Openda started the game in the ranks of Lens, while opposite, Brecht Dejaegere started on the Toulouse bench. Philippe Montanier, the coach of the TFC, had indeed decided to rotate his workforce three days after his team’s victory in the Coupe de France.
Loïs Openda shook the nets in the 33rd minute with a crossed header. Already author of an express hat-trick in the first leg (3-0), the Red Devil, who scored his 18th goal of the season in Ligue 1, was replaced by Rémy Labeau Lascary in the 83rd minute. Brecht Dejaegere got into the game in the 71st.
Third with 69 points, Lens is 1 point behind Marseille, 2nd, before Saturday’s clash at Bollaert between the northern club and OM for 2nd place, qualifying for the group stage of the Champions League, while the 3rd place issues a ticket for the preliminary rounds of the C1.
Marseilles and Northerners can also still dream of the title. Leader, PSG, beaten 1-3 by Lorient on Sunday, is 5 and 6 points ahead of OM and Lens.
