Lille, logical but cruel

Le Losc lost to Ajax on Thursday in the round of 16 first leg of the Europa League (1-2). Hard to swallow but not illogical.

Lille in the round of 16 of the Europa League, it is not won… This Thursday in the 16th first leg, at home, the Mastiffs suffered the law of Ajax (1-2), thus greatly compromising their chan

these qualifying. A cruel scenario but rather logical in view of the physiognomy of the debates. The premises having blithely suffered the domination of their evening opponents.

Two-thirds of the time, in fact, the ball remained under the batavian studs, allowing the latter to afford the best opportunities – like this half-volley from Blind and this catch from Neres at close range sent to the crossbar. However, Galtier’s men had the merit of opening the scoring, on an opportunistic counter concluded by Weah (1-0, 72nd).

Two minutes too long

A quarter of an hour later, however, in the money time, the game shifted in favor of the Lancers. It was first a penalty caused by Sanches and transformed by Tadic who put the Batavians back in the saddle (1-1, 87th). Then Brobbey to drive the point home in stride, facing a Maignan abandoned by his rear guard (1-2, 89th). Turning the tide in a week in Amsterdam will not be easy for Lille, who have another hare to run in the league.
