Lille-Toulouse (2-1)
Lille: David (5th), Ounas (53rd)
Toulouse: Chaibi (48th)

Lille beat (2-1) Toulouse on Saturday evening, at the Pierre Mauroy stadium, during the 8th day of Ligue 1. A meeting marked by Lille's mastery in the face of Toulouse's lack of realism.

The first period is marked by a mastery of LOSC which frustrated the visitors of Pierre Mauroy. On a quick counter from Lille, Jonathan David was perfectly served in depth after a good triangle game from LOSC. The Canadian delayed on the right side of the surface before wrapping his shot in the skylight (5th). Toulouse did not deserve in this first act but struggled to be effective. The offensive animation of the TFC was sorely lacking in accuracy and realism despite a domination of possession (54%) or a greater number of shots attempted (9 shots). On the other hand, the Mastiffs got fewer chances but all their opportunities were frank and dangerous: Angel Gomes also missed the goal of the break after putting three purple defenders in the wind with a dribble, his shot was too crushed to deceive Maxime Dupé (26th).

Immediate reactions

In the second half, Toulouse equalized immediately, taking advantage of a very big mistake from the Lille defense to deceive Chevalier in the wake of Chaibi (48th). But LOSC rebounded in the minutes that followed thanks to Adam Ounas who volleyed the superb opening from Benjamin André (52nd). Served in depth, Bamba missed the goal of the break on an occasion of three against one where he hesitated too much between the shot and the pass (58th). The Toulousains were much less dangerous in the second half, framing only one strike out of the five attempts in the last act. Opposite, Lille remained focused to pocket an important victory despite some defensive errors.

In the standingsLille scores three valuable points to settle temporarily in 6th place, while Toulouse remains in the soft underbelly in 12th position.
