While OM were already under pressure on Lens, after Jonathan Clauss (29th) opened the scoring, the Marseillais fell and lost to Lille (1-2) on Saturday in Ligue 1. Jonathan David, on penalty (49th), then Jonathan Bamba (72nd) reversed the situation. The Marseillais lose three important points in the race for second place, occupied by Lens, which moves to Lorient on Sunday (5:05 p.m.). Losc is getting closer to Monaco (4th).
The player of the match: the change of wing of Jonathan Clauss
The question multiplied as he grew in power: wouldn’t Jonathan Clauss be more efficient on the left lane, despite his preference for the right side? The French international responded with a goal and a successful performance, despite the defeat. Clauss started the meeting on the right, where he has his bearings and his desires. But, he found himself lonely, almost useless for his training. After the exit of Samuel Gigot, groggy, the ex-Lensois moved to the left, where he has been performing in recent weeks. Closer to Cengiz Ünder, the Frenchman energized the opposing block, hurt in depth and scored the first goal of the game. His usual technical waste tarnished his performance. Defensively, he managed several decisive returns.
Losc have not lost any of their last 15 home games in Ligue 1 (11 wins, 4 draws). The last setback at Stade Pierre Mauroy dates back to August 31 against Nice (1-2). Andy Delort and Nicolas Pépé neutralized Jonathan Bamba’s opener. With this victory, Lille equalize their best series at home dating from the 2008-2009 season.
