Andre Gomes, the prince of the middle
Before his goal, at the very end of the match to conclude the victory of Losc in Rennes (1-3), the performance of André Gomes was already above the others.
So with this goal we approach perfection.
In a dominant environment against Rennes, he is the one who shone the most.
Hyperactive in the midfield, he was fair in his transmissions and launched many of Lille's offensives.
With nearly 100 balls touched, he reigned supreme in this meeting.
Although he is not the fastest of players, he knows how to use his strengths wonderfully with a vision of the game and a technical accuracy that has not found an equivalent on the lawn of Roazhon Park this evening.
The efficiency of Edon Zhegrova
In recent matches, against Clermont and Nice, Lille had failed to find the net.
We thought for almost an hour that history was going to repeat itself.
Even more so after Zhegrova's failed lob against Mandanda.
But it was he who allowed Lille to rediscover the pleasure of scoring.
First with a goal scored by himself (59th), on an excellent service from Angel Gomes, he turned into a passer for Rémy Cabella and the goal of 2-1 (85th).
In addition to this decisive side, he weighed throughout the meeting on the Rennes defense with his numerous provocations to create danger.
The Lucas Chevalier wall
Lucas Chevalier impresses at the moment.
This evening again, he is one of the great protagonists of the Lille victory.
Powerless on Gouiri's opener, he was able to catch up by winning in front of the Rennes striker, despite being in ideal situations (37th and 53rd).
Author of 7 stops, he constantly reassures his defense which knows that it can count on him.
A few weeks from Didier Deschamps' list, Lucas Chevalier knows that places are up for grabs and surely wants to send a message.
And it is Losc who benefits.
Rennes unrecognizable and defeated at home
It all started well with this goal from Gouiri.
We then saw the Rennais unfold against a Losc in doubt offensively.
However, Rennes' domination only lasted about fifteen minutes before being overtaken in almost all sectors.
Less comfortable with the ball than usual, Stade Rennais suffered against the Lille midfielder who left nothing to the Tait-Santamaria-Bourigeaud trio.
They still had a few chances to score thanks to good balls in depth but the efficiency was not at the rendezvous this evening.
Rennes therefore lost for the first time this season at home and saw their evening opponent return to two units in the standings.
Leny Yoro's mistake... without consequences
For a 17-year-old, his match is successful.
But how not to mention his big mistake at the very start of the match?
20 seconds after kick-off, he misses his control in front of his box and allows Gouiri to open the scoring.
A mistake that could have cost his team dearly.
But fate does things well and the goal conceded did not prevent Losc from winning.
This will surely serve as a lesson to young Yoro.
Note the support of his partners just after the goal who went to support the central defender.
As Djalo said at the microphone of Canal + at the break: “
Mistakes happen to everyone.
