By force, we will end up believing that Lens is more than an outsider. Attractive in Marseille last weekend (3-2), the Artésiens confirmed at home against Reims, at the start of the 9th day (2-0), Friday October 3.

The Lens performance was less dashing, less spectacular than at the Vélodrome. But the end is the same: the Blood and Gold will pass the international break with the assurance of keeping their place of dolphin. A victory facilitated by the expulsion of Ilan Kebbal just before the break, for a dangerous gesture on Kevin Danso. Unhappy for the young Reims, who at the same time offered a penalty to the locals, transformed by Kalimuendo (45th + 1).

In front at half-time and in numerical superiority, Franck Haise’s players logically doubled the bet on returning from the locker room, by this same Kalimuendo with a cross strike (52nd). A well-controlled second period allowed the Racingmen to validate their fifth victory in nine matches. Reims, well in place if not dangerous, ended up bending. The Champenois are provisionally 12th in the championship.
