which explains this counter-performance against a formation that plays maintenance.
