RC Lens puts an end to the bleeding. Winners of Toulouse (0-2) on Sunday for the 19th day of Ligue 1, the Sang et Or resume their march forward after three consecutive defeats in all competitions.
David Pereira Da Costa (42nd) and Andy Diouf (55th) are the scorers. Toulouse missed a penalty at the end of the match and remains 14th in the standings. Lens consolidates its 8th place and returns to equal points with Marseille.
The Toulouse residents entered their meeting perfectly. They were very aggressive from the start and projected themselves into the area of the Bloods and Gold who were having difficulty getting on the right track. But by not carrying out their actions, the people of Toulouse regained confidence in the people of Lens. The locals found themselves subject to opposing pressure and no longer got out of their camp as easily. Discreet, the northern attackers made good use of the few opportunities they created. But after a good offensive phase spent in front of the opposing area, Pereira Da Costa was found in the area, on a nice opening over the defense. The young Portuguese hopeful let the ball bounce before adjusting Guillaume Restes to give his team the advantage (0-1, 41st).
Returning from the locker room, the Toulouse team were more offensive and seemed determined to come back. But the Lensois were now full of confidence. They brought out the balls much faster and tried many more technical gestures to speed up the pace of the match. On a corner poorly cleared by the defense, Andy Diouf burst out when the ball landed and with his bad foot (the right) sent the ball into the top corner (0-2, 55th). Behind, Toulouse never really appeared dangerous at the end of the match. Despite a glimmer of hope thanks to a penalty obtained in the last minutes (80th). Captain Vincent Sierro's attempt crashed into the bar just like Toulouse's hopes of taking points this Sunday.
