Lens is no longer advancing.
More points lost by the Sang et Or, who could not do better than a draw on the lawn of Brest (1-1) on the occasion of the 22nd day of Ligue 1. After a first half a little sluggish, the pace went up a notch thereafter.
Ultra dominating, Franck Haise's men struggled for a long time to find the fault against a well organized and very solid Brest block.
If they could (should) have benefited from a penalty for a hand in the first period, it was the Lensois who conceded the first goal.
Scored by Le Douaron on a serve from Lees Melou (54'), he was also tainted with a hand at the start of the action.

Arbitration decisions that made the Lensois staff react without discouraging the Sang et Or. RC Lens then pushed to come back, but came up against Marco Bizot, in great shape and author of 7 saves this evening.
And yet, it was on an error on his part that the Brestois conceded the equalizer.
Trying to clear with his foot, in an incomprehensible way, it was he who offered the equalizer to Jonathan Gradit (83 ').
Not destabilized, he managed to impose himself as boss in front of Lascary to keep the point of the draw (87 ').
In the standings, Lens remains 3rd and could see Marseille move away in the event of a victory against Nice.
Brest confirms its good series and climbs to 14th place.
Fifth game in a row without defeat in the league for Eric Roy's men.
