Same place, same time of the season. RC Lens had already done well last season, with a successful game in Monaco (0-2). Yesterday, in a Louis-II stadium again annexed by his fans, he once again raised the cursor against a European team that remained at 12 victories in Ligue 1, and which he lowered to the rank of subject.
” Of course we are stronger than last season. », says Przemyslaw Frankowski. ” We have a slightly more complete team in any case “, sums up Seko Fofana. ” This is one of our best matches. “, ends by recognizing Franck Haise. In his role, the Lensois coach moderates: ” We played the game we expected to play. Seven points, with two trips that weren’t easy, bodes well. Now three days have passed, we will remain humble, calm, we will continue working. »
Four Lensois scorers
All in confidence and determination, the Lensois, however, offered a collective demonstration. There was everything in this complete and controlled game: obvious game intentions, well-executed movements with successful ball exits under pressure from the Monegasques, combinations, randomly applied passes, four goals from four different players and even a pinch of suspense! ! But, to tell the truth, when Monaco revived, Badiashile rose above all to head in a corner from Caio Henrique (1-2, 41st), no wind of panic crossed these Lensois ranks where, with or without the ball, everyone works for others.
And behind a central defender and midfielder (Samed) muzzling ASM’s set attacks, Brice Samba was reassuring again. The Lensois goalkeeper made two great saves, with a parade of reflexes against Minamino (16th) and a head-to-head victory against Ben Yedder that had eliminated Danso (59th).
The lens is magnified
Against a Monaco that was a different player than Ajaccio the week before (0-0) and in a field that also allowed it, Lens gained momentum, like David Pereira Da Costa or Seko Fofana, author of a huge game. Loïs Openda stunned the Monegasque defense and scored his first goal for RC Lens, in a very successful move: Frankowski’s header towards Florian Sotoca, who found Pereira Da Costa in the box. The young attacking midfielder can then cross into the Belgian international striker who pushes the ball into the goal (0-1, 7th). Lensois’s second goal is also a first in Ligue 1 for Deiver Machado, at the conclusion of a move started by Sotoca, followed by a long Fofana backhand blocked by Vanderson which the Colombian Piston recovers before turning into the area to adjust a cross shot. (0-2, 38th). Then it was Sotoca who cleverly provoked a penalty, transformed into force by Fofana (1-3, 55th). And if we still had to add to the collective power of this team, Wesley Saïd barely entered the game and moved around… Fofana added a fourth (1-4 78), not bad either: a hook over Diatta, before tricking Nubel from afar. Cutting this lens!
