The North derby did not find a winner tonight.
This Saturday, RC Lens and LOSC each had their half-time and seeing the two teams part with the score of 1-1 is ultimately logical.
If RC Lens, with a rediscovered Seko Fofana, largely dominated the first half, Franck Haise's players did not know how to be dangerous enough and had to wait until the 41st minute to go ahead in the score thanks to a goal against his camp of Jose Fonte.
It must be said that they fell on a good Lucas Chevalier in the goals of Lille who is becoming more and more a safe bet in the championship.
But he wasn't the only one to shine tonight.

Opposite him, Brice Samba had to wait for the second period to really be called upon.
If he could not do anything on the goal of Jonathan David (69 ') after two saves in quick succession, he is the man of the match for RC Lens.
By making three saves in the last quarter of an hour, Brice Samba allowed the Sang & Or to keep a point in this Northern derby.
With this result, Lens is still skating and could see Monaco pass them if the Monegasques win against Troyes this Sunday (3:00 p.m.).
The Lille as for them, remain in contact but still do not integrate the European places.
